Things can get confusing when different people have different sources for their info. Much of what I have about Frederick's children I have gotten from other people who posted here or from census info or gleaned from Frederick's pension papers. Sometimes it's hard to read old handwriting and things get mis-transcribed.

I don't have anything about your line that you don't already have, sorry. In fact, you probably have more than I do. I also have very little about my own great grandmother, Clara.

Just out of curiosity, I just went to and looked at the 1880 census for your Deligny family. I found Jane Deligny as the head of household. She is listed as married, not widowed, so perhaps James was just not living at home at the time. It says she was born in Scotland, but that her parents were born in Ireland. She was 29 in 1880 and her occupation was "servant"
They had three children at the time. Sophia aged 4, Frank aged 2 and Charles also aged 2.
They were living in District 2, New Barbadoes, Bergen, New Jersey.
