Sam and Sophie married in Europe and emigrated before 1909. Sam traveled first and Sophie emigrated with their eldest daughter, Sadie or Shirley (who had been born about 1905).[1]

In the New York City, Sam and Sophie had: Isidore (b. ca. 1909), Pauline (b. ca. 1910), Ida (b. ca. 1912) and Noah (b. ca. 1918). 

Sophie's grave is in Momtefiore Cemetery, Queens, NY, First Lubiner Progressive Benevolent Association plot, block 89, gate 156N, line 7L, grave 3. Sam's grave is also in block 89, gate 156N. Beyond that, I have not been able to tell the cemetery's designation for his grave.
