Eli A Thatcher

Photographer: E. A. Thatcher
Tipton, Ind.

Eli A Thatcher
(23 May 1862 -31 Jan 1895)

Eli A. Thatcher was a photographer from about 1880 to the spring of 1894. Although the name was found in the US Census of 1870 and 1880, nothing would connect the photographer to the entry. There were no city directories available for Tipton, Indiana.

He died at age 30. His Obituary was about all that was found that told his sad story.

There was some additional information in the obituary of his wife Retta (shown below) who died two years later.
