Thank you Laura . I would have been a long time finding any of this and probably wouldn't have found only part of what you have .
Every time I get some new info on my family line , I find that many of Abner Decker's children didn't have his, or his wife's birth place correct . I am not sure if they just didn't feel that those things were important back then . I know many kept track of those things in a family bible . Abner was born in KY , 1811/13, his second wife Eliza lists IND. as her birth place . She was a full blood Amer. indian of tha Sauk tribe . She lists her parents as bieng born in Cand. I know the tribe saddled the border of Mich. and Cand.. At the time Eliza was born Indiana may have included MO.. I think I remember an old map showing Indiana extending all the way up thourgh ILL. in the very early pioneer period , of the late 1700's to early 1800's .
Abner had 12 children that I know of , 6 with his first wife Elizabeth Hickman ,from Casey co KY and 6 with Eliza Jane pratt . On Eliza's death certificate they lists her father as W. Scranton. She was living with her daughter Mary Triplett at the time , in Benton co MO.
Thanks again , take care, Bob Decker ,
