I found travel records of her leaving to go to the US 8 months before she gave birth:
October 24, 1914 - Line 30 - Entering the USA, via Port Huron Michigan, She paid for her own ticket, has $55 and has never been to the US before. Her next of kin is her mother, Mrs. Charles Empey of Dickinson's Landing, she is listed as age 27, stenographer. Height 5 ft, Dark complexion, brown hair, brown eyes. She is traveling to visit a friend Mrs. A. Carter 1727 E Sprague, Spokane Washington.
Mina Sarah Empey, is the daughter of Charles Ira Empey and Elizabeth Carter.
Charles Ira Empey (her Daddy) is the son of William Empey and Mary Cline.

By comparing the 1891 and 1901 census and the ages of the children in that family, it appears that Mina and Sarah were the same person. In the 1901 census, the date of birth shown to Sarah is May 6th 1886.

Can anyone help me find out the names of her children - ANY info on her children would be amazing,
as well as where Mina is buried and when she died. I have found her in the 1940's voters list, but I can't find her after that. So my assumption is she may have died in the early 1940's. But to find specifics and where she is buried is impossible.
Thank you so much!
