In Reply to: Deckard Family in Niangua, Webster Co, MO by Raya Krause of 646

Dear Raya: I am not clear on what additional Deckard family information you have, but if you have not yet reviewed Percy Deckard's book you could do that. The Deckard's arrived in Webster Co., Mo., in 1840, including William, Jesse, and Catherine, all of whom had formerly resided in Wright County, Indiana. The Webster County newspaper "The Marshfield Mail" dated March 23, 1905 in the "Old Settkers Column" includes an interview with one Sylvester Deckard, b. 1835, who stated among other items of interest that he had arrived there in 1840. There are Jesse Wesley and John Wesley Deckards in several generations probably from Jesse Wesley Deckard, b. 1809 in Wytheville, VA and d. in Niangua, MO 11/23/1887. My line goes from Johannes Jacob Deckard, b. 1757 in Metz, Germany/France; Jesse Wesley Deckard, b. 1809; Jacob Deckard, b. 1837; Joseph Sigle Deckard, b. 2/6/1862; Nellie Jane Deckard Dean, b. 4/26/1899. I have considerable info on these ancestors and photos going back to Joseph Sigle Deckard.
