Hi Diane, I noticed that there is a Jerusha A. Bright in the 1880 census of Troy, Gilmer, West Virginia. It occurred to me that her name may have been Adelia rather than just Delia, and it might have been her middle name. It is so tricky looking for women, and sometimes both men and women switched from a first name to a middle name or a nickname at different times in their lives. I am a Bright and had ancestors in W. V.(Elcana Bright 1769 DE-1839 WV) but I am unfamiliar with the Ezariah Bright who is the father of this girl. Good luck. Cerelle
