Valentin, son of Paul Dellinger and Clara his wife, was born and baptized 15 February 1709 at Oberacker, present-day Baden-Württemberg, Germany.
Spouse 1: married 19 July 1735 in Oberacker, Germany, to Maria Magdalena (Schäfer) Ehemann, widow of Michael Ehemann.
Spouse 2: married 7 May 1748 in Oberacker, Germany, to Magdalena (née –?–) Weller, widow of Elias Weller.
Spouse 3: Eve (née –?–), presumably married after Valentin's 1749 arrival in America.
Maria Magdalena Dellinger born 22 June 1737, buried 6 May 1738 in Oberacker, Germany.
Martin Dellinger, born 18 March 1739, remained in Germany.
Johann Michael Dellinger, born 10 June 1742, remained in Germany.
Catherina Dellinger born 26 June 1745, buried 30 May 1749 in Oberacker, Germany.
Johann Frederick Dellinger was born 4 February 1749 in Oberacker, Germany. No further record for this child has been discovered.
Valentin Dellinger arrived at the Port of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on the ship Christian. He signed the oath of abjuration at the Philadelphia Town Hall on 13 September 1749 in German script as Veltin Dellinger. His handwriting agrees with his signature on his 1766 will.
Valentin's brother, Martin Dellinger, entered a claim in April 1752 for 200 acres in Anson County, North Carolina. The 1752 land entry establishes that Martin was in North Carolina prior to that date and implies that Valentin also was there by then.
Capt. Samuel Cobrin's 1756 Anson County militia company roster includes Pvt. "Felty Taliner." Militia law research in 2003 established the 1756 date of Cobrin's roster. Earlier conjectures that it dates 1748 are incorrect.
On 21 April 1764, Valentine Dellinger obtained a warrant for survey of his claim of 200 acres in Mecklenburg County "On Both sides of Leepers Creek – Including his Own Improvements." The survey established only 150 acres were vacant. Valentine's grant for 150 acres was issued on 6 April 1765.
