I don't know anything about the decoy and this is not a direct line of mine but I can help you with his father's name.
Thomas Drayton Thompson was the son of Edmund Blanwell Thompson b. 1842 and died 19 Mar 1930. He was married to Matilda Evans b. 1844 and died 6 Mar 1918.
They are both buried in the cemetery at Poplar Branch Baptist Church in Currituck Co., NC. They are listed on page 210 of the book "Currituck County, North Carolina Cemetery Records."
I hope this helps.
