This is probably from the late 1880s. According to "A Directory of Early Illinois Photographers" by Marie Czach, there are records of L. R. Thayer in Tonica in 1886 and 1888.

I would guess this is closer to 1888 or a little later, since the photo doesn't seem to be very yellow. See "Camera Clues" by Joe Nickell for basics on dating photos by physical characteristics.
