There is no record of them having any children.

Death and BurialEdit

She was buried on October 23, 1945 in Greenwood Union Cemetery, Rye, New York. She is in the same grave as her sister, Ada Lindauer (1882-1945). 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.

Two Sophia Lindauers recordedEdit

There is also a Sophia Lindauer born in Bridgewater, Somerset County, New Jersey on September 10, 1874 to "Louis and Mary Lindauer". This is most likely a baptism for this Sophia Lindauer who was born in Somerset or Franklin, New Jersey.


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