    Gender Female 
    History EWZ files give her birth year as 1848. J.P. Rahn states she was born in 1849 and died in 1920. In the journal of Helena’s (#494483) grandson Jacob P. Rahn (1910-1991), he writes that Peter Dueck #529679 who was the father of Aganetha (Dueck) Durksen of Pincher Creek was the cousin of Helena (Dueck) Rahn #494483. This means that Helena was the daughter of one of Jacob Gerhard Dueck’s (#102174) sons: Martin, Peter, Isaac or Abraham. Jacob P. Rahn writes that his second cousins lived in Yarrow, British Columbia. Thus, I eliminate Isaac because his children all died in the Crimea. Abraham was Helena's uncle since his son Peter was her cousin. Peter could be the father, but I don't find any children listed for him in the Molotschna School Registers and J.P. Rahn states they lived in Sparrau. There is, however, a Martin Dueck in the 1857-58 school registers who was the father of Helena, born ca 1844. It's assumed his older children were no longer in school. J.P. Rahn also adds that Helena had a brother Johann Dueck who was the father of Anna (Dueck) m. Heinrich H. Goertzen who were the parents of Helena (Goertzen) Dueck who lived in Yarrow, British Columbia. with her husband John.
