Photo: Wilbur Roscoe Decker

Wilbur Roscoe Decker

This photo is of Wilbur Roscoe DECKER, son of Peter W. and Pansy (GILLILAND) DECKER.  It was part of the collection of photos I was able to scan at Mike Walsh's.  Wilbur was a 1st cousin of my maternal grandmother, Bonnie LAMBERTSON.  The photographer's stamp is from Bloomington, Indiana.

The back side of the photograph is a postcard, not mailed but appears to be address to my maternal great uncle, Harold LAMBERTSON.

Left side: Wilbur Roscoe Decker.  Taken Jan. 12 20. Aged 2 years.  
Right side: Master Harold Wayne Lambertson

This photograph would have been taken on his second birthday.  Wilbur Roscoe DECKER was born January 12, 1918 in Springfield, Illinois. He married August 6, 1938 to Mary WEIR, and had at least one daughter, Sharon Sue.  Wilbur died  July 9, 1980.

This is my Great Grandfather! I have been working on some of my family history over the last few years and came across your blog, and has found if very helpful with filling in some of the blanks! Could you put me in contact with the person that has the pictures of Wilbur Decker, I know my Grandmother (his only daughter Sharon) would love to get copies of them! If you could please email me that would be great.
