Elinor Sachs Barr (born 1894)
- Born - June 10 1894 (see discussion below)
- Death - 1990 (March 23) ( https://www.findmypast.com/transcript?id=US/TRIB/009865910 )
- PARENTS - Daughter of Samuel Sachs and Fay Sachs
- MARRIAGE - Husband of David S Barr (born 1894)
- CHILDREN :
- OTHER FAMILY :
- Profession -
Eleanor (or Elinor Barr) - Conflicts of birth dates and name spelling on federal records
Two death certificates :
- Eleanor Barr ; June 16 1896 to Sep 1979 ( https://www.findmypast.com/transcript?id=US/TRIB/005839593 ) - Nyack, NY
- Elinor Barr : 10 Jun 1894 to 23 Mar 1990 ( https://www.findmypast.com/transcript?id=US/TRIB/009865910 ) - New York City
- Elinor is age 26 on a 17 Feb 1922 wedding to David S Barr.. and born in 1895 (some forums suggest 1896, but we know with certainty her brother Joseph was born in 1896)
- A June 16 1895 birthday would make her () on a January 1910 census
So the "Elinor Sachs" on the wedding certificate that marries David Barr on Feb 17 1922 ... is birthday-matched with the death certificate for "Eleanor Barr" ( June 16 1896 to Sep 1979 )
Also note : from the Alexander Sachs notes from FDR Library (at Marist College )

1910 - US Census for "Sacks" family
- "Sacks" not "Sachs"
- Older brother Alexander Sachs (born 1892) still has name "Samuel" (not yet changed to "Alexander")
- 38 (or 40?) west 117th street - Right next to 1915 address
- Oldest brother Herman Alexander Sacks (born 1885) immigrated to the USA in 1901, 3 years before his siblings
- Sadly, mother Sarah must have passed (father "Sundel" is widowed)
- Father here is "Sundel", not "Samuel" ... ???
- "Elinor" is here as "Lena"
