Sophia was born around May 19, 1815 to Jeanette and Alexander Weber (c1790-?) of Germany.

Memories about Sophie and Oscar Lindauer:
In 1965 Eloise Ensko (1925-1993) wrote the following: "My great-grandmother Sophia married an Oscar Lindauer. They came from Alsace-Lorraine [to the US] on their honeymoon. Alsace-Lorraine was then owned by the French. Great grandmother brought a lovely picture of Napoleon over from the other side - none of which I have ever seen duplicated. It is still in the family and in excellent condition. The Lindauer family owned a huge department store over there. When the newlyweds came to this country about the early 1800's they settled in Philadelphia. The living room furniture is still in the family. I have in my possession one of the sitting chairs. It is a very pretty, light wood in color, Victorian style. It is now of heavy material and cover. Sophia's Oscar had three boys and later on one girl. The boys were Charles, Louis and John." Note: Sophia was the second wife so she did not arrive in the USA on her honeymoon. The writer has conflated both spouses.
The Lindauer furniture is currently in the possession of Charles Edward Ensko II (1921-2004) who had it refinished.
Sophia died on October 09, 1891 in Manhattan and her death certificate number was "34791".
She was buried with her husband in Cypress Hills Cemetery in Brooklyn. There is no tombstone for her or her husband, but the site has two markers for other family members: William Arthur Ensko II (1850-1889); and Stanley Marlton Massey (1895-1902). It is grave 8-12, lot 108, in the Westminster area.
Sophia Weber (1815-1891) was the third great step-grandmother of Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ).
