HELIZON

 

 

            Links to the Helbron family are the result of the marriage of John William Helbron (RN=1) to Joyce Marie Helizon (RN=514), daughter of Walter and Millie (neé Cole) Helizon, on 13 Jul 1968 in Chicago, Cook Co., IL. To-date, no records have been found to trace this family back further than about 1858 in what was the old Kingdom of Galicia, now present-day, southeastern Poland.  Records indicate that most of the immigrants listed below originated in the region within 20 km (~12.5 mi) of the provincial capital city of Tarnów. Records found to-date also indicate that all of the six children of Michael Helizon immigrated to the U.S. between 1905 and 1911 and all five settled in Chicago, Cook Co., IL.

 

A limited lineage on the Cole surname related to this Helizon family is also provided.

The 1907 passenger list for RN=2570 lists Marya Fella, and a companion, Marya Helizon, and said she was joining a “niece” in Chicago. Pending further confirmation, Generation B as listed below is assumed to be accurate.
