Just recieved the death record of Lydia Elva Deckard LeMasters.There were a couple of questions that I was hoping someone out there might be able to answer.
that Lydia's parents were John Deckard and Nancy Ping - however, her death record states that her father was Richard Decker.Was this a mistake on the part of whoever gave the information or have I been chasing the wrong line?Is it possible that Johns middle name was Richard and maybe that is what he wenI have always thought t by?I have researched the John Deckard Line through the years census and in 1860, 1870 and 1880 he is always listed as John Deckard.
On Lydia's Death Record it states her full name as Lydia Edna LeMasters.Is it Edna or Elva??????
I look forward to hearing some thoughts on these issues.
