Sarah Annie Izzard UK, Schenectady and Bath on Hudson NY

Looking for any one with information on Sarah Annie Izzard, first wife Edwin A Billings. Listed as Annie Izzard on first son Edwin Howard Billings' birth certificate 1887 Schenectady, NY. Listed as Sarah Annie Izzard on youngest daughter Greta Lorraine's birth certificate in 1897, Bath on Hudson, Rensselaer NY. According to her age listing on both birth certificates, her estimated birth date would be circa 1864. There are at least 3 Sarah Annie Izzards in the UK that match, but I believe her to be Sarah Izzard of Crewe, Cheshire, UK.
1900 census Watervliet NY lists Edwin Howard as a widower, consistent with family oral history. According to family history, Sarah died of lung cancer or consumption in an institution and would sing hymns to the patients. I could not locate her in the NY State Archive death files. I believe the death occurred in 1898-99, since the city directory shows a move from Bath on Hudson to Watervliet. Any help appreciated.
