Floyd Mattoon I am looking for my great grandmother's family who is SHRADER. She was born in a place called HELENA NC. Someone, told me this is or was, in Pender Co. (note from Diane Siniard- Helena is named St Helena and it IS in Pender Co.) Do you know if it is or not?.......she was born in 1887...but I can find no trace of her family. Sadly, I have very little information. Her name was Laura Shrader born June-9-1887 in Helena (newspaper obit) NC. She had three sisters, Mrs. Luther Enochs,Mrs.Annie Martin and Mrs. Harry Mountcastle. I don't know the first names of the sisters or her parents. I have tried to find a Shrader family in St. Helena but have had no luck. I would appreciate any help at all. Thanks, Carolyn Email direct at:
