- Jerome Delaney (1825 Acaun, Rathvilly - 1912 Dayton, Ohio,
USA, son of Denis Delany and Ellen Cummins) married Rathvilly 1852 Mary
Ann Quinn and immigrated to the United States shortly after their
marriage. They lived initially in Jersey City, New Jersey where their
son Denis was born. Jerome enlisted in the American Civil War from
Jersey City in 1861, and served for three months, seeing action and
being disabled from a gunshot wound during battle. At some time Denis
died, and the next record of Jerome and Mary, I believe, is the U.S.

Spadra. There is no evidence that Jerome had any more children.
According to his Veterans' Administration records, he lived in Tuskahoma
in the Indian Territory that would later become the state of Oklahoma
just prior to his entry to the 'National Disabled Veterans' Home in
Dayton, Ohio in 1899, where he lived until his death, and he is buried
in the National Cemetery there. ~ Sue Clement
