Query: John and Diana (Reilly) Decker, Knox County, Indiana

I am looking for any information on John and Diana Decker. Her surname was Reilly from a previous marriage – she was widowed and she was originally a Decker as well, and especially their children. John was born on February 17, 1791 and died on May 4, 1874. Diana was born on April 24, 1802 and died on December 12, 1858. They were married on October 11, 1821. They had a child named Asa Decker in 1821, who I am a descendant of. He left Knox County around 1840. I believe John Decker was a politician, a sheriff of Knox County in the 1820s, and fought in the War of 1812. He and Diana are buried in West Salem Cemetery. I have the will of Luke Decker (his father) and John is listed as an heir and as an executor. Luke Decker was a pioneer of Indiana, a founder of Vincennes and Vincennes University. Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
