  • Notes 


    • The 1931 Obituary Notice for Mrs. Sophie BAKER states that she is survived by an adopted daughter, Mrs. Howard RHODENHIZER. It would appear that Mrs. RHODENHIZER was May Celeste CHASE; however, in May's marriage record, Sophie and her husband Israel are not given as her paretns. So it would appear that she was eithera foster daughter or, as is more likely, someone who was "like a daughter" to the otherwise childless Israel and Sophie. [Bob H]
