Nasby Dellinger was my paternal grandfather.
I have a copy of a newspaper article published on the occasion of his 105th birthday. I have no info on "The Courier" or its publisher, but I suspect from the text that it may be a local bank newsletter (or maybe not). No publishing date is shown on the page, which is from a photostat copy of the original. I can send you this as an attachment if you reply with a valid email address. I tried sending it to you at "email@example.com" but I received a response that it was not you.
I am not certain which of Nasby's three wives was my grandmother. His second wifw was the sister of the first, whom he married after the first passed. He outlived all three wives, and he reportedly said after the third passed, "I'll never get married again... they always die on you."
One of his sons, Raymond Marcellus Dellinger (now deceased), was my father. He (RMD) married my mother, nee Gladys Oburn Morgan.
They had three children, as follows:
1) Rachel Ann Dellinger (b. 1935), who married Donald Alfred Henney of Camden, NJ, and they had two sons, Donald Alfred Henney, Jr., and Darren Jaye Henney. They had no daughters. My sister Rachel is now deceased, as is her husband.
2) Raymond Marcellus Dellinger. Jr. (b. 1939, never married, no known children), who happens to be 'yours truly'.
3) Wesley Evans Dellinger (b. 1941, living), who was named after John Wesley, founder of the Wesleyan Methodist Church denomination. He married twice, and had no sons to carry on his (our) name. He had several daughters by his first and second marriages. He remains alive as of now.
My parents were divorced, and my father remarried a woman named Mamie, and had a second family. I don't know how many children they had, or any of their names.
My father (RMD) had several siblings. It was long ago, and I don't remember all their names... but some of the following of my aunts and uncles may be his sibs, or else related through marriage to his sibs -- Carl (or Karl), Lillie (or Lily), Ada, and Nanny (or Nannie). The names of Uncle Curtis and Aunt Jettie also come to mind, but I don't know if they were my father's sibs or related by marriage.
I have more info among my possessions, but it will be very hard to find, and will take time.
I hope this helps. Feel free to inquire further, and I'll help if I can.
Raymond Marcellus Dellinger, Jr.
