Ancestry.com only listed one Clara Hill born abt 1917 in MN. There are many other Clara Hill but all born much earlier or later. None found in c.1924. In the 1920 census in Brainerd, Crow Wing, MN is
Hill, John Jacob, 39, US 1905, Finn, laborer foundry
wife Hilma S, 38
daughters Marion 9 and Clara V 2 11/12. Also step-daughter Ellen Tervo 15. Children all born MN
There are two neighbor families, both named Erickson.
The 1910 census has them in the same place. Hilma has two other children living with them, Alfred Tervo 10 and Mamie 7. Ellen is Hilma E 5. Hilma S and John have 1 son, Edwin 10/12.
The Erickson families are neighbors again.
I don't know if this is your Clara. I can't find her as yet in 1930.
