Kanye West and the Delmar Connection
Since Kanye West is back in the news again let me point out a Delmar connection to him. In Donda West book "Raising Kanye Life lessons from the mother of a hip hop Superstar" she talks about Kanye West's grandparents; James Frederick West and Fannie B. Hooks West. At various times in their life they lived in Delmar (James was born in Delmar) . They would eventually move to Wilmington, Delaware. Both would die within one day of one another in 2006. James F. West father and mother were; Virgil Henry west and Estella Elizabeth Selby West who lived in the Delmar area. James and Fannie West son, Raymond, was the father of Kanye West.
