William H. Delk and John Andrew Delk built homes near that of their family, and resided there with their wives (both daughters of Sandford V. Chandler) and families during the early part of their lives.  Annie & John after marrying lived in a small tenant house on Annie's father's farm near the Ware Place on August Road.  At the end of that year they moved to Ludowici, Georgia.  They lived in another, but larger, tenant house, called the Tile Place, which was part of the W.S. Delk farm.

-J. A. Delk was both Moderator & Chairman of Executive Committe of BAPTIST UNION ASSOCIATION held with  Ella Grove Church in Tattnall Co. GA on Oct 10th, 11th and 12th 1919

Eld. John Andrews Delk, was the son of Mr. and Mrs. W. S. Delk  of Liberty County, GA, and was born August 31, 1880, near Gumbranch, GA, and Gumbranch Church. He grew up in favor with God and man and about the age of 14 years, he joined the Gumbranch Baptist Church, where he lives the life of a consistent Christian Gentleman, and was married to Miss Annie Chandler, of Greenville, S.C. on the 12th day of January 1904. He felt the high and noble calling of Preaching and thus began his ministerial career in 1906. He attended Furman University of Greenville, S.C. endeavoring to provide the necessity of his family and secure the University training in 1908, striving to the extend of great hardships. He then moved to Waycross, GA, and worked for Mr. Baxter, in the furniture business and was religiously connected with the Second Baptist Church of that city and served as Pastor for a while, in an active way. In that city, he was highly esteemed and later moved back to Liberty Co., and settled him a home near the place of his nativity, where he could be near to his aged father in his declining years. He thus lived and strived to the interest of his God, home, and Country. He moved his Church membership to Poplar Baptist Church from Waycross, GA, and on the 24th day of September 1916 he was duly ordained to active spheres of the Ministery: and the Presbytery consisting of Elders O. B. Rustin, and A. V. Barnard of Glennville, GA.

He was called to the Pastorial Care of Ella Grave Baptist Church and served as such one pastorate and supplied the Bragg Baptist Church, in Bryan Co., a short while. To show the esteem in which he was held by his brethen, he was elected to the Moderatorship at the Baptist Union Association in October 1916, and served consequently until October 1920, being four years and declined re-election on the account of his then failing health. He was also a member of the Executive Committee of the above Association for four years. He was also one of the Directors of the Christian Liberator until his decease. He was a man above the average in his community and country in the interest of education, religion, and common morals. He was a man that lived above reproach and suspicion and was very devoted to his family from wife to children. He manifested the greatest of interest in them and in their welfares of life. In 1921, he and his wife and eon moved their Church membership to the Rye-Patch Baptist Church near Ludowici, GA, where his aged father's membership is. In the year of 1917, be was seriously attacked of Pneumonia, and its powerful mastery of his system, from which he never did fully recuperate. It developed into a chronic throat condition, from which he suffered for months. Never-the-less, he worked on under painful circumstances until late in the autumn of 1921 when he was compelled to surrender to the then slow approach of the dreaded messenger of the human mind and carnal temperment to await the execution of the in-evitable fate which is the common lot of all men. Sensible of his having to obey the messenger's command, he related his last testament to his loved ones of his disposition of his earthly goods and the repose of his soon to be life-less body. So on the night of Dec. 28, 1922, about 1 o'clock, the Chief  Shepherd of the Flock, Christ, and God the Father called him from earthly responsibilities to that of  rest-for-evermore. He died the Hero for his Lord and Master.

On December 29, his remains were laid to rest in the Gumbranch Cemetery with Masonic Honors, the same of which he was a faithful member of for quite a number of years. The funeral discourse was delivered by his Pastor Eld. O. B. Rustin, of Glennville, GA, and participated in by the following Ministers, Elders A. V. Barnard of Glennville, Georgia, W. C DeLoach of Willie, Georgia, W. J. Edwards of Willie, Georgia, Chas. Soarboro of Ludowici, Georgia. The Pall Bearers were all Ministers, the same as concured in the funeral procedures; Elders Rustin, Barnard, DeLoach, Edwards, Scarboro, Hodges, and they were all Masons, participating in the ritualistic rites of the Masonic Procedures. Elder Delk is survived by his aged father, Mr. W.S. Delk, his mother having gone on before to the realms of the unknown to moral sensibilities. His other survivors are his beloved wife and five children as follows: sons: Shelton, 17 years, Lucius, 14 years, J.A. Jr. 11 years, David, 3 months, Marion, 2 years,  and one brother, Dr. W. H. Delk, of Greenville, S.C. and sisters as follows; Mrs. J. F. Howard, Lakeland, Fla., Mrs. M. B. McDonald, of Wauchula, Fla., Mrs. J. A. Kirkland, Glennville, Ga., Mrs. D. I. Dawson of Hinesville, GA., and Mrs. J. R. McDonald, of Odum, Ga. The Church and country has lost a good man, earth hath its losses and eternity its gains. To the Bereaved and Survivors we tender our heartfelt condolences, and in the language of the Postees, we pray; "Tarry with, O my Savior lay my head upon thy breast Till thee; then awake me, Morning of eternal rest."

I humbly and lovingly dedicate this memorial to my dear brother and co-laborer in Common Cause of our loving and Ardent Master. His Pastor,  O.B. Rustin, Glennville, Ga.
John A. Delk died 29, Dec.1921, in Liberty co.GA, death certificate -

Ann Theresa CHANDLER

photos and other info

Annie was born 23 Oct 1881 daughter of Sandford Vandiver Chandeler & Hannah Teresa Adair. She died 17 Jan 1975,and was buried at Woodlawn Cemetery on a lot belonging to Marion and Bill Delk. She was of Greenville, S.C. (another source Masons says Pelzer SC)

Because of the many house chores and farm duties, Annie's schooling ended in the fourth grade. Annie was only five years old when her oldest sister, Alice, married at age fifteen. Two and a half years later her second sister, Elizabeth (Sally), married at age fifteen. When Annie was only fourteen years old her third sister, Mamie, married at age twenty. This left Lou Ella and Annie to do most of the work. Lou Ella, Annie's oldest sister, married on December 28, 1899 at age twenty one. Annie was then eighteen years old with four young brothers and her mother needed her help with their care. Not much is known about Annie's teenage life except she developed into an attractive, lovely and likeable young lady. Her husband's father, John Andrew, suffered a stroke, so on her birthday, October 23, 1915, with tears in her eyes, Annie and family moved to Liberty County near her husband's father's farm. In 1920 John Andrews moved the family into a six room house he built on a track of land his father gave him. On December 28, 1921 John Andrews died leaving Annie with five boys - the youngest only three months old. In March of 1922 Annie moved in with her parents near the Ware Place, SC. Five boys were too much for Annie's parents so in the early spring of 1923 Annie sub-rented from Hugh Stone the Putnam farm on Augusta Road. That winter (1923) Annie agreed to buy from her father the house and farm previously owned by her brother Raymond. After two years there, in the winter of 1925 Anne moved to Greenville where she lived for two years, and in 1927 returned to her farm on the Augusta Road. In 1939 Annie sold her farm and on January 1, 1940 she moved into a house at 315 E. Hillcrest Drive. Greenville, Sc. Annie loved that house, the location, the neighbors, and was very happy there. On January 17, 1975 she died. She was 93 years and 3 months old at the time.
