BRABANT
Emil, age 54, fireman, railroad, married, born Northern Canada father born Northern Canada mother born Unknown

Perry, age 21, laborer, odd jobs, son, born Montana father born Northern Canada mother born MO

obviously Emil was not married, but widowed but again census are often wrong

I looked for a Sarah born about 1903 Montana and living in Bannock Co. Idaho and there is only one - in Pocatello

********

1940 BENICIA, SOLANO, CALIFORNIA
BRABANT
Perry, age 30, truck driver, born Montana in Pocatello ID in 1935

KING
Sarah, age 37, sister, married, born Montana, in Sacramento California in 1935

ERICKSON
Theodore, age 17, nephew, born ID in Pocatello, ID in 1935

Gertrude, age 15, niece, born ID in Sacramento, California in 1935

HOPE
Russie, age 40, border, divorced, born Montana, in same place in 1935

** I included the boarder in case he is somehow related ??

so I guess this confirms that it was the right Sarah in 1930

*** Halvor/Halver Erickson (1st husband of Sarah) is still in Pocatello ID in 1940 and with him is a new wife and new children but also eldest son Edgar is with him - age 19
eldest of children with new wife is age 7 so he and Sarah must have been divorced at some point before 1933 and it seems both remarried

Sarah must have married for a 3rd time as I found her death which shows her as Hope - I wonder if she married Russie who is in 1940 census with them??
