Helena Regina Bemler and her unnamed husband settled in the Volga German colony of Seelmann on 16 August 1767. Helena Regina is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 81 along with a note that her husband had died 15 October 1767.
The 1767 census records that Helena Regina Bemler came from the German region of Reutlingen.
There are no known surviving male lines of this family among the Volga German colonies.
