There are a few pretty good websites about the Dekle Family out of the web.Mine is Dekle.freehomepage.com and another that I just found today is www.Dekle.net.Both websites are spinoff's from an original book titled Dekle and the Dekle Descendants of the U.S.A. written by Ansel Dekle III in 1975 and updated very well by Anne Dekle in 1998.
Most of the information I have on the Dekle family is from these books.I have tried to update my site with any information from any person that can link to the Dekle family.I have about a thousand names on my site, with a couple of thousand more names to enter, as well as many, many pictures of distant families.
I have read all of the previous (23) postings on this forum today (10 May 2001).I have information on Thomas (Irwin) Ervin Dekle, b-15 may 1824 d-12 mar 1908.I have his wife as Mary Elizabeth Cone and Lou Ella as his daughter.The book mentions that Thomas was named "Irwin in honor of the county in which they lived. (Evidently Thomas Irvin didn't like the way Irwin was spelled so he later changed the Irwin to Ervin)."
I hope these websites and this information may help some of you.I would be more than happy to discuss how little I know about the Dekles and any links that I can find for you.I would be happy to include any information on Dekle Descendants that I don't have.
