Hello, I am not related. Hope this helps. Ruth P.
--------------
From what I found, it seems like Sophie's maiden name was indeed a Schmidt. She seems to have been a daughter of Edward & Matilda (Exel) Schmidt. Edward's parents were George Schmid and Mary Zuirsen Schmid. Matilda's parents were Martin Exel and Clara Theisen. Martin Exel's parents were Michael Exel and Catherine (Schneider, from Martin's 2nd marriage). Clara's parents were Piter Theison and Johannwell Theison.

This census was the starting point of all the rest of the information I found. John M. & Sophia Schmidt and their 2 children Delores & John were living with Sophia's mother and brother....

The next 4 census after the 1930 is Sophie's family...1920, 1910, 1905, and 1900.....

At first I was confused with this census. Wife was named Axle Schmidt. But I was sure I had the right family. It wasn't until after I found Edward & Matilda's marriage record that I realized that her maiden name must have been written in the census.....

This must have been the death of the child that Matilda mentions in the 1910 census (5 children, 4 living). This record shows the child's birthdate as 17 Sep 1903. But the next record shows that she was born 17 Sep 1902.

I am assuming that this is Sophie (Schmidt) Schmidt's birth record. The birthdate is exactly the same as you mentioned in your post. Maybe she was born Matilda, but used Sophie all her life.
