Notes: Family tradition has it that Clara assisted Oscar Rasch in researching the Rasch Genealogy. She traveled to Germany in the early 1930's, visited the village of Obersdorf, was shown the house in which the family lived, then taken to the local parish church and shown letters the "Rasch brothers" had written to the church asking for prayers as they had never been to sea and were afraid of the long voyage to America. The 1910 Federal Census has her still living in Grand Rapids, Michigan with her aged widowed mother. In the 1920 Federal Census Clare was listed as a lodger in a Los Angeles hotel. Helen [Gast] Jackoboice remembers her Aunt Clara this way: "She was a world traveler. She went with a pretty high class group of older ladies. They were wonderful." Clara remembered the day that they were listening to the radio with reports of getting into the War. Aunt Clara told everyone how poor everyone was in those other countries. Helen said it was so sad that Aunt Clara's eye sight was so poor. "She could have written many books on all of this. Aunt Clara lived in a hotel in California."
