I am trying to document Stella Davis Smith Dering - I think second marriage to Alonzo Dering and moved from Indiana to Oregon.

Appears Alonzo's mother was also Stella and that they joined her in Oregon.

Is this her?
1920 Census, Portland, Multnomah County, Oregon
Stella Dering, age 47, born Kansas
Marion Dering, age 16, born Kentucky
Virginia Dering, age 14, born Indiana
Eldon Dering, age 13, born Indiana
Alonzo Dering, age 12, born Kentucky
Rae Simons, daughter, age 17, born Kentucky

Stella died January 29, 1946 and is buried in Lincoln Memorial Park (this date is from a notice her daughter put in the paper memorializing her death several years later. I have not yet found an obit)

I saw this entry - but was confused by the Kansas birthplace. To my knowledge Stella was born in Indiana. I need to figure out if her parents could have been in Kansas at the time of her birth. Thank you for the additional details on date of death -
