    Gender Female 
    History One family record says that her maiden name was Ratzlaff! After the death of her husband, she and sons Abraham and Tobias left the Molotschna Colony and returned to Volhynia with the group that established Heinrichsdorf. Heinrichsdorf p. 49: she is listed as a widow. She is listed on the same pages as a Tobias Ratzlaff (b. 1831) married to Helena Nachtigahl, maybe her son. On the New York arrival list for the Colina, her first name is given as Hendika and her age is given as 72, both of which are incorrect.
