Leesville in Saluda County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Delmar School was established in 1896 on property obtained from Elijah Wilson & Lula Fulmer Shealy. This property was previously owned by his parents, Mary Ann Gorley & Simeon Richard Shealy. A Confederate soldier who died during the war, Richard had purchased the land from his father, Mathias Shealy, who married first Polly Fulmer and second Barbara Risinger. Mathias is buried in the family plot located .3 mile southwest of this site. The Mt. Hebron Lutheran Church Cemetery, located .1 mile south was also part of this tract. The cemetery was begun in 1901 when Elijah & Lula Shealy buried their child, Wyman, in a cornfield adjacent to the church. Numerous students of Delmar School and many members of the Mt. Hebron Lutheran Church are descendants of Mathias Shealy.
Erected by Grandchildren of Elijah and Lula Shealy.
