I'm a descendant of Marvel Helton of Hawkins County, Tennessee. Through research in the census and correspondence with other descendants, I've put together the data on these pages. It's organized into one page for Marvel Helton and Family, and separate descendant reports for each of his children:
Along the way, I've accumulated a lot of data about other Helton families who also lived in Hawkins County. I had a lot of confusion trying to tell Marvel Helton's son John from another John who was also born around 1805. I've put a page here about John and Charity Helton and Family. There's a page about another early resident of Hawkins County, Temperance Helton and Family. After the Civil War, Hawkins County became the new home of Some Helton's from Virginia.
Another family of Hawkins County often married into the Helton family. I've put up a descent from the earliest Alvis of Hawkins County.
I've prepared a combined index of all these reports by copying the indexes from the end of each report into a single page. There's also a list of surnames that link into the index file. Once you find a name in the index, the link will pop you right to him in his page.
If you find something interesting here, please let me know the name and page, and I'll send you email whenever I change anything in that line. And I'll be happy to receive reports of any errors you may find.
