(notes: The marriage information initially came from the Berlin Journal of November 7, 1878. They were married in Waterloo by the 'Hon. Williams' of Berlin. The article records her name as Delight Buckborough.

His parents are Samuel and Christina Fellman. The bride is Elizabeth Delight Buckberrough (as spelled), age 25, of Waterloo. Her place of birth is said to be Preston. Her parents are shown as Daniel and Elizabeth Buckberrough. The witnesses are Ezra Fellman and Annie Taylor, apparently both of Waterloo. The place of marriage was Waterloo.

Clerks' handwriting on the various registrations is frequently sloppyand illegible. The clerk in this case is not named, but the handwriting is beautiful.).1
She married Richard Hobbs on 7 October 1890 at Berlin, Waterloo County, Ontario. (notes: 012155-90 Berlin, Waterloo Co. 7 Oct. 1890. Richard Hobbs, 37, clergyman, widower, residing Tillsonburg, born England, parents James Hobbs and Mary Saunders. Elizabeth Delight Fellman, 37, widow, residing Berlin, born Canada. Parents Daniel Buckberrough and Eliza Taylor. Witnesses Helen Buckberrough, Waterloo, and F.C. Howell, Berlin. Both bride and groom were Methodists. Clergyman Rev. J. E. Howell.).1 She died on 18 January 1922 at Toronto, York County, Ontario, at age 68.1 She was buried on 21 January 1922 at Mt Hope Cemetery, Waterloo, Ontario.1 Information for Jacob and Delight's death years comes from a transcription of Mt. Hope Cemetery, Kitchener.

Death Reg. for Delight: 001287-22 Toronto, York Co. January 18, 1922.Hobbs, Elizabeth Delight, 71 Regal Rd., 68 yrs., 4 mos. Born Troy, Ontario, August 13, 1853. Father Daniel Buckborrough, born Troy, Ontario, mother Eliza Taylor, born Ontario. Informant Dr. Snell, relation daughter (?), 71 Regal Rd.

Delight's death registration places her birth in Troy. The registration for her marriage to Jacob Fellman places her birth in Preston. Since this is information that she would have given, Preston is likely correct.1
