I have Sarah Bovee, Elizabeth's sister, as wife of Jacob P. and buried as Sarah Decker. Did she have a second husband named Ingram but buried with her first husband's name?

Also, I forgot to bring up in my previous email when I discussed the Palmatier/Decker connection that Cornelia Bovee, another sister of Elizabeth and Sarah, was married to Peter Palmatier and the mother of Frederick Palmatier and Hannah Mary Palmatier.

To add more confusion to this mix---Hannah Mary Palmatier's husband Thomas Denison was also married to Mary Ward at one time and Mary Ward was the sister of Abiram LaVerne Ward who married Harriet Decker (my great-grandmother).

Sarah House

Evidence of Sarah's maiden name being house comes from the following:

1870 Census: Mary House (8) living with family


684. John N Decker

Biography of Robert Decker states that John N Decker and Mary Melius had four sons and five daughters.
All were dead by the time of the biography of Robert Decker in 1894.

Also, note from Betsy:

********NOTE: Rear Admiral Benton Weaver Decker lists three more children. I did not include them as they were listed as children of John Decker and Polly. There was another John Decker married to a Polly. My John Decker was usually listed as John N. and Polly Melius. The three children I have not listed are :

John Lewis Decker b 20 Aug 1833

John Rensalaer Decer b 7 Oct 1835

Charlotte Ann Decker b 19 Dec 1838

Also, they were not listed in the 1850 census. They may in fact be children of John N. and Polly Melius and had died young, but I tend to think they belonged to John J. Decker and Polly Wismer who had children in the same time period.

957. Reuben Hamm

Notes from Betsy:

Notes for REUBEN HAMM:

1900 Biographies, Columbia County, New York

HAM, Reuben, p.o. Claverack, N.Y. was born in the town of Livingston, N.Y., April 29, 1844, son of Zechariah and Charity (Decker) Ham, one of a family of twelve children, of whom but three are deceased. He was educated in the district's schools and until he was thirty-one years of age remained at home, assisting his father in his farm work. Upon leaving home he engaged in the butchering business in Livingston, which he carried on for eight years, when he removed to Claverack in 1883. He has continued in the same business since. In 1899 Mr. Ham was elected supervisor of the town of Claverack for a term of two years, and is interested in all measures conducive to the welfare of the town and its people. He is a member of St. John Lodge No. 7, F. & A.M. He married on January 22, 1874, to Helen A., daughter of Robert and Mary C. (Best) Rockefeller. They have no children.


690. Henry Decker

Information on Henry Decker and Hannah is from Betsy except where noted.

Notes from Betsy:

************Note:****************************************************

THE INFORMATION BELOW HAS NOT BEEN VERIFIED. However, study the census and see that there is a close relationship as children are living with RUFUS and Catharine. Benton Weaver Decker apparently has Henry Decker (son of Joseph) b 1815 listed with the children I have listed below. My HENRY was born 1807 and the ages in the census would more likely be my HENRY than the Henry born in 1815. You may choose to add this following information or simply keep the notes until or when this is verified.

He married HANNA UNKNOWN. She was born 1810, and died August 20, 1850 in Livingston, Columbia Cty, New York38.
