A Question for Evidentia (part _)A Question for Evidentia (part 4) – List of SubjectsA Question for Evidentia (part 4) – List of SubjectsThis series has been an example of how I use the Evidentia Software in my research. I don’t use it all of the time for everything, but there are benefits to have such a tool in my Genealogy Toolbox.
To recap, I started with a problem, Who was the mother of:

- A Question for Evidentia (part 2) – Research Log
- A Question for Evidentia (part 3) – EXCEL
- A Question for Evidentia (part 4) – List of Subjects
- A Question for Evidentia (part 5) – 1900 Census
- A Question for Evidentia (part 6) – Conclusion
Along the way, specifically identified the record that caused the problem for me:
The relationship on this Find A Grave website, between daughter and the mother is where this started. The father was not in question, just the mother.
Don’t be confused about that surname that appears for the “mother” and “spouse”. Her husband was the grandson of the Lucy’s father.
The “fix” is easy. Using the Find A Grave website messaging system I sent this to the Creator of the Memorial:
This memorial has me a little concerned. My research on Lucy H Ort Rinehart is very clear that she was not the mother of Florence Ort. I certainly understand how one might reach that conclusion. The 1880, 1900, and 1920 Census records for Lucy H Ort states that she was single. The 1900 Census asks a specific question of females how many children they had and were still alive. She was marked as Single and had no indication that she had children.
I do believe that Phineas K Rinehart was married earlier, and I have hints as to her name. Still trying to find that record.
I am suggesting, based on my research for the Ort Family that you unlink Florence and Lucy H Ort.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
On problem solved.
