I am working on a story about Martin Robison Delany,
son of Samuel and Pati Delany. Martin was born in 1812 in Virginia and the
family relocated to Allegheny County, Pennsylvania when he was a child. I
know he had at least one brother, Samuel born 1810.
Martin is a significant historical figure and is about to be honored at
Wlberforce University in Greene County Ohio.
I am looking for anyone connected in any way to these families!
It has not been determined or completely ruled out that they are related to
Sarah and Bessie Delany "Having Our Say" but it has not been ruled out. They
are the daughters of Henry Beard Delany.
Any discussion of this topic is very much of interest to me. I write for the
Dayton Daily News in Dayton, Ohio.
