Cemetery is next to private easement for W.L. London, who reports that nobody seems to know which family this person belongs to; a barbed wire fence had formerly enclosed the cemetery and posts are still evident, along with rusty barbed wire. Families currently in the area seem to want to preserve it and keep it at least roughly cleaned out.

A total of 7 headstones with only one inscribed is for Delila D. Johnson so cemetery is named for her.

Several of the other 6 graves in this cemetery may belong to the infants or young children she had with her husband, Joseph Josiah Johnson, before her death.
