HELM & BLACK // Brown & Doniphan Cos

Helm and Black // Brown and Doniphan Cos

I'm looking for some Helm and Black
family members who appear in county
records about 1910.


In May 1908 in an obituary in Sidney, Champaign Co IL, "Mr and Mrs G W Helm
of Hiawatha KS" are mentioned. George
Helm was originally of Champaign Co
but disappears in the 1880's.

A 1950's family researcher identified this
Mrs Helm as Jessie Fremont Black. We
don't know how he knew that (or if he
really knew that ;^).

On the 1910 census of Doniphan Co,
Denton, Union TWP is
Helm, Geo W age 54
Jessie (w, 39)
and children
Leela (22 or 23), John M (20),
Marie (19), James A (12)
and brother in law C M Black (53),
a widower.

(George's father was James Helm,
and Jessie's father might have been
John F Black.)

They are renters.

There are some problems with the bio.
information in the rest of the census
listing but most of it has the right
stuff (Illinois origins).

I haven't found them in the 1920 census.

Obviously a good circumstantial match.
Any help appreciated finding traces of
these folks.
