I will contact the two researchers I have e-mailed on this family. If they have no problem with sharing, I will forward my e-mails and their responses to you. This will give you some leads to check.
Sophia Groscost and John Decker are my third great grandparents as well so your wife and I are distant cousins! Their son, John G. Decker (1833-1897) married in 1864 Emma Erisman (1845-1887) of Lancaster County. John Decker was with the 77th Pennsylvania Infantry from 1861-1865. I have found most of their children and families in census records up to 1930, also some of his siblings. I also have some newspaper references on a couple of his siblings. My line is through John's daughter, Catherine (1872-1951) who married Martin Mellinger Musser s/o Christian and Elizabeth Mellinger Musser of West Hempfield Twp. near Columbia.
I'd be glad to share what I have so far once I get it better organized(that takes awhile). Please contact me directly at enjardinatfrontiernet.net, substituting the usual symbol for the word if you are interested in corresponding further. Hope to hear from you.
