Bio and Links
Bio Photo In June 2008, I retired as the administrator of the Delta Cemetery in Delta, Colorado. The information I am entering is from the cemetery records and the headstones. Please feel free to contact me with additional information or corrections, as I will continue to update the records for the Delta Cemetery. I am, of course, happy to transfer management of any of the memorials I have created to descendents who meet the Find A Grave guidelines for transfer.

My current project is to take pictures of as many headstones in the Delta Cemetery as I am able to, beginning with the older sections. I have finished photographing and posting to Blocks 1, 2, 3, 5 and 9. If you find a memorial for someone buried in any of those five Blocks but there is no headstone picture attached, it probably means the grave is unmarked. However, I will be glad to double check, if you will contact me.

I have also finished photographing Blocks 8, 10 and 12, and have posted all those pictures. I am currently photographing in Block 11 and am posting those pictures as I go.

Of course, I am happy to respond to requests for pictures of headstones anywhere in the Delta Cemetery.

Names I am researching in my own family tree include Phillips, Bingham, Douglas, Baker, Wire, Shoesmith, Williams, Laux, Schwarm, Hicks and Griffith. I would love to hear from anyone who may be related to me!

RE: Nettie Mae Hampton James
Hi Lynn,
I understand your concern.

Here is the explanation. Mary James Morris' father, Thomas Llewelyn James, was married twice. Thomas married his first wife was Nettie May Hampton in 1902. She died in 1906 with the birth of their second child Ruth. Ruth survived the birth and lived till 1978. After Nettie's death Thomas remarried to Lucy May Hafford in 1908. They had three children; Gomer, Gwendolyn and Lucy.

Mary James Morris was born in 1903, making her the first child of Thomas Llewelyn James and his first wife Nettie May Hampton.

Your assistance in this regard is very much appreciated.

Lyle Vernon Prior
Would you allow me to copy a photo you took of my relative's grave marker to be used on It would clear up a lot of confusion about his birthdate. His memorial #24235432. Thank you. Juana Manzana

Mary E. Reed
Thank you for all of the work that you have done in Find a Grave for Delta Cemetery.

You have Mary E. Reed in block 5, lot 317, and space 1. I am wondering if her husband might be next to her or in the lot - John Reed died in 1924. John Reed is my great grandfather's brother and no one has been able to find his burial.

Since you have went through Block 5 taking pictures of tombstones, I am assuming that there is no tombstone for Mary Ellen Reed.

Thank you very much for all of your work.

Sam Guinn and Pearl Myrtle Lee
Thank you for linking this couple. I know that Pearl had two prior marriages and that Sam also was previously married to Bertha whose last name is unknown to me at this time. If I can find reliable sources for those prior marriages, I'll use the suggested edit feature to request more links. I'm fairly certain that these two married rather late in life, but I've yet to find their marriage record.

Marion L. Burbridge - part 2
Hi Lynn,
I forgot to tell you that Marion's father is Charles William Burbridge, SR. His # is 17392011. If you could please link him to Charles, that would be great. He's the only sibling we are missing in our family group.

Marion L. Burbridge
Hi Lynn,
My dad's (Loyd Burbridge) brother, Marion Lafayette Burbridge (#17392036) is buried in Delta Cemetery. His grave is in a different area than the rest of the family and I somehow overlooked his memorial. Here's some of the information that is missing from his memorial:
Born: 9/30/10 in Pea Green corner (Montrose), CO
Died: 12/4/11 in Montrose (Montrose), CO

Thanks for all you do.
