My name is Lilla Williams. I was browsing this site when I came upon this question. Nettie or Janette Cedars is my Great grandmother. Her daughter Callie Delrie married Fred Mitcham. THey are both buried in Gorum Cemetery.
To answer your question, yes, Great grandmother Janette was married to Sylvester Delrie. My grandma Mitcham told me many times her last name used to be pronounced Del Rio, and that they originated from Spain. She also said that long ago they had lived in Del Rio Texas before coming into Louisiana. I would really love to know if this is a fact. Where did they really come from, and did they really come into North America during the time of the Spanish explorers, as my grandmother told me several times over the years. Hope this helps a little.

Sincerely, Lilla Miller Williams
