I'm researching the 1940-1950 diaries of my great-aunt Mina Smith Deline, whose only child Helen married your Pearl Brazee's brother Herald. Herald & Pearl farmed near each other during these diaries & Pearl and Ruby are mentioned frequently, as is your father Hurlan, and his siblings Opal, Jean & Charles.
I was surprised to read in your post that your great-grandfather Herlan's wife was named Milly Deline. That would explain completely why H.J. Grattan hosted the Deline Reunion on 8 Aug 1946, something that had puzzled me.
My great-aunt Mina's husband was Elmer Deline, the son of Sarah Burt & George Deline. Sarah & George had two children who died as babies and then Eliza Jane who married a Grattan & had children Leo E. Otis R., Harlan, & Lottie, assuming I haven't made a mistake, as this information is relatively new to me.
I would be delighted to exchange information with you!
