My Grgrgrgrandfather married Elizabeth Deckard. Her father
and mother were Michael Dechard and Elizabeth Spyker.
Elizabeth was born in Virginia and died in Tenn.
Michael Deckard had Elizabeth, Peter Spyker, and Ellen Decherd. Elizabeth married William, Ellen married Charles
Stewart. Peter Spyker had Elizabeth Spyker.
Peter Spyker was the one I think who sponsored My grgruncle
General Alexander Peter Stewart to West Point. There is a
town named Decherd and Tullahoma in Tennessee named
after our family. Read the Family Ties on Ancestry.com
I have some information somewhere on family that came
here from (Decherds, Spykers, Kiser or Kysers) from Germany to the U.S.A.. Our uncle has a book wrote about
his life in (The Soldiers of Tennessee by:Sam David Elliott)
it is quite interesting. My mother was a Stewart. and Father
was a Robertson. I can trace some of the Dechers back alittle I have been working on it for about 4 years now.
Would love to help if can and email you when I can or you
How are you related.?? We maybe cousins.
Talk to you later Phyllis
