Looking for more information on Frederick M. Decosta's parents. Fred was born on 22 Feb 1860 in Maine and d. 26 Nov 1921 in St. Louis, Missouri. He was married to Catherine Fay and they had three children, Frederick, George and John. I believe his mother's name was Amanda Rippey, but that's all I have.

I have the 1900 Census and have all the kids info. if anyone needs it.

Any information on this family would be greatly appreciated :)

Thank You!

I am still looking for information about Frederick M. DeCosta/DeCoster born in Maine on 22 Feb 1860. I am a grandson of Frederick and Catherine (Katie) Fay of queens new york, I am try to find out when they were married and where. Frederick came from Maine, Katie came from new york. They moved to St. Louis MO in June,1890. They had a son Fred E. DeCosta in september, 1890 in St. Louis. They were members of the Second Presbyterian Church (1910) church in st louis. This booklet includes a membership list and a list of pew holders of the Second Presbyterian Church, located at Taylor Avenue and Westminster Place, St. Louis, Mo. Entries in these two lists include church members' names and addresses. The booklet also includes lists of church officers and society members.
I believe that my grandmother katie at some time left and went back to queens, new york to visit. They had a total of seven children, all in st louis. Fred E. died in 1911, the next two died within 2 or 3 months of birth, the fourth one lived a little over a year and then there was Ralph, George, and my father John Tee. Please stop by my tree

Bill, the 1906 Town Register for Paris, Maine (p101) lists Fred H. Decoster as a farmer living in South Paris. Looks like a son Frank E. living in Norway (nextdoor town) with occupation Shoe Shop Operative (there was a shoe manufacturer in Norway) and Deputy Sherriff, and I think Fred's wife Lizzie S.

"Paris, Maine - The Second Hundred Years 1893-1993" shows VRs for 5 DeCostas and 23 Decosters. Among the latter is Frederick H. DeCoster who died January 24, 1934 in Norway, age 82 years, 5 days. Born Greenwood. (I make his birthday January 19, 1852.)

So, not your guy, but maybe a cousin? Worth some time to poke around other Oxford County, Maine town VRs or Genweb forums?
