DECKER & CONRAD: We believe the town of Conrad to be named after my gggrandfather Ezra Conrad who married Rachel King. Their daughter, Clarissa Cora Conrad married my Great Grand- father, Francis George Decker. Francis' father was Charles married to Mary Bailey. Francis had a brother Dolf and sister Annie who married a man with last name Warriner and moved to Wisconsin. Francis and Clarissa had 4 children, Ethel died 2 years of age, buried at cemetery at Bailey Run. Clyde (married Grace Norris), Merrit (married Irene Scribner) and Fay (married Freida Wonner). I cannot find any information from Francis other than his fathers name is Charles, and cannot find any more information on Ezra Conrad, or his father. I do have copies of his civil war records. Please email me if you have any information. Thank You.
