Chatham Helm

There has been some trouble with Pablo’s band of Indians, in Agua Caliente Township . . . a party of Indians, some 20 or 25 in number, appeared with the purpose of driving off Chatham Helms and other settlers. A house owned by Helms was set on fire and burned, and an Indian, named Francisco, was shot and killed.  –San Diego Union, August 18, 1877.
