Looking for information on Sceva Thayer born 1847 I believe.. he is the son of Sceva Thayer 1821. This is what I do know that he lived in Petersburg, Va. and at the age of 19 was sentenced to 10 years in the penitentiary for robbery.Many brushes with the law. I did locate him in the 1860 census. I have not found anymore information on him after the sentencing. Could anyone give me more information on what happened to him? Did he die in prison,get married? Where did he serve his time? Any help would be great.. thanks in advance.
