Lydia (Mayo) Decker was the mother of Mary (Delaphina) Decker and mother-in-law of William Henry Dickinson. She was born in 1871 in Terry, Bradford County, Pennsylvania.

Lydia married 1st to Halloway Ames, with whom she had one child, Olive Ames, born in 1894. Lydia married 2nd to Charles Decker, with whom she had several children including Iona, Delaphina Decker, Norman G. Decker, Oscar M. Decker, Herbert, Theodore R. Decker, and Harry W. Decker.

Lydia married 3rd to Abram Lott on Nov. 24, 1915 at Warwick, New York.

In 1910 and 1915 when the census were taken, she was widowed, living in Warwick with her sons. In 1920 she was living with her sons again in Warwick, with no trace of Abram Lott.

In 1930 she lived in her son Theodore's home in Hamburg, Sussex County, New Jersey. She was living alone in Hamburg in 1940.

After 1940 no records about Lydia have yet been found.

UPDATE: Thanks to Margaret Jones for notifying me that Lydia's memorial is now on Findagrave! Click here!

Lydia's ancestry has been well documented in "The Family of William H. Dickinson", his wife being Lydia's daughter.
