Helen, according to Art, her son, grew up "within the sound of Bow bells", or downtown London. Her father, Thomas Rice was in some business and her mother was widowed fairly early. Helen had a number of brothers and sisters and after she married James and went to the United States, most of them followed along with their mother, Ann Williams Smith Rice.
Helen and James left Cleveland and relocated in Victoria, B.C. where the opportunities for an iron moulder might be better paid and a new more British city would still the cravings for home.
She was best known in the city for her roses and the one apple tree that was planted by Sir James Douglas on the property that they lived in once James got a really good job with Customs in Victoria.
Helen died on James' birthday, which I found very sad.
