|Bio and Links|
My Father,GLENN W.HELMS,came from pioneer folks who settled near The Painted Hills, Michell, Oregon.The CARROLL FAMILY have a cemetery in that area.|
My Mother, IRENE SUSAN HIGGINS HELMS,grew up in the Paulina Valley, Oregon. Her grandfather and grandmother built the Roba Ranch. This ranch was placed on the National Register of Historic Homes in 2007 - a labor of love my sister, Rachel Ann Carver, and I worked on for over three years.
I love tracking down my ancestors, adding photos and finding stories about them.
Your tombstones stand among the hills, but not neglected or alone.
The names and dates are chisled out of wood and polished stone.
The names reach out to all who care, but it is too late to mourn.
You do not know that we exist-you died and we were born.
Yet, each of us are cells of you-in flesh and blood and bone.
Our hearts contract and beat a pulse not entirely our own.
Dear Ancestors, the places you filled those many years ago, spreads out among the ones you left behind. The ones who would lave loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved, I wonder if you know that someday, some of us would find this spot
and come to pay homage to you.

|Carrie and Allen||RE: Appreciate the transfer!|
You are of course very welcome! I have been reading your mother's book about the old schools in Crook County. Such a wonderful resource, a real treasure for those of us researching the families of Central Oregon. She was a talented and obviously wonderful person. Blessings!
|Kristi ||RE: Earl Helms|
I wonder if she is buried by her parents, Henry and Mollie Mitchell who are also buried in a Portland Cemetery but I don't know which one.
Thanks for the info.
Are you a descendant of one of Nora's children?

|Kristi ||RE: Earl Helms|
Yes, I knew they had two children. But not much about Earl after Nora died in 1949.
I am related. Nora's mom was Mollie Brandt, my great great grand aunt. But I also am in touch with one of Mollie's descendants.
Do you know where Nora is buried?

I am looking for Earl Oren Helms and found a memorial for Earl Born the same year and you have a photo of him, who is in the photo with him?
I was wondering if your Earl was married to Nora Mitchell who died in 1949 and then possibly remarried?
