Where would you suggest we look (where is elsewhere?)
Ron Deckard has been overseas and to most of the prominent genealogy libraries. He has researched the Deckard lineage for over 40 years and has yet to connect OUR JACOB.
Percy Deckard did a great job with the time in history and with the resources available at that time. He obviously relied on information which was flawed or given for personal gain. If anyone out there has proven information to link Jacob Deckard (the Revolutionary Patriot) to the Deckards, please step up to the plate. And please do not reference the records in Percy. Yes, there are records but we must prove that Jacob is OUR Jacob.
It is in every Deckard's interest to help fill in the blanks, provide information, support (with documentation) the link to Jacob and Elizabeth. It is our duty to future generations.
It is not helpful to continue citing old information that leads nowhere. It is not helpful to believe unproven facts that, at one time, fullfilled the need of an ancestor.
Citing for example: Martha Boatwright and Julia Deckard who were accepted into DAR with sketchy information. The DAR eventually denied their memberships.
Come on...............Deckards.............Step up to the plate and help get the facts, all the facts, strung together, with proof, to show which Jacob Deckard is truly our ancestor.
