Inscription:
George W. Delk's sister, Jane Delk, married Zachariah Bird and I believe they all went to Indiana together. Zachariah Bird (#55473534) & his wife Jane Delk Bird (#55473559) are buried at the Elwood Cemetery, Elwood, Madison County, Indiana and I have ""assumed"" that George is also buried there since he was living in Madison County in the 1870 census.
