A Staten Island, NY man named Sylvanus Simpson DECKER
b ca 1817 in NY
married a woman born in Mississippi named Catherine Ann or Matilda Ann or some combination of names and unknown surname in early 1840s.
They had a son named Leonidas S DECKER born Mar 1843 in Louisiana before moving back north.
Any thoughts on how I might locate the marriage record and birth/baptism record of the son? (They were Methodist-Episcopal.)
