Hi Maxine,
              Do you know your lineage back to Jan Gerritsen Decker? I am descended from him through his son Gerrit Janse Decker. I am also descended from Jan Broerson Decker through his daughter Grietje Janse Decker, who married Gerrit Janse Decker. I have a terrible memory but it seems I remember a Floyd Decker in my research (Texas?) anyway e-mail me back with the info that you have so far and we can start from there.
                Looking forward to hearing from you. Debbie

I am new here, but hoping to find a connection.
I am looking for the parents of a Thomas J. Decker born 1813 or so in Luzerne PA.  I have all the information I need on his wife and children all the down to myself.
What I really need is to find his parents ???
His wife is Sarah Bodfish and her parents are Prudence Ingersol and James Bodfish.

I am also looking for information on Benjamin Decker Born May 28 1749, who married a Rachel Brink born abt 1741. He fought in the Revolutionary War and died at age 88 I believe. They had one son that I know of named James born abt 1776.
I have seen information posted about a Benjamin Decker and a Rachel Brink, but those 2 were born abt 1714 or so.  I have no idea if these are the same couple or not.  I am just going on what I have on a DAR application.
Any information would be very helpful.
Many thanks,

I just figured out how to use this message board.

I am interested in find out if any of you have information on a James Decker that was the Speaker of the House of the Nebraska Territory in 1858.  He lived in Nebraska City.  

My husbands family came from Wellsburg, New York in the Elmira area near thePennsylvania border.

James and Charlotte Decker
