Notes for Jacob DECKER

1829 Birthdate:2471 Birth year of 1829 estimated based on age (41 years) in 1870 census enumeration. Birth place of Bavaria given in same enumeration.

1867 Marriage:996 Marriage of Jacob Decker and Katharine Kluepfel in Dayton, Montgomery County, Ohio on 12 December 1867.

Research assumptions based on 1870 and 1880 census; use with caution:
1) Katharina, age 26 in 1870, was the wife of Jacob Decker, supported by 1867 Montgomery County marriage record.
2) Elizabeth, age 21 in 1870, was not the daughter of Katharina, but rather Jacob's daughter, based on the 1880 census. She was disabled in some way.
3) Magdalina, age 51 in 1880, was not the mother of either Elizabeth and or Gustaf / Augustus, based on an analysis of their relative ages and the presence of Katharina along with the two year old Gustaf in 1870.
4) It is likely but not proven that Katharina died between 1870 and 1880.
