    Hi Brian,

    I am not sure how you and I are related, but I came across this site as I was researching my maternal grandmother Virginia Lee Delk who lived in Iowa and was married to Everett Wayne Lyon. They had children, 4 who were James Lyon, Dan,Tom, and Elizabeth Ann Lyon, who is my mother. I am interested in learning all that I can about my family history. Please help me to put the puzzle pieces together. Thank you for any help you can be and for just taking the time to read this.


  • Brian says:


    I will gladly help you with your efforts. Virginia is my father’s sister, making your mother my first cousin, however, she and I are about 20 years apart. Feel free to contact me at delkbrian@earthlink.net with any questions.

    Hello Delk cousins who are also of Maitlen descent.

    Hoping to find other Maitlen descendants interested in autosomal DNA testing. Unlike Y DNA which gets passed from father-to-son and is most easily connected to a specific surname, or mtDNA which gets passed from mother to child, we inherit our autosomal DNA from both parents and their ancestors. Unfortunately due to randomness of recombination, the DNA share with relatives drop off relatively quickly, but with enough of them can garner some very useful information. Would suggest testing with 23andMe if interested and happy to share what I can and answer any questions.

    I just wanted to make contact about your Bullock photos, and to find out if you have any others? I was quite pleasantly surprised to find the photos, and also wanted to say thank you.
    My ties to the Bullock family are through my husband’s maternal line. Oddly enough, I grew up living across the street from a Delk family in Luling Louisiana (Kenneth and Caroline Delk, children Stevie and Amy Delk).
    Thank you for your wonderful site, I wish I knew how to do this, I like the layout!

    My great grandfather was Samuel Joseph Darnell he was married to Angelina Delk. They married in Bamberg, South Carolina. He passed in1930. She remarried in 1933 to a Hutto. Could we have any connection?

    is Jordan Delk b 1756 in your tree?

  • Brian says:

    I am just getting back onto this site, and trying to play catch up. Jordan Delk would be a cousin to Ethelred, I think. I am looking at your page on Ancestry.com, I am curious, was Joseph Delk adopted?

  • Brian says:

    So I am three plus years late in getting back to you, my apologies. Looking at your family tree on Ancestry.com, it appears that Angelina was a descendent of Kindred Delk, I think. Kindred was a descendent of the first Roger Delk, so more then likely we are connected.

    Hi Brian trying to contact you. this is Charlea my email is Charleahr@aol.com

  • Angela Phillips says:

    Jordan Delk was adopted or took this name as an adult. His YDNA is EM2 and does not match descendents of Roger Delk. All Delks in East TN will relate to Jordan Delk.
