'Looking for Cecil Lee Helton of IL born around 1910."

Cecil was my husband's grandfather that he never met. And as far as I can remember this dad talking about, that he was so young that he couldn't really remember anything about him. Cecil married a Mary Belle Arbuckle and had a son 2/15/1930 named Cecil Lee Helton,Jr. She later left or he left don't know anyway she remarried to Leo Pontious of Shobonier, IL. He helped raise Cecil.

The last known record that I could find was that 1920 and it was when him and Mary lived in Mourtrie County up by Arthur, IL. Nobody knows what happened to him.

He had a sister named Violet that lived in Madison County, IL But she has since passed away. So I don't know if there is anybody that has any more info on him.

I only found two Cecils that was born in 1910 in IL. One was in UtaH and I can't find out any burial info and the other was in FL. and he has since passed away, too.

Anyway, My husband's dad has since died of lung cancer in January 10, 1996. He had married Mary Murphy of Vandalia, IL and they had eight children. One set of twins, which my husband is one of them. All was boys except for one girl. She was born right in the middle of all the boys. Cecil and Mary since got a divorce in 1973/74. It was hard on all the children. He remarried 2 more times. Mary passed away in October 13, 1996. My husband took care of both of them til the time came. He was a great son.

So if anybody has any info on him, please let us know so I can pass it on to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
