was only this high' When Annie Scarlett moved into her house
near Pea Green 60 years ago, the cottonwood which now towers
behind her was barely a foot high. She has seen a lot of Delta
history since then and will help make history Saturday as
she participates in the Deltarado Days Parade as the Delta
Centennial Senior Queen.
spotlights Native royalty
at the Deltarado Days Parade Saturday will be treated to two
sets of royalty in the Centennial year procession. Miss Delta
and her attendants, who were crowned Friday night, will reign
over the festivities this weekend and, of course ride in the
parade. (see story page 5). This
year, however, a special pair - dubbed the Delta Centennial
Senior King and Queen - will grace the parade and be honored
as the oldest natives still living in the area.
Delta Centennial Senior King is 98-year old Frank Ryan of
Austin. He was born in Paonia on April 26, 1884, but while
still an infant, moved with his parents to the Surface Creek
area. In fact, the entire Ryan family converged on Delta County
to homestead: Mr. Ryan's great-grandparents are buried at
Cory. Mr. Ryan was a cattleman in the county for many years;
he worked on the Figure 4, the Bar I and 7X ranches. A true
pioneer, he also farmed the valley and mesa country -on Cedar
Mesa, Dry Creek and the Gunnison Valley. In his long, full
life, Mr. Ryan has raised 14 children, five of his own, and
nine step-children. Mr. Ryan's children are: Bill, Walter
and Harry Ryan and Beulah Smith, from his first marriage in
1911 to Emma Turner, and Jerry Ryan, from his marriage in
1934 to Sadie Goodman. Mr. Ryan has enjoyed hunting and fishing
most of his life. The Ryan clan boasts 14 grandchildren, 15
great-grandchildren and 11 great-great-grandchildren.
Scarlett, the Delta Centennial Senior Queen for the 100th
anniversary parade, was born in Delta on Jan 10, 1893. She
has lived in the area her entire life. Although her eyesight
isn't good, she is a spry 89 years old, and still quilts a
good deal. She tends a rose garden, which, according to her
son Clyde, attracts "people from all over who come to get
flowers." She and her sister, 93-year-old Jennie Sumner,
both attended Pea Green School, as did their late brothers
and sisters. Mrs. Sumner and Mrs. Scarlett are neighbors,
both living alone but assisted by a daughter and a son, respectively. The
sisters are the daughters of Haddie [Hattie] Elizabeth and
J.J. Marsh. One sister, Margaret, married the brother of Jennie's
husband, E.L. Sumner. The eldest sibling was Ella Green, the
youngest were the brothers: Joe and Henry. Annie married Harland
Scarlett in 1912. They had three children: Benny, Donna (Moormann)
and Clyde. Mrs. Scarlett is the grandmother of six and the
great-grandmother of 12. Annie
Scarlett was chosen as the Delta Centennial Senior Queen,
even though two other Delta area natives are older. One, 95-year-old
Cecil McKnight, lives at Bethesda care Center and is unable
to take part in the parade. The other is Mrs. Scarlett's sister
Jennie Sumner, who recently suffered a slight stroke. However,
Mrs. Sumner, 93, is feeling much better as of press time Wednesday,
and may still ride in the parade with Senior king and queen.
