William Edgar Helmer

Helmer Family of Texas

William Helmer


William Edgar HELMER was born November 16, 1887 in Lee County Texas, in 1900 he was living at home with his mother Lucy and several of his brothers and sisters.

  In 1907 his was in Haskell County with his brother John and his family, I believe his Mother Lucy, and sister Minnie Lou was with him. By 1908 William was married to Martha Willina Angeline (Annie) Smith. In the 1910 census for Haskell County it shows William Helmer, wife Annie, stepdaughter Lilly, and son Willard.  In a letter to Charles Howard Helmer in 1982 Willard stated his mother had passed away when he was about two years old. With that I assume Annie died sometime after May 2, 1910 when the census was taken.

 William married Feraby Tennessee "Dona" HANCOCK on November 26, 1911 in Haskell, TX. Dona was the daughter of John HANCOCK and Mary GAGE.  She was born February 22, 1898. They had four daughters Pearl, Hazel, Nellie and Doris.

 After 1924 William had moved to New Mexico where his brother John had moved a few years earlier. He married, Mrs. Pearl Mae OGwin [nee Thomas], she had a son, Buck OGWIN, born August 29, 1924. William and Pearl had four children, W. C. (C. W.), Cecil, Alma Lou, and Waldene HELMER.

 After living in New Mexico for a while William moved to Arizona. At the time of this writing Im not sure if William married Pearl in Texas, New Mexico or Arizona.

 William died January 03, 1969 in Chandler, Arizona and was buried January 07, 1969, South Park Cemetery, Roswell, NM.
