Hi! Meed more info. on my ancestor Daniel Helms, born c. 1788 in NY, married Martha Warner of CT (b. 1792-d. 21 May 1878) in about 1809 in Ontario, NY. They had 4 children, all born in Seneca, NY: Daniel (b.1810), Jehiel or Jahiel (b. Jan. 1812, d. Apr. 1902), Jerome Clinton, and Hiram. Son Daniel married Catherine Leddick (b.1814) in 1840, Seneca, Ontario County, NY. They had 4 children: Frank b. 1843 in NY, plus born in Michigan---James b. 1845, Daniel b.,1854, Nancy b. 1858.
In May 1844 Jahiel Helms married Harriett McKnutt (b. 1821, Palmyra, NY) whose parents were William McKnutt/McNutt and Elizabeth McGinley. Seeking names of Jahiel and Harriett's children. Looking for links to Great grandfather, Civil War veteran (Michigan infantry), James Wesley Helms I, possibly born 08 Jan 1844, Groveland, Livingston county, NY, died and buried Vincennes, IN 25 Jan 1894.
