James Thomas Helm was born July 18, 1844 in Fauquier County, Virginia. When he was a young man of about 12 years of age he moved with his parents and siblings to Carroll County, Missouri. They arrived in Carroll County between March and June of 1860. Family stories says that he was always called Major, probably because of his grandfather, Thomas Helm, military career. Family stories also say he was killed in route to enlist with the Confederate Army. He died on October 29, 1864 and is buried in Wharton Cemetery near Bosworth in Carroll County.

Johanna Eleanor Helm was born November 20, 1848 to Richard Pope Helm and Johanna Smith at Warrenton, Fauquier County, Virginia. She moved with her parents to Carroll County, Missouri in about 1859. She married Benjamin Humphries on December 22, 1867. They had the following children, most were born in Carroll County: Elizabeth E. Humphries, Major Pope Humphries, Benjamin G. Humphries, Virginia M. Humphries, Robert Hale Humphries and George L. Humphries. I am not sure when they moved out of Carroll County, but Joanna died in 1888 at Ragsdale, Fannin, Texas. From a letter in the possession of Hugh Arnold it appears that "Ella" suffered greatly for many weeks prior to her death. It states that she died at half past eight but does not have a day or month, only the year on the postmark.

John G. Helm was born in Carroll County, Missouri to Richard's second wife, Rebecca Collett about 1869. It is believed that he migrated to California to the Sonoma County area and died there about 1920. I did find him and his mother on the 1880 census in Cedar, Dade County, Missouri. The 1900 census does show a John G. Helm in the Cottonwood Township, Yolo County, California, but I am not positive this is him. I cannot find him on the California Death Index so the year of date of 1920 may possibly be correct. Apparently his older siblings lost contact with him, except maybe Emma who also lived in Sonoma County, but her children no nothing about him.
