From Elizabeth Kerchner
Philip T. Deare He traveled all over the country as a crew cook. Construction, railroad building, and public works crews. He felt if he worked as a cook he would never go hungry. Maybe the first years after leaving home were hard in that way. 
Myra, was his 5th wife and his 7th wife. [When they broke up] She returned to her parents in Niagara Falls, NY. He married a friend but regretted it. 8 years later, divorced, he won [Myra] back. They were remarried and were together for the rest of their lives. [They] settled in Buffalo and opened a Restaurant and Inn. It was called "The Caribou Inn" There was also an Ice Cream parlor attached. 
As far as we know, [he] had only one other child with an early wife. A girl who grew up in California. I am not sure of her exact name. Margaret ?
Philip died in 1946. Myra died in her mid 50's from the complications of a serious car accident.
