About Celista Hanson (Deckard)
Find-A-Grave memorial 74192666.
The current information used for this profile comes from Find-A-Grave. The profile was previously for a "Salesta Deckard", b. Sept 20, 1875, Brown County, IN, USA, d. March 19, 1908, Monroe County, IN, USA, buried at Clear Creek Cemetery, Clear Creek, Monroe County, USA. The similarities of "Salesta Deckard" to our Celista Hanson (Deckard) were so pronounced that we have combined profiles while retaining the old information in this note.
Both "Celista" and "Salesta" were the wife of Charles Hanson; for better or worse, we have used the spelling that appears (and the dates that appear) on her tombstone. The date of death is especially problematic. The tombstone says 1907. An obituary written March 21, 1908 says Celista died "early this morning". The date of death given prior to merging profiles was March 19,1908. For better or worse, we have used 1907 as Celista's "official" date of death because it is the date that will be needed to retrieve information from external sources, but one should be aware that conflicting information exists for the actual date of death.
