Hello Cousin ALPHA! I am the granddaughter of Minnie Belle Helton, daughter of Jackson Helton and Rachel Fallis. I have heard the same stories about Lewis being an Indian Scout (Union Side) in the civil war and the long black braids and the bounty land in Florida that he was eligible for. I heard that he and Jackson used to glare across the front porch at each other when the family came to visit. Jackson was Confederate soldier. Jackson's death certificate says Miles Helton and Rhoda Ray were his parents. When you find those pictures, I would sure like to see them. E-mail me when you can.
