|Birth: ||Sep., 1882|
Alta was one of four children born to Isaac Rinehart and Julia Hileman who married on 15 Nov 1880. Alta had a brother named Bert, born in 1887. Her two other siblings both died before 1900. I found the family on the 1900 Census, living in Lincoln, St. Joseph, Indiana, where Isaac was earning a living as a plasterer. Besides the family, there were three lodgers living in the home. One of them was 25-year-old bicycle maker Bert Apple.
A year after that census, Alta married William Bert Apple on 10 Jan 1901 in St.Joseph County, Indiana. They welcomed son Darwin on 18 Mar 1906. The three of them appeared together on the 1910 Census, living in Lincoln, St. Joseph. Bert was the proprietor of a sporting goods store.
In 1920, the family was living in Walkerton, St. Joseph, Indiana. Bert was the owner of an automobile repair shop.
On 11 Oct 1930, Darwin married Julia E. Peirce in Henry Co., Indiana. Darwin's parents appeared on the 1930 Census with an empty nest except for a lodger.
Sadly, Alta's husband Bert died in 1935 at age 60. Alta appeared on the 1940 Census, still in Walkerton, aged 57 and living by herself. She died in 1950 at age 68.
