This website was created from my The Master Genealogist file which included all of Jim's ancestors. Because there is limited Scottish ancestry on his mother's Houston/Hayes lines, and not a large number of collateral lines, I have left it as one large database here. Because many files have been merged and imported from other sources, the sentence structure features, including many "unknown" references sometimes make for awkward reading.

yDNA testing has shown that the Decker Ancestry line ends with Henry St. Clair Decker, yDNA testing has revealed a distant relationship to an individual with the surname of Stokes.  Families of this surname resided in close proximity of Decker families in both Wayne and Cayuga Counties and Stokes infants are buried in the small cemetery on the Decker farm in Montezuma.  An alternative possibility for the parentage of Henry St. Clair Decker is a James Jones. I have included his ancestry in some online DNA charts for comparison purposes. Supporting evidence for this Jones connection is threefold, so more likely than the Stokes connection. First, from DNA proof, Henry Decker's mother was definitely Lucy Bonker Decker, but Henry had a different father than his sister, Lydia Decker Armbruster, who was the biological daughter of Lucy and William Decker. Second, James Jones lived in the Decker houshold as a "hired man" from at least 1900 until his death. His family Bible was found in the attic of the Decker home preserved along with a Bonker Bible. Because James Jones had no siblings who had children, getting a close DNA relative to test, is not possible, but comparison of distant collateral matches show a few with a common Jones ancestor have been found.

Any additions or corrections are always welcome. I only request that any data provided have at least a secondary source that can be included.
