Re: Benjamin F. Delk of MS
Robert, after seven years, I hope you are still "out there."I think I have information about about Birdie's maiden name.I found a listing for Dorothy Delk Raley, who is buried in the Ripley Memorial Gardens in Lauderdale County, Tennessee. Dorothy's father is listed as Benjamin F. Delk, and her mother, Birdie Porter.Here is the address for the cemetery listing.
My interest in the Delk family stems from Dorothy Delk's marriage to William L. Raley in 1940 in Hillsborough County, Florida.William was a descendant of my great-great grandfather, Benjamin M. Raley,'s brother, Wilson Lumpkin Raley.William's father was Daniel Green Raley.
I have a photograph of Daniel Green Raley's family, including William, his twin sisters, Eula and Eunice, and their sister.I am trying to find Daniel's descendants so that I can give the photo to them.
If you have any information about children that William L. Raley and Dorothy Delk had, (wouldn't they be your first cousins?)please contact me.(Here's hoping you get this message!)
