Comments:
Hello,
My name is James Keith Helmer son of Julie Ann Helmer, grandson of James Willis Helmer. I am very interested in the history of our family, my great Grandfather was adopted by the Helmers so my line has no direct Helmer connection but my Great Grandfather was taken in by the good people of the Helmer family and I am very proud of my family name. I had never considered getting a tattoo before but I now plan to have the family crest and motto veritos vos liberabit permanently inscribed on my body as a sign of homage to my family. I would be very interested in any information you would be able to provide regarding the family I am so proud of. As I know you are also a Helmer so the chance to speak with you also I would greatly appreciate. Any ability to meet others of the Helmer clan would absolutely delight me and my Grandfather as well. If you can help me with family history information I would also greatly appreciate that info. My family owes the prosperity and work ethic the Helmer family endowed upon my Great Grandfather for our lines success. So I hope that his adoption does make you think we are not real Helmers, although he was of German decent, take one look at our facial structure and we are obviously very German. I would love to speak with you if possible. You must also feel the same reverence for our family clan and from your web page you have a vast wealth of family history knowledge. I hope to hear from you soon but I know people are busy so even just any documents (.pdf etc) would suffice, myself, mother, and Grandfather would greatly appreciate this information. If possible please get in touch with me I cant tell you how much I would appreciate it.
Sincerely,
James Keith Helmer

My Helmer ancestor settled outside of Cornwall, Ontario in Canada on a land grant (still in the family, I think); possibly John P. Helmer line. One of two John Helmers to settle in this area mid-to-late 1780s. Both came from NYS; Oriskany/Mohawk Valley area. Both came from Palatine immigrants, early 1700s.

My mother was Clara Keng, married Herbert Noak; lived in Carmine. My grandfather was August Keng from Latium. I know that some of that family lived in Giddings. I read the Giddings Cemetery list & found the following Kengs:
Nina, Ethel, Lena, Robert E., & Annie Sarah. I will check my Family Tree Maker for any of the above names.
Very nice family web site. Enjoyed it.

I am connected with the Helmer only in that a daughter of my aunt Issie Black Dodd married Floyd Helmer, and I know the three daughters of that family.
My connection is Old Salem Cemetery, which I am going to get designated a Texas Historic Cemetery, and I hope have title of Salem transferred to a Cemetery Association, and then begin to clean and fence it.

Hello,
My name is Terri Helmer Woodside. I have just begun researching my Father's family (Paul Joseph Helmer). That is how I came across your website. It does not appear that we are related to your 'Helmer' family, but if anyone does have any information on my Helmer branch I would appreciate hearing from you.
So far, I have been able to trace back to Joann Gerd Heinrich Helmer, born-09NOV1796 in Lorup, Germany, married Maria Franzisca Korte in 1814 #she died 26JUL1873 in Lorup#. Assume their son, Joann Heinrich Helmer, born 1823 in Lorup, Germany, married Anna Berens, born 03May1827, on 05MAY1851, he died 17NOV1883 in Lorup, Germany.
The next family I could locate was possibly their son, Bernard Joseph Helmer Sr, born 08MAR1861 in Lorup and died on 13OCT1943 in Covington, KY. He married his first wife Marie Stahl, born-22JAN1857 in Saarland, in 1880, she died 08SEP1901 in Covington, KY. Unable to locate when they migrated from Lorup, Germany to Covington, KY. Bernard married his second wife, Euphemena Wessling, born-30OCT1864 in Saarland, in 1903, she died 22NOV1920 in Covington, KY. Think Bernard and Marie's son Bernard Jr, born 05NOV1884 is their son. Our family tree is easy from that point. Bernard Jr. was my great-grandfather.
If anyone has any information, would appreciate your help.
Thanks... Terri Helmer Woodside

I hight from the Little Miami valley region of Ohio Helmers, who migrated from Steuben county NY, USA in the very early 1800s (1810-1820) to Miami and Greene counties Ohio.

If anyone has information regarding Phillip's parentage I'd sure like to hear about it!

Thanks

I'm not sure if I've visited before or not. But, I'm trying to find descendents, or avenues to them,of my great grandfather, John Leo Helmer. I believe he was married to a Marry Harris. He was from Germany and she was from a country between Germany and France that is no longer there. It's possible that either Germany or France took this country as it's own, only I don't know if it was during WWI or WWII. Thank you. :)

Researching my mother’s surname has been a real challenge!

They lived in: Norway; Ontario, Canada; NY; Kalkaska, Michigan, Walla Walla, WA; Nevada; Arizona & California.

