    Harry G. Rinehart. Among those who, while maintaining their business interests elsewhere, have had family connections in Miami county was the late Harry G. Rinehart. Mr. Rinehart belonged to an old family of Maryland, in which State he was born, September 4, 1864, and from which his uncle, Daniel Rinehart, went forth to serve as a Union soldier during the war between the states and rose to the rank of a captain. Harry G. Rinehart's people were for the greater part agriculturists, but he decided upon a different vocation, and after a course in Valparaiso University became an expert stenographer. This vocation caused him to be called to Chicago, where he was engaged in secretarial work with large concerns and prominent individuals for a number of years. His death occurred January 8, 1918. Mr. Rinehart was a man of kindly impulses and splendid character, and although he never sought public office, his personal interests being of a nature to preclude the idea of his engaging actively in politics, he always observed the rules of good citizenship and supported such worthy movements as were brought to his notice. He married, November 6, 1890, Martha, daughter of Rev. Isaac and Anna (Warner) Studebaker, of Miami county, and they became the parents of four children: Horace, deceased; Frederick Grant, Eugene Frank and Grace Louise. Eugene F. Rinehart was a member of the United States Aviation corps during the World war, having trained at Waco, Tex., and later in England, and became inspector of aviation construction. Since the death of her husband, Mrs. Rinehart has lived on the family farm in Elizabeth township, her pleasant home being Situated on Casstown R. F. D. No. 1. Here she has a well-cultivated property, which is being operated by her sons under her supervision. Mrs. Rinehart is a woman of many accomplishments, and she and the members of her family are very highly esteemed in the community.
