Delphus Bledsoe

Springs Valley Herald 
June 6, 1929

Delphus Bledsoe, son of Louis and Lorinda Bledsoe, was born in Orange County, Indiana on July 5, 1876. He departed this life May 28, 1929. Age 52 years, 10 months and 23 days.
He was deprived of his father by death in his early youth. He was one in a family of nine children, and his mother being unable to support them he was taken to live with foster parents, Dr. Ellis of Unionville, Indiana. It was there he spent the greater part of his childhood. It was then those who knew him say he developed the sunny smile and good disposition that he has kept ever through life.
On August 13, 1896 he was united in marriage with Mary E. Buck to which union was born six children.
At the age of 27 years he united with the United Brethren Church at Red Quarry. He has long been a member of the Masonic and Modern Woodman Orders.
In his last days living in the grip of an ill fated condition to which he so nobly committed himself, he had expressed his willingness to go.
He leaves to mourn his loss a wife, Mary E.; three sons, Paul, Louis and Russell; three daughters, Mrs. H. T. Wright of French Lick, Juanita and Ruth at home; a mother, Lorinda of West Baden; three brothers, Organ of West Baden, Otto and Dolphus of Vincennes, Indiana; two sisters, Mrs. John Condra and Oma of West Baden; four grandchildren, nephews and nieces, and a host of other relatives and friends.
