There are TWO Find-A-Grave memorials to Rev Jacob Deckard, Sr.

Find-A-Grave memoriall #43305704, written by Sanders, is comparatively short. Find-A-Grave memorial #65270621, posted by WDK, consists of a fifteen page essay written by Ronald E. Deckard, who provides exhaustive documentation for his claims.

Anyone using the Find-A-Grave documentation should take particular care to get the right wife if they wish to cite her as the mother of Rev. Johannes Jacob Deckard II's children. Within the body of text, Find-A-Grave cites Mary Elizabeth Vance as his wife, and this woman was the mother of his children.

However Find-A-Grave gives only a SINGLE link to a spouse, and that single link is to Sara Elizabeth Kinser Deckard. This woman was married to Rev. Deckard in old age, and she bore NONE of his children. ALL of HER fourteen children were the product of a union with a different man.
