10 - Decker / Meyer or Baker ? - 2GP3

2012 Feb: While in Salt Lake City at RootsTech, at the Family History Library I located the death records for Margaret Decker & her 3 sons (who died in 1893, 1896, 1910, 1930), which provided the following info:
- no parents for Margaret or George; mother of Henry = Martha Meyer, of John = Margaret Baker
- reconfirms Margaret & her parents all born in Germany
- Margaret arrived at age 25 (difference between listed age of 80 & years USA & NY 55)
Listed age of 80 consistent with birth year of 1814 from censuses of 1850, 1870, 1880.
Using 1814 as birth year, then Margaret's arrival at age 25 would be approx. 1839, preceding birth of sons in New York beginning in 1843.

Death record for George lists as widowed, hence no mention of his wife as a Greenwood heir.

2011 ??: From Greenwood cemetery records, which provided the following new info:
- Children Emma & John listed as Greenwood heirs, at death of George; no mention of wife
George age 22, single, living with mother & brothers in 1870 census; not found in 1880 census, & died before 1900 census ... so could have married any time after 1870, and children could have been as old as 25 at his death.

11 - Koester / Bicker ? - 2GP4

2012 Feb: While in Salt Lake City at RootsTech, at the Family History Library I located the 1911 death record for Mary Koester, which provided the following new info:
- father listed as Herman Bicker; mother not included; reconfirms all born in Germany
- Mary arrived at age 17 (difference between listed age of 83 & years USA & NY 66)
Listed age of 83 would mean Mary born in 1827 which only fits with 1910 census, but not earlier censuses of 1880 & 1900 which both indicate that Mary was born in 1841, and husband in 1830.
Using 1841 as birth year, then Mary's arrival at age 17 would be approx. 1858, just preceding birth of daughter Louisa in New York in approx. 1858 also.
