Charles Decker of Peckville, PA c.1915

Updated: Feb 2, 2019

UPDATE 7/14/2018: Another news clipping, from the Scranton Tribune, Sept. 10, 1895, adds more mystery to the Charles Decker of Peckville:

Is this the same Charles Decker of Peckville whose wife died in 1915? They had a son, John Decker, according to this article:

At there is a record of Charles Edgar Decker, who was born 31 Jan 1876 in Mill City, Wyoming County, Pennsylvania, son of Charles Decker and Roseta Avery. He died in Peckville on 19 Sep 1915 and is buried in Prospect Hill Cemetery in Peckville.

I am interested in this Decker family because my ancestor, Charles Gilbert Decker was born in nearby Carbondale around 1864 and I can find nothing about his parents. He supposedly lived in Edwardsville or Edwardsdale, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, around 1891 and married Lydia (Mayo) Ames around 1896.

The following are other Deckers buried in Peckville, all at Prospect Hill Cemetery, which can be found on

If you can add any information to connect this family to the Decker tree, please add it on WikiTree or comment below, with source information, and someone can add it for you.
