Emma was born on April 30, 1902 according to family records and her SSDI.[1] She was the daughter of George (Szegyory) Sedory and Susanna Vanta.


Emma married Paul Hritz on October 27, 1925[2] (also according to family records).


On April 16, 1930, the US Census has "Emma; 27" and "Paul; 31" living with her father "George; 61" presumably in his home on S. Bloomington St. (not even the street name was recorded), "Vermillion City" (the official name at that time for South Streator) in "Reading Township" of "Livingston County, IL"[3]


The 1940 US Census has "Emma; 37" living at 2734 So. Keeler Ave, Ward 23, Block No. 42, Chicago, IL with her husband "Paul; 41" in April 1940.[4]


She passed away on December 16, 1995 according to family records and her SSDI[1], and was buried at the Hillcrest Memorial Park in Streator, IL.[5]

The enumerator appears to have corrected something to an "H"; which makes it difficult to read.]
