1264. Fred Decker

Note from Betsy:

1900 Biographies, Columbia County, New York pg 51-52

DECKER ,Fred, of Livingston, N.Y. was born in that town, October 29, 1864, the only child of Nicholas and Rachel (Scism) Decker. Nicholas was the only son of Rufus and Catherine (Bortle) Decker. Rufus was the son of Nicholas, and his father was the first of the family in the country. He came from Germany and purchased a large tract of land which was divided into four farms and given to his different sons. Fred Decker's great-grandfather was on the building committee of the Lutheran Church at Churchtown. The farm where he now resides is known as the Decker homestead, upon which some one of the family has lived since it was taken up six generations back. Fred Decker was educated in the public schools and at Troy Business College. After his graduation from the latter institution in 1883 he was employed by J. M. Warren & Co. of Troy, as a bookkeeper, where he remained nearly six years. In 1888 he returned to the old home where he is associated with his father in farming, making a specialty of small fruits; they have 140 acres, thirty of which is devoted to fruit culture. In 1889 he was married to Minnie B., daughter of Calvin and Martha Avery, and they have one daughter, Ruth A. Fred Decker has been connected with schools officially, is a member of the Royal Arcanum of Hudson, the Royal Templars of Troy, and with his father and other members of the family is an active supporter of the West Taghkanic M.E. Church, of which he is steward.

Note: George's age is undecipherable, indexed as 4 (born 1866), but appears as two unequal ones with a line between them, connecting the bottom of the first with the top of the second.

George's position before Henry's questions whether Henry is a son of Henry, or some other relative. Whatever age George is, he is not attending school. This is further confused by the listing in the 1870 census with a child Henry G, age 13, being the only child listed.

Stephen was married previously to someone unknown. 1900 Census lists marriage of 21 years, meaning that Lelah was a child of the previous marriage (born abt. 1867). 1900 and 1910 census both list Margaret as having born 1 child, dead by 1910 (William).

It would more appear to read 0 (or maybe 6), but given the location between Nancy (13) and John (8), an age of 10 would be most probable. Age of 6 would be consisted with her age as given in the 1900 census, born Oct. 1863.
