About this collection

The Helton Family settled in the Caldwell County area of North Carolina before 1805.   More than 200 years later, many members of the family still live in the North Carolina Piedmont.

Joel Helton was born in the area around 1803.  Documentation of his birth was destroyed by fire.  Joel married Molly Holmes and they had several children.   Their children included Calvin Elijah Helton (15 August 1851 – 29 January 1931).  Calvin married Rachel Holler (19 January 1841 – 14 March 1922).  Calvin and Rachel had at least 11 children including Thomas M. Helton.  Thomas married Ida Holman and the couple had 6 children.  Walter Ransom Helton was born 2 October 1914 to Thomas and Ida Holman Helton.  He married Fannie Mae Prestwood  on 14 November 1932 in York South Carolina.  Walter and Fannie had 12 children.  This collection includes artifacts for this one branch of the larger Helton Family located in Caldwell County, North Carolina and the surrounding counties.
