In a book called "Genealogical and family history of the Wyoming and Lackawanna Valleys, Pennsylvania" (Vol 2. pt. 1), I found this excerpt on page 281, which does not mention Charles Decker, but it does mention two places he is known to have been associated with: Port Jervis, where his daughter Delaphina was born in 1897, and Carbondale, precisely the place where Charles was said to have been born in 1862 (or between 1862-1864).
