I do not know who the reservoir is named for but I do know the William served in the Revolutionary War. Nicholas Delafield b 1720 in England and died April 1785 in Mecklenberg County, Virginia was the father of William. Thomas Delafield b July 4, 1690 in Great Haseley, Oxfordshire, England and died August 17, 1775 in Great Haseley is Nicholas' father. There is a historical marker honoring William Delafield as a patriot in the Lagrone Cemetery near Hallsville, Texas. He is also listed in the Roster of Texas Daughters Revolutionary Ancestors. There is also a book "dDelafield - The Family History" by Brigadere General John Ross Delafield. Maybe some of this will help you. Johanne
