Further insight received from Earl Welch on 6/10/2010:

"I want to help you out on two graves sites that you located. They are my half brother Tommy Lee Decker and our grandmother Mary Davis Decker. My mother had Tommy out of wedlock. He died when he was nine months old of pneumonia in my mother's arms, as I was told. He was buried nest to our grandmother Mary Jane."
