    1910 United States Federal Census
    Name: Clara Rinehart
    Age in 1910: 42
    Estimated Birth Year: abt 1868
    Birthplace: Pennsylvania
    Relation to Head of House: Wife
    Father's Birth Place: Pennsylvania
    Mother's Birth Place: Pennsylvania
    Spouse's Name: Lem J
    Home in 1910: Davenport Ward 3, Lincoln, Washington
    Marital Status: Married
    Race: White
    Gender: Female
    Household Members: Name Age
    Lem J Rinehart 39
    Clara Rinehart 42
    May Knight 12
    Note: Clara has been married three times (M3), this time for two years; she is
    the mother of two children with both children still living.

    We know Clara married at least twice because we have records for those
    marriages, as follows:

    ID Number 159078
    Grooms Name: C. D. CHILDERS
    Brides Name: Clara LOOP
    County of Marriage: Union, Oregon
    Date of Marriage: 10 Apr 1884
    Volume D, Page 126

    ReferenceNumber: ealinmr1605
    Groom's Last Name: Rinehart
    Groom's First Name: Lemmel Jr
    Groom's Middle Name: Jas
    Bride's Last Name: Knight
    Bride's First Name: Clara
    Bride's Middle Name: Soop
    Marriage Date: 11/22/1908
    Recording Date:
    County: Lincoln

    In the Washington State marriage record above we can see that when Clara
    married Lemuel James Rinehart she gave her name as Clara Knight. However, I
    have never found a marriage record for Clara Childers and Charles E. Knight.
    If that record could be located I think that would be excellent evidence that
    Phoebe May Knight is their daughter.

    I located the birth record for Phoebe May Knight as follows:

    Washington State Secretary of State Digital Archives
    Spokane County Births 1890-1907
    Title: Spokane County Births 1890-1907
    County: Spokane
    Name: Birth Records
    image file #: easpobirret3226
    name: Knight
    birth date: 29 Apr 1897
    sex: F
    father's name: Chas Knight
    mother's maiden name: Sarah Strichfield
    place of birth: Spokane
    county: Spokane
    Child: KNIGHT, Phoebe May born 29 April 1897 Female White A. L.
    Mother: STRUCHFIELD, (Stuchfield) Sarah 32 yoa (abt. 1865) born Iowa
    Father: KNIGHT, Charles E. 29 yoa (abt. 1868) born Washington
    Note: Setchfield, Sgutchfield, Stuchfield, Scutchfield, Scrutchfield
    Note: her birth was before mom's divorce from Cyrus.
    Question: If Clara Lavina Loop is the biological mother of Phoebe May Knight
    did Clara give a false name? Why would she do that?

    I ordered a photocopy of the original birth record then made notes about the
    information. There are some inconsistencies, such as: the birth mother gives
    her birth state as Iowa; the birth mother says this is her fourth child; the
    birth mother gives her age as 32, but the age of our Clara at the time of this
    birth was 31 years, 4 months, 7 days.

    I searched for a person (or people) named Setchfield, Sgutchfield, Stuchfield,
    Scutchfield, Scrutchfield, etc. but could not locate a female the same age.

    Earlier in time in the 1900 census our Clara Lavina Loop is visiting her mother
    and stepfather in California. In that census record it appears that Clara is
    traveling with a man named Frank Mansfield (sort of like Strichfield in the
    birth record above). Frank Mansfield appears in two Oregon census records in
    Umatilla County but magically disappears and I have never found him thereafter.

    At the same time (1900 census) our Phoebe May Knight is living with her
    paternal grandmother and step grandfather in Umatilla County, Oregon:

    1900 United States Federal Census
    Name: Phebe Knight
    Home in 1900: Valley, Umatilla, Oregon
    Age: 3
    Birth Date: Apr 1897
    Birthplace: Washington
    Race: White
    Ethnicity: American
    Gender: Female
    Relationship to Head of House: Granddaughter
    Father's Birthplace: Washington
    Mother's Birthplace: Missouri
    Marital Status: Single
    Residence : Athena Town, Umatilla, Oregon
    Household Members: Name Age
    Jesse Bullington 60
    Phebe Bullington 61
    Phebe Knight 3
    Note: Jesse Bullington born South Carolina, with father born Virginia and
    mother born South Carolina, he is a Farmer. Phoebe Bullington is the mother of
    10 children with 6 still living, born Illinois with father born Pennsylvania
    and mother born Kentucky. Phoebe Knight born Washington, with father born
    Washington and mother born Missouri. The person reporting for Phoebe Knight is
    her paternal grandmother who remarried.
    Enumerated June 29th.

    I have yet to attempt to find an obituary for Phoebe May (Knight) Hinds, though
    it would seem that it would appear in a Washington or Multnomah County, Oregon

    Phoebe May Knight married Harry Julian Hinds and they had one child Deane
    Knight Hinds.

    Deane Knight Hinds married June Skinner and they had two children Candace L.
    Hinds and Tim Hinds.

    Candace L. Hinds married Ronald J. Hallissey.

    U.S. Public Records Index, Volume 1
    Name: Candace L Hallissey
    Birth Date: 1 Sep 1946 [27 Jul 1945]
    Address: 12836 Bellevue, Bellevue, WA, 98004
    [12836 Bellevue 140, Bellevue, WA, 98005]
    [864 W Lake Sammamish Pkwy NE # Py, Bellevue, WA, 98008-4229 (1993)]
    [864 W Lake Samm NE Py, Bellevue, WA, 98006 (1994)]
    [12835 Bel Red Rd # Rr140, Bellevue, WA, 98005-2631 (1996)]
    [12835 Bel Red Rd # Rr3140, Bellevue, WA, 98005-2631 (1992)]

    I suspect that Candace L. (Hinds) Hallissey would know the true birth mother of
    her grandmother Phoebe May Knight; but I have not tried to contact Candace.

    The two obituaries I found for Clara Lavina Loop mention her daughter Nellie
    Leota (Childers) Selde as a survivor. I suspect that Nellie wrote the
    obituary. However, Phoebe May (Knight) Hinds is not mentioned as a survivor,
    even though Phoebe was living. Perhaps this was an oversight, or maybe Nellie
    and Phoebe did not have a good relationship, or perhaps Phoebe was not
    mentioned because she was an adopted daughter.

    Tuck, there is evidence on both sides that Phoebe was a biological or adopted
    daughter, but it will take a bit more research and information to conclusively
    answer your question. I would like to know the answer as well, I just do not
    know at this time.

    If you can think of some questions that I have not covered in the answer above
    please let me know. Oftentimes fresh eyes can shed new light on situations.

    Please say hello to Virginia.
