AUSTIN & HELSLEY 1844/46 AL>KY>TN>MO

HOPELESSLY LOST HELSLEY/CALTON FAMILY ORIGIN PLEASE HELP! AL>NC>MO..

Surnames: HELSLEY, CARLTON, or CALTON, RUTLEDGE, HENDERSON, AUSTIN,
MOORE, DELCOUR.

I am trying to discover information about my HELSLEY and CALTON families heritage, but
because so very little is known the history maybe hard to understand. I am sure you will agree
with me as a fellow genealogical researcher that a family heritage that is lost is truly a very sad
thing. I have searched for a very long time for information, and at this time, I have exhausted all
possible public, governmental, and clan outlets for information. I am hoping someone out there
can help me with one of my classic dead ends. I am searching for information on: Peter
HELSLEY, his wife Sarah Jane CALTON, their parents, and their children and families. It is my
hope that by placing this message on these boards, someone out there with a small scrap of
information will see this message and contact me. The best way I can envision to start this
despaired search for information is to tell you what I know and go from there. Listed below is the
information I have for this HELSLEY family. Would you please appraise this information and
determine if there is any common links with your own family? I would greatly appreciate any and
all assistance.
