Welcome to the Rinehart Family web site.

Looking for a new start in life, to break new ground in the fertile valleys and provide the roots for new American community covering over 2,000 miles of unforgiving terrain in an ox drawn wagon is virtually unfathomable by modern day standards. The vast desert, raging rivers, and rugged mountain passes. That we cross in matter of minutes were major endeavor and which many of settlers did not survive.


Alisa & Dina Johnson, of the Henry Branch, and Rebecca Barker, of the Louisa Branch,

are honored to be the Hosts of the

111th Rinehart Reunion at Dumas Bay Centre, Federal Way, Wa.

Thursday, June 28th - Sunday, July 1st, 2018.

Hello Rinehart Cousins,

We can't wait to have you join us at Dumas Bay Centre in Federal Way, Washington. Set on 12 acres with unobstructed views of the Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, it's conveniently located between Seattle and Tacoma, and less than 20 miles from Sea-Tac International Airport.

The Centre has several relaxing common areas where we can hold our family meeting, socialize and play together. You're invited to stroll through the sculpture and rose gardens, wander on the meandering pathways and manicured lawns or relax in the charming gazebo. The spectacular water and mountain views will take your breath away!

There are plenty of comfortable guest rooms at Dumas Bay Centre. Many are single rooms with their own half-bath. Dash Point State Park is nearby for RV or tent camping. There are also a number of familiar hotel chains in Federal Way.

Friday we'll have a family barbeque at Dash Point State Park where you can play on the beach or hike scenic trails. (Please bring your Discover Pass if you have one. $10 per vehicle.) All of our on-site delicious and healthy meals will be prepared by the Centre's executive chef ... and none of us will have to do the dishes! Don't forget, kids 17 and under eat free! Remember to enjoy our traditional strawberry shortcake!

If you can't make it for the whole weekend, do join us on Saturday for our Annual Family Meeting, Celebration of Life, family photos and fun and games. Who will be the oldest and youngest this year?

We're once again offering Rinehart Logo t-shirts and polo shirts at a great price. This year they're purple. Order them for the whole family with your registration! You can also order the Second Edition Rinehart Family History Book and our Annual Update.

We invite you to bring some treasures for the Rinehart Family Rummage Sale on Saturday. All proceeds from the sale will help defray our reunion expenses as the accommodations and meals are listed at cost.

We're looking forward to seeing you in June!
