I do not descend from this man but my gg grandfather served in his company in the United States war with Mexico. I found his will in the chancery records of Lafayette Co, MS. In his will Delay mentioned that he fought in 3 wars. In the 1830's he fought in Wisconsin, Iowa and Illinois in the Blackhawk War. In the 1840's he was a Captain in the U.S. war with Mexico. In the 1860's he was a Captain in the Confederate Army in the Civil war. He was quite a warrior in his time!
