About Our Family Research
I have recently really gotten into researching my Family history. I have found a completely new part of my Family in Louisiana, that was given to me by The family of Wade Noland Decker. The Family through the life of Great Grandfather Samuel (James) Decker of Jackson, Louisiana, connects with the Deckers in New Jersey. There are connections with Thomas Decker (his Father). Daniel Decker, Thomas' father. A Thomas Decker, Daniel's father. A Hendrick Decker, Thomas' father. A Jan Gerretsen, Hendrick's father. Last, possibly a Gerit Gerritsen's ,Jan Gerritsen's father. I would appreciate all the help we can get to get our family lineage correct. It amazes me how so many Decker families are tied together. God Bless us all. John Decker
