Hi Val,

This information on the Decker family in NY is from the same source as the other stuff that I just sent to you just before this message. Notice the same names as your Decker's names here, such as Alanson and Jesse:

73. LT. JONATHAN8 OWEN (Ebenezer7, Jonathan6, George5, Richard4, Edward3, David2, David1) was born in 1749 at Middletown, Orange Co., NY. He married Catherine Eleanor Kortwright, daughter of Cornelius Kortwright and Phoebe Decker, circa 1772 at Blooming Grove, Orange Co., NY. Marriage banns for he were published in 1800 at Tompkins Co, NY. He died on 21 Aug 1814 at Ulysses, Seneca Co., NY.
He Jonathan OWEN (779), born 5 Dec 1767 at Hamptonburg, Orange, NY, died 26 Feb 1827 at Middletown, Orange, NY, son of Jonathan OWEN (746) and Eleanor KORTWRIGHT (745). SOURCE NOTES: !In the Haynes Ms, "Before 1817 Probates of Tompkins Co, NY" (at Cornell City library, Ithaca, NY.) in the will of Jonathan Sr., probated 26 Aug 1814, Seneca Co, he is referred to as son Jonathan of Ulysses. Jonathan Owen's will, probated 26 Aug 1814, Seneca Co., NY, lists his six sons, then 4 daughters, no indication of place in family.. The book, Owen and Carman Families, (28 pages), by Freelove Owen Pyle in 1907, lists the same children names as the will, states "All but William emigrated to Central New York in 1804". DAR Sources, see Notes on his father, Jonathan Owen, b. 1749.

               vi.       TEMPERANCE; b. circa 1781 at Bedford, Westchester Co., NY.


Val, it was Daniel Decker that Charity Owen married, not Aaron Decker. Sorry about the mistake in the previous message. It was they were the parents of Aaron, who this same document says was the father of Jesse Decker. But your will says it was Moses Decker (Aaron's brother?)

Thanks again for your help!

Cynthia
