Sophia Lindauer (1874-1945) Davis (b. March 12, 1874; Bridgewater, Somerset County, New Jersey, USA - d. October 21, 1945; Rye or Manhattan, New York, USA)

Daughter of Louis Julius Lindauer (1838-1915) and Mary Sheehan (1842-1888).

She is listed as born in Bridgewater, Somerset County, New Jersey on September 10, 1874 to "Louis and Mary Lindauer". This may be a baptism and she was born on March 12, 1874 in Somerset or Franklin, New Jersey. The connection to Somerset County, New Jersey may be through the Kershaws.

Minnie Lindauer (1869-1922); Lulu Lindauer (1870-after1900) who was born in August of 1870 in New York; an unnamed Lindauer (1872-?) who was born on May 02, 1872 in Manhattan; Grace Lindauer (1873-1937) who was born in May of 1873 in New York and she married Maximilian Massey, and had at least one child, but this line might not be extant; Sophia Lindauer I (1874) who was born in Bound Brook, Somerset County, New Jersey and died as an infant; Jennie Lindauer (1874-after1880) who was born in New Jersey; Katherine Lindauer (1878-?) aka Kittie Lindauer, who was born on August 21, 1878 in Elizabeth, New Jersey and was the fifth child born and the fourth living; and the youngest was Adeline Lindauer (1882-1962) aka Ada Lindauer who was born in April 1882 in New Jersey and she never married.

Sophia married Louis Davis on June 1, 1916 in Manhattan and he appears to have died young. Their marriage certificate was number "12757".

There is no record of them having any children.

In 1930 Sophia was living with her sisters: Grace Lindauer, and Ada Lindauer at 611 West 112th Street in Manhattan, New York City, New York.

Death and burial:
She was buried on October 23, 1945 in Greenwood Union Cemetery in Rye, New York. She is in the same grave as her sister, Adeline Lindauer (1885-1962). Ada Lindauer and Sophia Lindauer may not have died in Rye since they aren't mentioned in any of the family information from Rye such as obituaries and the census.

Uncompleted tasks:
Try and find her death certificate by calling Rye, New York to see if she died there. She doesn't appear to be in the Manhattan Death Index as "Sophia Davis" or "Sophia Lindauer". Order her marriage certificate.

Sophia Lindauer (1874-1945) was the first cousin, three times removed of Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ).

Memories about Sophia Lindauer's siblings:
Charles Edward Ensko II (1921-2004) said on July 26, 2003: "My grandmother ... had cousins called Addy Lindauer, Minny Lindauer and Grace Lindauer that lived in Washington Heights by us. In the 1930s they would come over to our house. Grace Lindauer was married and had a child that died. He fell down a flight of stairs in the large house in Rye in Westchester County. The house in Rye was very big on a couple of acres."
