JOHN Q.A. DELANCY is my GG-Grandfather. He was born 1828 Jones County, Mississippi. He married about 1850 to Sara, b.abt 1830. Their children are William b.abt.1850, Sarah E. b.abt.1851, Robert H. b.abt.1855, John J. b.1856, and possibly Charles M. Delaney b.1865 died 7 Jan 1940 in Haywood Co.,Tennessee. I'm not sure where Charles M. fits in but I have a picture of him and he looks a lot like my dad and my grandfather.Photo of Charles M. Delaney.
John Q.A. married again about 1864 to Lucy. Maybe Charles M. is their son. If so, Charles M. and Henry M. are twins because they were both born in 1865. John Q. and Lucy's children are Henry M. b.June 1865, Martha A. b.1869, Samuel Richardson b.7 Dec 1871, James b.1872, Pinkney b.1876, Vinie b. 1879.
WILLIAM DELANCEY is my great-grandfather.I think his middle initial is "C", but I haven't found proof of that yet. About 1870 in Tipton County, Tennessee, he married a Cherekee Indian. The story was that he couldn't pronounce her indian name so he called her "Mary". They have three children that I know of, John born about 1875 in Brighton, Tennessee, William Samuel was born April 7,1881, Lizzie was born April 8,1904. I believe there was an older daughter, Mary Levenia born about 1876 in Munford, Tipton County, Tennessee, who married Thomas J. Forbes.
When William's son, William Samuel, died William had remarried to another woman named Mary. They left Tennessee and went to Houston, Texas. He was too old to make a trip to Tennessee for his son's funeral in 1925. I was told that William lived to be 107 years old.
I have no information about John other than he was born in Brighton, Tennessee.
Lizzie married Marion Perry.They have three children,Franklin, Richard, and a daughter name unknown.

Sarah had three marriages. After William Samuel died, she married Luther Berryhill in 1926 at Tipton County, Tennessee. There were no children with this marriage. In 1936 Sarah married Archie William "Bill" Morris. They divorced and re-married two years later. Bill was born October 14,1884 in Alabama and died December 15,1970 in Wynne, Arkansas and is buried at Johnson Cementary, Fair Oaks, Arkansas. He is the son of Marion Morris of Alabama and a brother to Marion T., Arthur, and Lillie Morris. Bill and Sarah lived in Wynne,Arkansas.
