      "FROM THE EFFECTS OF A FALL.—Mr. George W. HELMS died yesterday
      morning at 10:30 o'clock at the residence of his son-in-law, thirteen
      miles north of Columbus, in Harris county. Mr. HELMS had reached the
      ripe old age of eighty two and his death was from the effects of a
      fall which he received on the 15th of October. Five children survive
      him. The funeral will take place at 11 a. m. today and the remains
      will be interred at the Clapp's Factory burying ground. Mr. HELMS
      was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church."

      [Columbus (GA) Daily Enquirer newspaper, Tuesday, 19 APR 1892.]

      Evidently the widower of Louisa J. HELMS. I am still seeking
      information on this couple's background, family connections, and
      children. A death notice appeared on 15 JUN 1901 in the Columbus
      Enquirer-Sun newspaper for George HELMS, age 30, who was killed in a
      factory accident in Columbus. He was survived by a wife and two
      children. His remains were sent for burial to Waverly Hall in Harris
      County, where his brothers and sisters resided. I suspect he is a
      grandson of the above George W. HELMS.

      Any further information would be appreciated – thanks. John in TX.
