Excerpt from Memorial of the Thayer Name, From the Massachusetts Colony of Weymouth and Braintree, Embracing Genealogical and Biographical Sketches of Richard Thomas Thayer, and Their Descendants From 1636 to 1874
The more one studies history, and races, and families, the more he must be convinced of. The marked and permanent inﬂuences of blood, despite all the crossings by inter marriages. Every genealogist has marked and marveled at the continuance from generation to generation of some particular type of character that was visible in the earliest known ancestor._ This fact has been strikingly illustrated in the two Thayer families and their descendants to this day; it is visible to any man of talent. To read aright the lesson of human history, to reach wise and safe generalizations, one must not forget the law of descent and force there is in blood or race.
