This codes loops through all the ID's, except the one I wish to identify (the row on which I have selected "Delete").  I need to identify the ID of the row being deleted.  If somone could point the way, I would be very much appreciative.
protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
    {
        string selectedID = "";
        if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
        {
            Button delete = (Button)e.Row.FindControl("delete");
            selectedID = GridView1.DataKeys[e.Row.RowIndex].Value.ToString();
        } 
    }

Placing the following code under the RowDeleting event seems to have solved the issue.

string selectedID = "";
        try { selectedID = GridView1.Rows[Convert.ToInt16(e.RowIndex)].Cells[8].Text; }
        catch { }
