- "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."

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.
