In Reply to: Albert Marvin Dellis by V.P. of 36

V.P. -- Great info -- I also have those same names of James P.'s children (along with their birth dates), but I also list a couple of other kids: one was a child (the eldest) who died at birth -- a boy; and another daughter named Lula May.

I got this info from a letter that was sent to my dad in 1987. It was from (I believe) Albert Dean Dellis. The letter references a lot of information compiled years earlier by someone named "Glenn." I'm still not exactly sure who "Glenn" is. Anyway, it seems that Glenn became interested in the family tree and asked Albert Dean's Aunt Lillie (Albert Marvin's sister). Aunt Lillie wrote him back with a lot of good information. I have this letter transcribed into a WORD document, so contact me and I'll get you a copy. I also have James Pinkney's lineage for a few more generations back:
James Pinkney Dellis --
(his father was) William Pleasant Dellis (1844 - 1921)
(his father was) John Milton Dellis, Jr. (1822 - 1892)
(his father was) John Milton Dellis, Sr.(abt. 1790 - ? after 1870)

I have a bunch of other names to help fill in the blanks, and I'll post that as soon as I have it all compiled correctly.

I'd be VERY interested in seeing a copy of that bible -- any chance of that? If not, what other dates and names do you have (I don't have any of those death dates or locations for J.P.'s kids)?

Thanks again!
