Family - Sarah Jane Madden

June 1861 Albany, NY - Between 1920 & 1930 New York, NY

Sarah was the youngest daughter of James and Mary.   In 1884 she married Winfield Scott Morris and they settle in New York City where Winfield was listed as a furniture buyer and later a commercial traveler dealing with furniture.

Little information has been found about Sarah and Winfield, beyond the fact that they continued to live in New York City.  I have no pictures, no stories, no memories.  Perhaps locating the family of Winfield would help.  He is the son of Isaac (bn Germany) and Martha (bn NY) and he had two younger sisters Elizabeth (Eliza) and Frances (Franke).  His father died in Albany sometime between 1870 and 1880.

Sarah died sometime between 1920 and 1930 when Winfield  a widower is paying $150 rent for an apartment at 35 Wadsworth Ave in New York and his sister-in-law Helen (Nellie) is living with him.
