Helen was the daughter of Henry Campbell and Ida Eschmann. She died of colitis at the age of two months and was buried in Eastern Cemetery.

Eastern Cemetery was the site of abuse, scandal, and mismanagement for decades. Almost from the very beginning of its existence, multiple burials took place in the same graves, headstones were removed, remains were misplaced or lost, and graves were paved over. The cemetery had space for approximately 30,000 graves but about 130,000 bodies were buried in it.

Helen's grandfather, Fred Eschmann, was initially buried on 31 Jul 1885 in Section 3, Range 21. Two graves were purchased by Fred's widow, Catherine, with one to be reserved for her. On 10 Nov 1887, Catherine purchased three graves in Section 3, Range 24 (Graves 14, 15, and 16) and Fred was disinterred and reburied in Grave 14. On 03 Feb 1890 Fred's mother-in-law Katherine Marie Norden was buried in Grave 16. On 16 Sep 1904 Helen was buried in Grave 14 (the same grave as Fred). There is no record of Grave 15 ever having been used.
