I am trying to find out any information I can about my father's family. I know so much about my mother's line (Walsh - very easy to track) but nothing really for my father. He was only part of my life for a short time before he died suddenly and with the loss of my paternal grandmother 2 years ago, I have lost all connection to that part of me and I would very much like to be able to learn something of who the Hellyar's are/were. If anyone cane help I would be most appreciative.
This is what I do know -
My father, Edwin Vincent Hellyar Jr., was 1 of several children born to Edwin Vincent Hellyar Sr. & Phyllis Hellyar. The family was from Springfield, Mass but moved to St. Louis some years ago. And I am told our name of Hellyar is Cornish.
That is all I know.
