Ms. Parker and Mr. Allred,
I am Pauline Helm's grandson.
On Rufus' marriage certificate to Maud May King, his parents are listed as Brof Helm and Susan Jones.
A document that Jessie Mae Helm (provided to Cyrene's son) lists Rufus' father as Rauch Helm. It also states that Rufus was adopted by John Helm and Mary Ann Jones, so I don't believe John was Rufus' biological father.
I have not been able to find records for Brof Helm or Rauch Helm.
Please check the Fairchild-Bressler tree for information on the Helm siblings.
