Louise McLain Shambaugh has that his middle initial is M.

John Decker has born in 1867

Donna Corcoran has his middle name as Ellsworth and Burial: Flint Memorial Cemetary,Mt.Morris Twp.,Genesee Co.,Mich. Cause of death:Pneumonia He was a tall man, over 6', very strong. In his life he had many professions lumberjack, farmer, fisherman, factory worker, and last but far from the least, he was a father, of thirteen children. When they married they bought a 40 acre farm in Edwards Twp, Ogemaw Co., Michigan. He has been described,by his children,as a very gentle giant.They raised 13 children, all seemed to turn out well,I believe they all have very strong oppinions.He even traveled to Minn. to cut lumber,taking wife and 2 oldest children along, and the 3rd was born there, in Grand Marais, Minn.I know he would use his horses and oxen for collatoral to get a loan and pay it off when his crops came in. It is very interesting reading the old papers he kept. He kept logs on almost everything, buying food, going on trips, paying for help, getting paid to help,necessities for the family, everything had a log book. I have inherited a large wooden box, that has so many papers, and little log books, it is fun to look through..
