Moses Helms,Hellums VA?>AL>TX -African American
Posted by: Frederick Baston (ID *****5273) Date: February 12, 2009 at 16:28:16
  of 1959

I'm trying to trace back as far as I can concerning my
ancestors.So far I've come up with the name Moses Helms
that was living in Anderson County,TX in 1870.He was 46 at
the time,so he was born in 1823,or 1824.The Census records showed him being from VA,but one other record showed him
being in SC,as well.So I don't know which state he's from,
but it does show that he lived in AL before finally moving to TX.It also listed his wife,Leah Helms as living in Al
before she moved to TX.The problem I'm having is there were
quite a few people named Moses Helms that lived in various
states other than the ones I listed.I don't know if his
given name was after his slavemaster,or someone in his family.If anyone can point me in right direction on where I
should look,would be greatly appreciated.
