27 Miss Inf
Enlisted at Pascagoula Oct 2 1861
Mr. Valentine (Captain Tucker) Delmas died at the home of his sister, Miss I.K. Delmas on River Front Road. Captain Tucker, as he was familiarly known, had reached the age of 79 years and 9 months, and before the infirmities of advanced age weakened his health, lived a very active life and took part in business and commercial life of Pascagoula.
The funeral was conducted Saturday afternoon with services at the Church of Our Lady of Victories and interment was in Greenwood cemetery. There was a large concourse of relatives in Pascagoula and other Gulf Coast cities who attended the funeral.
Mr. Delmas was a member of one of Pascagoula's oldest families, the second eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. John B. Delmas who reared a family of eleven children, and who have been in the forefront in all phases of life for the good and growth of the city. He served in the Confederate army, and returning to his home engaged in river work, being for years master of a steam tug. He was never married.
Near relatives who survive are Mr. C.H. Delmas, Mr. I.P. Delmas, Mrs. Olivia E. Foster, and Miss Isabella Delmas.
