Death Certificate # 0021419 identifies Emily as being the daughter of Edward Hoffman & Mary (maiden name unknown), dying of cerebral hemorrhage in Piffer Nursing Home. Never married. Informant is George Riess, 5452 Winona Avenue.
Unknown why Emily is listed as a Sage daughter in the 1920 census unless mother, Mary was married to Edward Hoffman before Harlow Sage. If Emily is an actual daughter, I do not know why she is not listed with parents in the 1900 & 1910 census records.
1920 St Louis Co., MO census: Harlow S. Sage (head) 63 b WI Mary Sage (wife) 63 b Bohemia Emily Sage (dau) 38 b MO, Single
Residence on April 1, 1935: same house as 1940 census.
1940 Etzel Avenue, Wellston, Normandy, St. Louis Co., MO census: Mary Sage (head) 78 b Bohemia, Widow Emily Sage (dau) 47 b MO, Widow, Seamstress in shirt factory
I continue to link Emily with Harlow as father until this puzzle is figured out. If anyone has more information on Emily, I would be thrilled to learn of it. Thank you!
Many thanks for stone photo, Susan Ing, who first listed and graciously transferred memorial.
