Re: Deckle G. B.
Hi; Janell. My younger brother, Alfred T. Powell, married in 1949, into the Deckle family. Her name was Dorothy Sue and they had 9 children. She died a few years ago. The reason for this message is to let you know that you can find much information on the net by entering in the browser address space, the name of Deckle and any county or state you know of. The name was Dekle in the beginning in this country. They came from Hanover, Germany.
Two brothers and a cousin, as I remember. Try first;
When you get through there, start with the State of Georgia, and especially the City of Savannah. At home in Alabama, I have two Deckle Descendancy Lines but I'm going to be in New York a couple of more months so I can't access them.
When I was a boy, my brother and I used to tease the two oldest girls in that family.[1937, mind you.] They passed us off as their boyfriends. There were 13 children in that family. He married the snotty nose one who always ran around with her drawers dragging her legs. She was 3 at the time.
How time flies.
All for now. Regards;ELTON
