Clara B and Cora are the same person. Census arent always correct.  I wasnt looking for Arlindas info, she is my grandmother. Arlinda and Emma are listed as boarders because they are the children of Clara and Clara was listed as a boarder.  She is living with relatives. Clara marries Thomas Montgomery and has two children Frances and Harley . Oddly enough, Thomas Montgomery is the half brother of Jesse Rinehart. Jesse is the father of Arlinda Murphys husband Dewey C Rinehart.  Im having trouble finding Emma after the 1910 census.

Her mother married Tom Montgomery. You may want to search for his records: She died 23 March 1937 in Moundsville, Marshall County, West Virginia.
