Delila Stephens

DELILA STEPHENS, daughter of Jeremiah W. P. Stephens and Sarah Sallie Meeks, was born about 1836 in Emanuel Co., GA and died sometime after 1870, likely in GA.

There is little information about Delia. It is unknown if she ever married. In the 1850 and 1860 Federal Census, she is single and living with her parents. In the 1870 Federal Census, at age 34 she is still single and living with her mother Sallie, who is now a widow.

There are no records for Delia after the 1870 census. Some researchers have recorded her death date as 28 Dec 1916, but have not supplied any research citations that confirm this date.

In a cemetery transcript submitted by Rebecca Stephens McNeal to the USGenWeb Archives, we know there is a Delila Stephens buried in the Stephens Cemetery, Johnson Co., GA with inscription "Mother Born Feb. 6, 1835 Died De. 28, 1916." Could this be the same Delia? If so, was she ever married? Who were her children?
