  • Notes 
    • Helen ELLER grew up in Petersburg, Virginia. Her brothers nicknamed her "Sissie."
      She left High School in Petersburg to enter nurse's training at Alexandria Hospital. She was certified a Registered Nurse in 1918 or 1919. Later in life, she practiced nursing in South Hill, Virginia, at Community Memorial Hospital.
      It always bothered her that she was older than her husband, and so she created several records showing her born about 1908. They were false. When she applied for Social Security, she confirmed that she was born in 1904.
