Searching for information on Hannah W. Hanes who was born in 1831, died 1912, and was buried in the South Cemetery in Lyons, Wayne County. Buried next to her is William C. Decker who was born in 1883 and died in 1941 in Lyons. I have a letter that was written to my great-grandmother from William C. Decker in 1936, who was inquiring about the Hanes family as he was putting together the Hanes/Decker family tree. William Decker's maternal grandmother was from the Hanes family, but he provided little information about how he fits into the family tree or his grandmother in the letter. Any help on these two families is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
