thank you for looking.... According to the short obituary written in the Omaha World Herald dated 22 June 1911, Joseph Decker died the day before on his farm near Benson, Malheur, Oregon, just a few short weeks after moving there for his health. It also stated he was buried there.
Joseph was born in Illinois in 1867, orphaned 1878, found in the cencus (1880) and living in the home of those who took the two young surviving youngsters, in Omaha, Nebraska. (His parents and two siblings died of Yellow fever in Memphis, where the family recently moved.)
The short article talked about his relatively famous father, a conductor for the Omaha Philharmonic Orchestra.
Hope this is of help to you....
