Delia "Deal" was my paternal grandmother and a daughter of Maston "Matthew" Wiley Box and Margaret Elizabeth (Seats) Box.
She had four siblings:
William Jennings (1890-1980)
Maude Odessa (Box) Tucker (1894-1981)
Bertha (Box) Partney (1897-1984)
Thomas Glenster (1899-1989)
Deal married Scott Alcorn on June 3, 1911 and had 9 children: 1 daughter followed by 8 sons (see list below).
She was a member of the Ellsinore Methodist Church for many years, serving as a Sunday School teacher to young children for several of those years.
I was very blessed to have Grandma in my life until I was 27, especially since my other grandma had passed away when I was only 7. As a kid, I always remember Grandma waiting on the front porch, most of the time in her porch swing, waving a hankie and loudly shouting "woooooooo" to us as we pulled up to her home. And oh, that awesome chicken fried in "Lard" and the blackberry cobbler that always awaited us at lunch or dinner. Such wonderful memories of spending time with such a precious and wonderful Grandma!
I have heard that the sewing machine my brother now owns belonged to Nannie Seats (our great-great-aunt) and was used by her to make dresses for nieces Bessie and Laura Seats and our grandmother, Delia, for the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair.
Grandma Deal's paternal grandparents were: Hardy Box and Hester Ann King Box.
Her maternal grandparents were: Benjamin F. Seats and Sarah Elizabeth Dobson Seats.
