Judy, Here is an excerpt that might help:
George Delius born 4/10/1838 died in 1914. He came from Austria at the age of 14. He came to America to learn from his uncle in Anahiem, CA, how to work the vineyards and to work in his uncle's winery.
While working there the Civil War broke out. He left to join the Union and fought down to Mobile Bay. He was severely wounded and presumed dead. After being placed in a room with others to be buried he came to, but couldn't speak or walk. He finally managed to crawl out to where the guards were. When they saw him it frightened them so they ran.
After the Civil War he worked and traveled. He came to Scranton (New Pascagoula) and met Isabelle Southern. Daughter of Charles and Lucinda Southern.
Lucinda was a widow and after the war she remarried William Henry Savage. She had six children by Southern and four by Savage.
Eldest daughter Isabelle, born 3/14/1848 married George Delius Jan 1, 1869. They had 10 children - 7 girls, 3 boys. children were: Agnes Castona, Bertha Nelson, Hattie Chastant, Katherine (Katie) Lindner, Lelia Olson, Pauline Olson, Edna Skousgard, Otto, George and Alfred Delius.

I hopes this helps a little there is more to this article and if you are interested I will send the rest.
Take care and God Bless, Anita Delius Mock
