Married: 29 April 1906, San Francisco
|The Reinhold and Phoedovius families had been
neighbors for many years at the time of the 1906 Earthquake and Fire.
According to her granddaughter Dolores, Clara never forgot how frightened
she was as she watched from Potrero Hill while the City burned in the days
following the earthquake. Eleven days after the initial quake, Darwin
Otto Reinhold and Clara Elvira Phoedovius were married.
On May 2nd, 1907, Darwin and Clara had a son they named George Darwin Reinhold (shown in picture with parents at right). Another son, Edgar Crandall Reinhold was born on November 26th, 1908. With the help of Clara's brother Frank, Darwin built a house at 520 Day Street (which still stands) and the family lived there for many years. Darwin was a self-employed pattern and model maker with his own shop at 1041 Folsom Street. George graduated from Mission High School where he excelled in track. Edgar developed a remarkable talent for the arts.
Both George and Edgar worked at their father's pattern shop for a time. George met a young woman named Beatrice Ramona Bino one day at Washington Park in Burlingame, where they had both gone to enjoy a game of tennis. Beatrice (who had been born in Cupertino on July 28th, 1911) was the second daughter of Italian immigrant Angelo Bino (1879-1972) and San Francisco native Victoria Corsiglia 1884-1965). George and Beatrice were married, and in 1942, at the age of 34, George was drafted into the Army. He served as a sharp shooter in the South Pacific from 1942 to 1945. Beatrice worked in the billing department at Reynolds Tobacco Company.
George and Beatrice had a daughter they named Dolores Armida Reinhold. Dolores has three sons: James Michael Tretheway, Frank Edward Bonifacio and Robert George Bonifacio. James Tretheway's children are Jamie Michele, James Michael, Jr. and Amanda Lynn Tretheway. Frank Bonifacio's children are Zachary Wayne, Ryan Robert and Patrick William Bonifacio. Robert's children are Briana Michele and Brandon James Bonifacio.
