Notes:  According to census and Social Security records, Helen Sokolinski was probably born 21 May 1890 in Perth Amboy, New Jersey.  She was the third of four children of Wanda Sokolinski.  The name of her father and any further information is unknown.  In 1900 Helen was living with her mother and three siblings at 18 Madison Street in Perth Amboy, New Jersey.  Her mother was a widow who was making a living as a laundress.  Helen's oldest brother Alexander was 18 years old and was working selling groceries.  He had been born in February 1882 in Germany.  Her sister Florence, age 12, was born in May 1888, Helen, age 10, in May 1890, and her brother John, age 8, in March 1892, all in Perth Amboy.

By the 1910 U.S. census, the Sokolinski family had moved to 218 Gordon Street in Perth Amboy, their long time residence.  Helen's mother Wanda was now a dressmaker.  Alexander, 28 years old, was a foreman in the terra cotta industry.  Florence was no longer living with the family.  Helen, age 19, was not working, and John, age 18, was a laborer.

Sometime before 1920, Helen married Hans Johansen Miller.  In the 1920 U.S. census, the couple were living on Ford Avenue in Woodbridge, New Jersey.  Their first son was born in 1923.  In the 1930 U.S. census, the family was living on Maxwell Avenue in Woodbridge.  The Perth Amboy City Directory lists them at this address from 1927 through 1930.  In 1931 through 1935, the directory lists them at 218 Gordon, Perth Amboy, which is the house Helen lived in as a teenager.

Helen and Han's second son was born in 1933.  By 1935, they were living at 159 Kearny Avenue, Perth Amboy.  In the 1940 U.S.census, the value of their house was $11,000.  Hans was making $3,500. yearly as a chemist for a vasaline manufacturer.

Helen attended Trenton State College and Teacher's College.  As a school teacher, she specialized in lower elementary education and remedial reading.

Helen's husband Hans died suddenly in 1955.  Helen died 27 Feb 1977 in South Perth Amboy and is buried with her husband in the Catholic New Calvary Cemetery, Parlin, New Jersey.
