We found a note (apparently written by Della) that says her grandparents were Sarah Mallone and John Tompkins. It says that John was born in 1818 and Sarah was born in 1834 (or maybe 1838; that paragraph is hard to decipher).

She divorced Gus and moved to Brownsville Texas, where she married William Neal.
