African Jacob Deckard
Posted by: Ron Deckard (ID *****1699) Date: February 13, 2007 at 17:23:52
  of 646

A ship passenger list reportedly lists a Jacob Deckard, who was born around Feb. 9, 1840, was married, and a U.S. citizen living in Indianapolis, Indiana when he made a trip to Caribbean islands. Maybe he had business or relatives there. On the return trip he sailed from Kingston, Surrey, Jamaica and the Cayman Islands on the ship Sibiria and arrived back in the U.S. on August 9, 1904. At that time his age was 64 years and six months. His ethnicity was given as African. Does anyone have further information on this Jacob Deckard.
