Age 75 years and 8 days. He had been in failing health for the past eight months, but bore his suffering bravely, always meeting his family and friends with a smile. He was one of a family of thirteen children of Richard P. and Eleanor Smith Helm, and of this family three brothers, Richard H. of the home address, Lina P. of Wewoka, Oklahoma; and George W. of Albequerque, New Mexico and one sister, Mrs. Emma Foster of Petaluma, California survive him.& On March 14th, 1885 he was united in marriage to Mary Ann Kerby and to this union six children were born: Elmer L; WIlliam R; Uriel A; Albert S; and Mrs. Pearl Slater, all of the home address and Casper K. of Kansas City, Mo. all of whom survive him, with his wife, together with eight grand children.

On the pages of history we write the names of these, who perhaps just one deed, just one act of outstanding achievement, entitles them to live in the records of our nation. Winning a battle does not make a nation great. Giving to the nation an invention also plays a minor part in marking our country a leader in the affairs of the world. We must give our great leaders in all past generations due credit for their fine service. But the next (millions) whose names are not preserved by recorded history and their graves are unmarked, must be given honored placers when an invoice is taken. Plans and ystem of living are presented by a few, but they must be observed and practiced by the citizenship if they are to be beneficial. Henry Helm belonged to that great majority who by giving their support and influence to the instutions which made America the greatist nation in the world. The home is our greatest institution, Edgar A. Grant says "It takes a heap of living to make a home.". Mr. Helm establisted the kind of home Mr. Grant speaks of in this beautiful poem. A home isn't just the future we live in with our family. Thats just the heart of the home. A home is not restricted to walls and floors, but it extends our in all directions until it covers the entire community. Yes, it takes a heap of living to make a home. Just a home in, a selfish sense, but it takes a heap, and a heap of living to make a community home. That's the kind of home Mrs. Helm maintanined and that the kind of homes which sustain our nation in wars and depressions. Mr. Helm lived his years remarkably well and has received a honorable discharge. Interment was in the Wharton Cemetery.
