1920 census of Rowan Co., Ky, magisterial district #3, lists as family #209 (between J. C. Trent and Rans Trent):

I could not find Clara in 1930, even searching for any females in Rowan Co. with given names starting with Cla (under the theory she may have remarried.)

Also wards of the orphanage were Arlen, Myrtle and Ina Trent, the children of Henry Everett Trent and Allie Conn.
