I am looking for the burial place, date and time of John Decker and his wife Mary J.
I know John owned a hardware store in 1862 on Kille St., Kewaunee, WI called 'John Decker and Son' - with his son Andrew J. Decker.
In the 1860 census John and Mary J. are living in harford Co., Maryland.
The 1870 Census (August 1870) places John and Mary J. in Winneconne Village, Winnebago Co., WI, and Andrew and wife living next door.
The 1880 census (June 1880) lists Mary J. as a widow living with her daughter Amanda Eccles in Pierce, Kewaunee Co., WI - she was 77 then. I believe she died shortly thereafter.
John was born in Maine in 1810. Mary J. was born in Ireland in 1811.
Maryland is a long way from Wisconsin. I need some help on this one. Can anyone come up with the burial info on John and Mary J. for me. It would be a great help.
