Captain Delmas was born on November 29th, 1849 and was a life long resident of Pascagoula. He was a son of Mr. and Mrs., John B. Delmas, both members of the pioneer Delmas and Grant families of South Mississippi ....
Though too young to serve in the Confederate army during the war of 1861-65, he performed a man's part by the service he rendered the town in driving to and from Mobile for the purpose of bringing provisions to the community when no other means of communication was available, and with no assistance or companion except that of his pet dog, a perilous undertaking for experienced men even, during those troublous days....
He was married to Miss Eugenia LeFavre of Mobile, who died some eighteen years past.... He is survived by three brothers, Messrs. Irving P. Delmas, Valentine and C. H. Delmas, two sisters, Mrs. E. O. Foster and Miss Isabella Delmas....Pallbearers were the following six nephews of Captain Delmas: Messrs. Morris Jonte, Charles Foster of Biloxi, Albert L., Francis H., Lee A., and Harold J. Delmas.