Here’s the first family:

William Hjalmer/Helmer b. <1820> d. 1905 m. Katie
(9 children follow)
Marshall Helmer b. 25 Jan 1855 in Kingston,Ontario, Canada
Alfred – Jacob – Albert b. Feb 1848 – William – Mary –
Stephen F. b. Nov 1852 (lived in North Dakota & Calif) – Katie –
Wilbur b. May 1858

Please let me know if you have this branch or any information and I’ll be happy to help anyone I can.

Hi Debbie: How surprised I was to have my daughter Michelle send this to me--"Check Out The Helmer Family" web site. A friend of mine had told me something about it sometime ago, I pulled it up, but could not view the pictures, as she did. She said there were pictures of Charles, Dennis & me (Judy) William, Shirley and etc. I had wanted to get hold of you to see if you could help guide me through it, but one thing led to another, and I never did. Tonight Michelle found this, so I had to try it. I have known through the years you had really been working on it, and boy have you. What a great wonderful job you have done. You must be so proud of yourself. I know the rest of the family is. I scrolled through some of the stuff and saw the message your mother wrote in there to the Charles Helmer Family---really touched my heart. I would love to help you in anway that I could with me and our family, on children, marriages, dates and etc. Please let me hear from you. Again, what a wonderful well done job you have done. Thank you from the Charles Helmer Family. Sincerely, Judy Helmer

After spending 22 yrs in USN have run into helmers in many places. Always find it easier to tie family links together if you are related to or have a family tie with Adam Helmer (the famous indian scout of the mohawk valley)
Drums along the Mohawk , the book and the movie have him in them. If you have this tie in you background then you can work forward or backward. It helps and hope this helps you and yours. That is the line from the Palentine in Germany, I have traced my family back to 1691 in Germany. John

Hi,

I'm an English Helmer, and therefore probably not related to any of you lot, my branch of the family has lived in South Devon England since at least 1580 At that time there were only 3 families of that name in the UK. There is a family story that the family is of Viking decent, ( the Vikings came here a good 1000 years ago, who knows )
Anyway, keep up this healthy self obsession, I know I will.

Hello Debbi, your cousin Katherine here. Lately I've been trying to get more information on our cousin, Wilson Anderson, who was murdered 1874 by William "Bill" Longley. Wilson should be on the 1870 census somewhere, but I can't find him. His parents, Henry and Caroline Willingham Anderson, are on 1870 Lee Co. census, but Wilson is not with them; Wilson should have been 17 or 18 at that time based on his age of 7 on the 1860 census with his parents in Lee Co. Also, who did Wilson marry? In the History of Lee Co., it says that Wilson's wife and two children were at the hanging of Bill Longley in Giddings. If you find anything, please let me know. Hope all is well with you. Thanks, Katherine

If anyone is interested in creating a "Helmer Signatures" page for his family, he may contact me and I can send a paper copy of the names and signatures.

The first man, Martini Helmer, could not sign his name, but he consistently used the mark that looks like a figure-8 lying on its side. The second man on the list, Antoni Helmer, died in 1760. I did not have the exact date of his death when I made this page.

The records of the Catholic Church in Eschbach, Bas-Rhin, France started in 1694. Through the 1700s these records of baptisms, marriages and deaths were recorded in Latin. You may note a Latin spelling to some of the given names. In the 1800s the vital records were recorded at the town hall and written in French.

The surname HELMER has had a number of spelling variations in the Eschbach records. I have seen the named spelled Hollmair, Helmair, Hellmer, Hellmar and Helmer. In the late 1600s and early 1700s the surnames had "in" added to the end of the name. Eventually "in" appeared at the end of women's maiden names only. That practice was dropped later in the 1700s.

I am searching for the siblings and parents of Archibald C. Willingham of my and Deb's family. The earliest record found on Archibald is the 1805 Columbia Co., GA tax list[copy]. In Columbia Co., GA, John Greene Willingham witnessed the purchase in 1808 and the sale in 1811 of land by Archibald [copy of both]. John Greene Willingham is associated with Elizabeth Willingham who already owned 150 acres in Columbia Co., GA in 1806 when she purchased an additional 100 acres [plat in copy]. Who is this Elizabeth Willingham? Was she a widow? Good job on your web site, Deb. Cousin Katherine

The HELMERs were Austrian. They immigrated to Alsace near the end or following the Thirty Years War. They initially went to Hagenau but (perhaps)following its destruction by King Louis (France) moved on to Eschbach. HELMERs live today in Eschbach, a beautiful small village several Kilometers NW of Hagenau. Eschbach is more than a wide spot in the road. Alsace was controlled by the Austrian Emperor before the 30 Years war but was ceded to Louis with the Treaty (of Westphalia?).
