In Reply to: Sarah (Decker) Purcell given slave by father by Shelby Purcell of 2194

Shelby, Can you tell me a little bit about the father of Sara Decker? John Decker? Who did he marry? I am originally from Vincennes, In and my brother Tim Foley still lives there. He lives in Doctor Curtner's old house on 6th St. Anyways, my gggg grandfather was a John W. Younger of Shelbyville,KY. His sister Amelia Younger m. Isaac Hardin and they lived in Breckinridge,KY. Amelia's daughter,Mahala Hardin m. John A. Decker(out of the Decker family out of Pike and Gibson County,IN.) Mahala and John Decker had Harlie, Charlie, William Fletcher, Mahala,Francis H., Laura Jane, all Deckers of course. Do you know how these Deckers relate to the John Decker and Sara Purcell Decker above? I know these Decker's all married into each other somehow. John W. Younger's cousin was Charles Younger m. Sara Sullivan Purcell. And was the grandfather of the "Younger Brothers gang". My great grandmother, Emma Younger Pittman, was one of their cousins. Do you live in Vincennes?
