I am trying to find information on my great,great,great grandfather, James Helmer. He lived in Hartford, Washington co., Wisconsin. He died in 1880, don't know his date of birth. His son, AlvaF.Helmer, moved to Pierce co. Wisconsin, after the civil war. Alva married Lucy Ewers. Alva's descendents have lived in Pierce co. for 4 generations.I am one of them.Alva had a brother James Jr., who served in the Civil war with Alva. I know Alva had at least two sisters, but haven't identified their names. Does any one know wherethe Wisconsin branch of Helmers fits into the geneological scheme of things? Any help would be appreciated.
