I am so sorry it has taken me so long to respond to your inquiry, but I have been very busy.
John L. Helwig was married twice.Ironically enough, both wives names were Caroline.This was very difficult to determine and it took some time to verify.
The first wife was Caroline Kulo and she died after the birth of their 3rd child, Minnie Caroline.
They had 3 children.John Theodore, Frank and Minnie Caroline.
John L. Helwig then married Caroline Jones, daughter of John Jones. They did not have children together.
John L. Helwig and Caroline Kulo came over from Europe together when son John Theodore was about 4 or 5 years of age.According to family, he remembered their boat ride over here and how everyone on the boat was sick.
Thank your for writting and E-mail me directly for more information.
It is always nice to meet family members. You and my mother are in the same generation.John L. and Caroline Kulo were my GGG grandparents.
