Delahays in Texas

Delahays in Texas

Surnames: Delahay
My G-Father, Benjamin Thomas Delahay, moved from Baltimore (or environs) to Texas, where he married Stella Hornbeak of Corsicana, Navarro County. I have no dates, but probably in early 19-teens.

My understanding is that he was either a mail man or a cabinet maker (perhaps the cabinet maker was His father). He later served as Sunday School Superintendant in the Presbyterian church in Corsicana.

They had four children, (S) Wlliam Allen, (D) Jean, (S) Benjamin Thomas (my father, b 06 May, 1918), & (D) Dorothy.

Does anyone in the Maryland area know of this sprig of the tree?

What about the naming convention, i.e. 2nd son named after father, 1st son named after . . . uncle? g-father?

I just found out from (Genealogy Info)that my grandfather's middle name was apparently not Thomas, as the death of a Benjamin J. Delahay was recorded in Navarro County on 15 April, 1951. J. for John, perhaps? James?

I have information that be of some value to you. In 1983 I got a list of Delahay's living in the US to try to find connections. One of the people that I contacted was your uncle William A Delahay. He was a retired USAF Col. living in Sequin, TX. at the time. He sent me information on his ancestry back to his GGrandfather. Your uncle was born March ,1914 so your Gfather was likely married 1913 or before. I have all this information in my files including three pages from a family Bible that one of his sisters had in her possession. I presume that your uncle has died since I contacted him in 1983. If you want the material that your uncle sent to me I will gladly send it to you . Don Delahay
