|Birth: ||Dec. 25, 1829|
|Death: ||Nov. 26, 1912|
NOTE: While Charlestown is today in Suffolk County, when Helen was born it was in Middlesex County. (FindAGrave does not allow that configuration as a drop-down menu option.)
According to her death certificate, filled out by Emily Bucknam, Helen was the widow of Theodore Bucknam and the daughter of Joseph and Helen (Whittemore) Tufts, and died at home after falling down the stairs.
The transcribed book of Charlestown vital records supports the death certificate:
Joseph Tufts, Esqr. of Charlestown & Miss Helen Whittemore of West Cambridge, entered June 8, 1827."
Helen Emily, dau. of Joseph Tufts & Helen his wife, Dec. 25, 1829."
Helen and Theodore's 1851 marriage was recorded in West Cambridge (now Arlington); at the time she was still living in Charlestown.
