Rheinhart, Emmet
ca1875 01/26/1914 A brief note in the Elgin Echo of 1/29/1914 stated that he "had the misfortune of being a cripple and had never enjoyed good health"; and from the Register & Argus: "He was laid to rest beside his mother in the Patterson cemetery in Wagner township." Conflict! WPA records give burial place as County Home cemetery - where it is very unlikely his mother Sarah Hubbard Reinhart, who died bet 1875 & 1880, is buried
