Catchings became Delta City/Descendants of Roy Sylvester

Classification: Query
Delta City was first known as Catchings. Would like more info on when it became Catchings, then Delta City. According to my aunt, Sarah Clark, born and reared in Catchings said the town became Delta City after she married in 1946. Said Lawrence Sylvester, was one of the people who got the town of Catchings. My aunt Ruth Sylvester worked for the County. Roy Sylvester, my great uncle, had and may have married a black woman (I think maybe her name is Elizabeth). Of the Sylvester children (Ruth, Roy, Dewey, Lawrence, Gertrude, Willard) none had children except my grandfather Dewey. We were told Roy had two daughters by this black woman who left the county with her two children after he died in maybe the 30s or 40s. Any help on either of these inquiries?
