bullet  General Notes:

Lucinda met her future husband "by happenstance when she was just 14 years old. Lucinda, like many young ladies of that day, was educated by her father and did not attend public schools. During a meeting between Helm and her father, Lucinda entered the parlor of their home to show her father a map that she had been working on. Seven years later, on August 10, 1830, John and Lucinda were married at Edgewood in Bardstown." -- source:
