Is Clara A Spinster?

You may have noticed that Adam's sister Clara is around a lot. She lives with her parents and 2 of her brothers.  She's also 29 years old and a schoolteacher. The perfect makings of a typical spinster. 


Jen asked this question a little while ago and I had to find out for myself.

So is Clara a spinster?

I am happy to report folks, that Clara did  NOT end up a lonely spinster living with her parents for the rest of her life.

In both the 1920 and 1930 census records she is married to a Mr. William Hoffman, making her Clara Hoffman. It does not however, state when they married so it could be any time between her 29th and 39th birthday.  We'll have to keep our eyes out for someone named William in the diary. At the end of the diary there are some names and addresses of people that Adam has mentioned already, but no addresses for William Hoffman, or any William for that matter.
