I have notes from my Fathers papers giving me information that his Mother, Annie Christina HELTON, my GMother was borned in Texas. Her father was Peter Joseph HELTON, b.1844. wife was Elizabeth Unknown, m.1878. His year of immigration was 1863 from Germany. Does anyone information on Peter Joseph HELTON and have ship records for ports along the Gulf coast for this period where he would have arrived in this County. Please e-mail me with any help. Thank you. I am Charles J. Almond in North Carolina.
