You know, cousin Brenda... all you had to do was ask.
Delilah (also referred to as "Lila"), born about 1858, was the daughter Delaware Beverly. The Beverly & Pin/Pen families out of Amherst, were "Monacan Indian".
The record only show her mother as "C. Beverly". Delilah married Reuben Hughes in or about in/about 1874 (before black/mulattos) were listed by race, at the courthouse.
The 1870 census show Delilah (listed as white)residing with her brother Lafayette Beverly, and his wife.

Reuben and Delilah had 4 known chillins. They were: Charles Henry, Hannah, Mildred, and Mary Magdeline. These children married into the "Strange, Giles, Diggs, and Durrett" families, to name a few.
Robert Ross appears to be a nephew.
