How sure of the birth date (and other details) are you? There are several John Thayers born at about that time:

  1. Ancestry.com has a index-only record for a John Thayer born in Taunton, Massachusetts on 27 August 1792, said to be listed in Taunton Vital Records. I found a readable copy of the record; this is not a birth of a son named John.
  2. John Thayer was born 25 May 1791 at Mendon, Massachusetts, son of Peter Thayer and Abigail his wife. - Mendon Town Records, at Ancestry.com. - Vital Records of Mendon on American Ancestors.org.  A user contribution to Find-A-Grave says this man was named John G. Thayer and he was buried in Michigan in 1849; no sources cited.
  3. John Thayer was born 27 April 1791 at Ware, Massachusetts, son of Silas and Rachel Thayer (apparently Silas's second wife; first wife was Parly) - Ware Town Records, at Ancestry.com
  4. John Thayer was born 11 April 1790 at Braintree, Massachusetts, son of Robert and Rebecca Thayer, per Braintree Vital Records

John G Thayer, age 58, is in the 1850 Census at Evans, Erie County, New York. I guess this is your ancestor. Other Thayers in the household are: Mary age 31, George A age 7, Prudence M age 4, John P age 3, and Caroline age 21.
