In reference to: "I am looking for information on John Helton (married to Barbary) in the mid 1800's. They had at lest 2 sons, John W. and Sanford (born 1872), possibly in Kansas."
My maiden name is Helton. Can you give more details on John? Did he have brothers and sisters? How about his mother and dad?
I believe there were a couple of John Helton's permeating the Helton tree. Most of what I am finding are from the midwest states.
Thanks, Ava Helton-Conner (firstname.lastname@example.org)
