RINEHART, Elmer E.

Elmer E. Rinehart is sheriff of Lake county, Oregon, having been elected to that office on the Republican ticket in the spring of 1904. He came to Lake county in 1894 and engaged in the saw mill business in partnership with Resa A. Hawkins, a pioneer of the county, under the firm name of Hawkins & Rinehart. Their plant is situated in the Crooked creek valley, where the company also owns a large tract of timber and agricultural lands. They are still running the mill with profit, and in addition they are quite extensively engaged in the business of raising and farming.

Mr. Rinehart, is a native of Chillicothe, Ohio, and was born January 29, 1864. His father David G. Rinehart, is a native of Pennsylvania, but removed to Ohio about the time of the construction of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad. Upon the outbreak of the Rebellion he enlisted in the army and his military record covers a period of three and one-half years, during which time he was a participant in some of the most severe battles of the war, among which may be mentioned the battle of Bull Run. He is still living in Ross county Ohio, at the age of eighty-two years. Our subject’s mother was Elizabeth (Erlywine) Rinehart a native of West Virginia. She hat attained the age of sixty-five years when she died in 1895.

Mr. Rinehart was a member of a family of eleven children, eight of whom are still living. The first twenty years of his life were spent in the state of his birth. In 1884 he came west and settled in Surprise valley, California. during his boyhood he mastered the trade of stationary engineer, and since coming to the west has followed that trade, his work being confined to the running of engines in lumber and grist mills.

On May 20, 1888, Mr Rinehart was married to Addie Peters, a native of California, and daughter of Claus Peters, a German by birth and a pioneer of California. Claus Peters was one of the first settlers in Surprise valley, and his death occurred there December 14, 1904. Mr and Mrs Rinehart have been parents of one child, a son by the name of Clarence D.

It may be said to the credit of Mr. Rinehart that he started in business in Lake county ten years ago without a dollar in his own name; but so diligently has he applied his energies to his business and so faithfully has he met all adversities that he is now in the best of circumstances and enjoys the good will of a wide circle of friends.

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.

Thanks,
