Helen's line reads: Harris, Helen ; 10 Jan 1858 - 28 Sep 1947
The cemetery also has many of Helen's relatives and the headstone data fits the Helen that I have found in the 1910 census.
Haskell County Death Records
Death Records on the McCurtain, Haskell County, Oklahoma Genealogical Society's website.
They don't give many details on how or where they found the records, but they're supposed to be "local". The only name I could find that I recognized, was Helen's. Her line from the record read as follows: HARRIS, Helen , F , 28 Sept 1947 , Book 6 , 21
I presume this is the same Helen based on the matching death date. (For this reason I match it with the headstone source.) Helen is listed as Helen F. Harris. (I am therefore made a bit more curious where we get "Permelia Ann" from. It's not in any of my other sources.)

A "Helen A. Cason" is listed here as a 22 year old niece in the LaBass family. (The indexers apparently read the name as "Helen A. Cuson".) Further research has shown that our Helen Cason's mother Mary F. (Frost) Cason was the sister of Volumnia Anne (Frost) LaBass. (Mary F. Cason was apparently also the half-sister of her mother-in-law.)
1870
1870 U.S. Census - Scott Township, Sharp County, Arkansas, page 13 of 17
Family 87, Line 26
Listed in family of mother and step-father, Jonathan J. Wilson.

Helen's family can't seem to be found in 1860 based on various indexed searches of Arkansas and the entire U.S.A. as well a manual run through Reed's Creek and Scott townships in Lawrence County, Arkansas.
