Re: Joseph Helton (GA, AL) War of 1812 Pension File
I'd like to quote one of your other correspondents:
"Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I had hit a brick wall and didn't know what else to do..."
I have already documented what I know about Joseph and Martha (Mattie) Helton in other posts in this forum. So I can't add much here, other than the facts below. However, now that I have some new directions, I will add whatever I can now find.
Additional facts related to this post:
Blakely or Blakley Eddins is Martha's SIL. He married Elizabeth Helton, fourth daughter of J & M. Martha was living with them by 1880. This is my line.
I had estimated Joseph's death between 1850 & 1855 because he was listed in the 1850 US Census for AL but not listed in the 1855 AL state census.
