Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired lawyer, age 82 in Oct 2014, on Chicago's North Side. Interested in the genealogy of Meigs County, Ohio and Braxton County, West Virginia. I will readily transfer graves that are not my immediate family, and am eager to transfer graves to younger Findagrave users before I become a memorial.

RE: Thanks for Sponsorship
Because Elizabeth A. Decker was my 2nd great grandmother and also including her parents in my sponsoring, it is my pleasure to do so, in honor of our common ancestors. My regards. It's nice to find living relatives along the way and also contribute to, which I find a very worthy site that helps all of us.

RE: Sponsor of #67697989
Yes Ronald, the Decker family is also in my family line. Deborah Oliver Decker and her husband, Aaron Decker were my 3rd great grandparents. Their second oldest daughter, Elizabeth A. Decker, who married William E. Hall are my 2nd great grandparents. So I guess we are related distantly.
I sponsor my ancestors to give assistance to an organization I feel is a very essential "tool" for all of us who are seeking our family ancestral lines.

RE: Isaac Decker, #106546482
The Decker history is informative. I have transferred Isaac to you. Hope this helps you put the pieces together. As for Manerva, I believe the birth date is incorrect on Find a grave. The marker clearly states she was age 2 & died in 1853.

You are correct that I am local to the area. I have to go back several generations, for any of my immediate relatives to be from anywhere else but here! My roots are very deep. I am very willing to accept the transfer of Abigail. I have managed the cemetery records for Perry Township for several years, and do not plan to stop anytime soon. It has been a passion of mine to make sure all of the burials in the township are recorded for their heirs.

If I can be of any help to you, please let me know,

I went to the cemetery to double check the date for Isaac, what I have recorded in correct with the marker.

In addition the markers for Emily - age 1(d. 22 Jan 1949), Manerva - age 2(d. 31 Aug 1853), and John W.- age 1 (d. 04 Sep 1854? - could be 1851 - maybe its 1853 and Abigail, Manerva, & John died of the same illness??, but I don't think that's what it says.), also list Aaron & Deborah as the parents. The stones are barely readable. All are in poor condition, some parts worse.

The six Decker markers are in a single row, grouped by themselves. Starting at the left is John W, Manerva, Abigail, Isaac, Emily J, then Samuel Oliver. Samuel's marker does not include "Decker", but has been listed on find-a-grave as such.

Hope this is useful information,

I got the death information from the cemetery marker. So, I'm unsure about the difference in the information. If you would like me to make any changes, please let me know.

Hi Ronald, I saw that you created the memorial for my great grandparents Glenda and William Persinger, and you transferred the memorial to Sharon Curry. Just wondering if you are related to them? Thank you

Thank you so much for the information for Prof Sutherland. It is great to have more information about him, and to link to his parents.

Mr. Decker,
Thank you so much for the correction and information on John Francis. I'm sorry it took me so long to fix it, I had a baby! :)
