Hi Cousins,

I recently visited in your county and drove back on several of the creeks. I went by Herman Helton's place and he didn't even feed us supper. (that is a Joke) Herman has a beautiful family and was very hospitable. I didnt catch him at home and finally caught up with Herman down by the court house. WE had run ourselves late and had to drive back to Cleveland TN that evening so we didn't visit a long time. I posted over on the Harlan CO Gen Forum too. Check us out on the Helton Family Gen Forum. We are trying to pull all of the Helton/Hitlon families together from all over the United States. I would love for you to post your family lines and request on there also.

I have found about 120 Cherokee applications and will be posting more of them in the time to come. I am sorry that we didn't find any Cherokee Apps. from your area. However we do believe we have kinfolks living in Leslie Co. Check out the Harlan CO. Gen Forum site to find out more.

Farmer Helton, in Middlesboro has just DNA tested. We should have the results back in about eight weeks. It doesn't require blood just scraping the inside of your jaw. Put it in a bottle (kit is sent to your house in the mail) and send it to Houston. It cost 99.00 and you can tell which branch of Helton's you came from. We could use your help.

Feel free to e mail me at If I don't respond right away I will be on a mission trip to Mexico or to the Navajo Nation. WE have some other cousins that will pick up and help you too. Please send me your line as far back as you can with dates and locations.

Mike Helton
