Hunting Party

This picture was taken at Beaver Meadow in Chenango County in October, 1904. They were deer hunting and the tent behind them is where they stayed. On one morning they killed 10 deer. The one on the far right is my Grandfather, William Ezra Decker, and I do not know who the others are. It would be interesting to know who the others are. William, or Ezra, as he was called was a Contractor in New Berlin and built some of the bridges. His wife was Mabel Sophia Aylesworth Decker.


My mother wrote on this, Meyers Boys. Taken about 1930s in New Berlin. The dog, Rinte, belonged to my father, but everyone in town thought they owned him.
