Birth: unknown
Death: Nov. 26, 1864
Pointe Coupee Parish
Louisiana, USA

Capt. U.S. Navy. Thatcher was killed near the mouth of the Red River in Louisiana commanding the U.S. gunboat Gazelle.

Brigadier General Daniel Ullmann informed his superiors in a letter of the 27th that Thatcher, who was "on shore with 2 men at Raccourci, near Williamsport, was murdered by guerrillas and horribly mutilated." Lieutenant-Commander J.J. Cornwell reported that he seemed to have been murdered simply to take his boots and gun.
