His nephew, Silas Lee, was also a resident of Biddeford and the two maintained a steady correspondence over the years while Thacher was away in congressional session. Their succession of letters reflect the blend of familial humor and public service that seemed to have been the hallmark of his life. After his death on April 6, 1824, Thacher was interred in Woodlawn Cemetery in Biddeford.
