John did not seem to move to Iowa till after 1860. Where he resided prior to this is a
mystery. By 1864, he was in Iowa & served with Iowa troops in the American Civil War as
his pension applications reveal (13 JA51880 Civil War Pension App# 353925, Cert# 412562):

..Drafted 50CT1864 & discharged on 21AUG1865.

..Pension application describes John Sr. as 5' 3-5", florid complexion, blue eyes, light
hair... claim based on catching rheumatism & bronchitis from wading cold river on march
from lashville, walking in rain 4 sleeping in mud & water 26DEC1864. Iowa Adjutant
General's report indicates that John Helm Sr. volunteered to serve as a substitute for
another (probably from Lucas Co. lA) who had been drafted 4 was willing to pay John.
..John did not catch up with regiment in time to take part in Sherman's march thru
Georgia in December 1864. However, he may may have participated in mopping up actions in
South Carolina & Forth Carolina till the conclusion of fighting. By way of Raleigh, IT.C.
& Richmond, Va. , the Thirteenth marched to Washington, D.C. where during the week of May
20, 1865, John's regiment marched thru the streets of the capital in a "magnificent
review". On June 7, the regiment was shipped via rail and steamer to Louisville, Ky.
where the regiment's men were mustered out.

The Thirteenth Regiment had enrolled 1788 men... 74 killed. ..313 wounded... 38 died of
wounds. .. 186 died of disease. .. 306 discharged for wounds, disease & other causes... 88
captured. .. 34 transferred. .. 185 buried in national cemeteries.

John BriiggeMinii (#038-4 ) , signed neighbor's affadavit to support John Helm's pension
application saying that he had known John Sr. since 1850 in Germany. .. cl900 pension was
$6. 00/mDnth. . . 8MAR1905 John Helm was admitted Marshalltown lA Soldier's Home... was
receiving $12/mo. pension. .. couldn' t read or write English. .. approx $120 paid John Jr.
upon father's death. .. hospital records indicate $62 in hospital bank. John died at
4:45AK 20FEB1912.
