Col. John E. Thayer (1861-1933) was one of twin boys born to Nathaniel Thayer II and Cornelia van Rensselaer Thayer. The longest surviving of the four brothers who maintained estates in the town, he is perhaps best known for his vast collection of North American bird specimens. Thayer's interests were broad and, in addition, he raised a variety of dog breeds and harness horses at his Maplehurst Stock Farm. He took an active interest in town affairs, serving as selectman and tree warden for many years.
