I am researching the HELTON surname in NC,TN,and MO. John HELTON of Sevierville, Sevier Co., TN married Ruth JOINER. Children could include Jane (b. 1833), Walter (b. 1835), Fannie (b. 1837), Mary Elizabeth (b. 1843), Adeline (b. 1844), Rufus (b. 1846), John (b.1849), Levi (b. ?), Jack (b. ?), Mary (b. ?)
Mary Elizabeth married Leroy Levi COBB, settled and raised a family in Pulaski Co., MO
It is believed that John was a sibling of Frances "Fannie" HELTON who married James COBB of Lincoln Co., NC, February 3, 1838.
Any and all information is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your assistance.
