The book, thank you Laura Lee Moncref for sharing the family letters with us. FROM/TO "Daniel Delph and Margaret to Sary Rimer and Jacob"

THIS even made my very "documented" Cuz' Robert Goode a believer as to his
NEW GRANDFATHER.......just because of the family letters...
I had already shown him that Daniel Delph was living in the same neighborhood, GRAYSON COUNTY, :VIRGINIA, that Jacob/Sarah Rimer were living in for several decades, until Daniel moved to Hawkins :County, TENNESSEE.. and then they too moved to that neighborhood just before her father's death in :Hawkins County, Tennessee.

The only thing about this beautiful book is: she did NOT TRACE my DELPH-RIMER-MANIS family... The book ends for us at the tiny bit of info on Martha Rimer, daughter of Jacob/Sarah Delph-RIMER. Laura mentions on page 55-56 that Martha married Albert Manis, which is correct, and then Laura states, "Martha died January 1893 in Pettis County, Tennessee." (but Laura does not give a hint as to where she obtained this date???) All the other data.. matches exactly what I have found for Jacob/Sarah...

The family letters are the biggest PROOF for our MANIS FAMILY (and the DNA tests are there as well)

I THINK I found the proof to show that Sarah Rimer's maiden name was in deed DELPH.........
Her brother, William P Delph joined same day, same place, same Regiment, same Company AND the same SIDE... Rebel's...
as Isaac Rimer, Isaac would be the son of William's sister Sarah Delph and JACOB RIMER...

William Delph was part of the CSA during the US Civil War. Join: US Civil War Project
