Mogk's in New York

I have a Maria Mogk married to Henry Schmidt. They had 4 children, she must have died and he remarried and had 5 more children. I dont know much about Maria except her name. I found that on my g grandfathers SS application. I think she died sometime between 1891 and 1894 in New York. I did find a maria Mogk on the 1870 census but Im not sure its my maria. I dont know her birthdate but the maria on the 1870 census is about the same age as her husband, Henry Schmidt, so this could be her. Her parents on the census are listed as William age 51 and Eliza age 43. Siblings are:
William age16
August age 14
George age 8
Maria age 6
margaretha age 4

They are all born in Hesse-darmstadt, germany. I found her brother august on later census's and it says he immigrated in 1867. I cant find any other family members on any other census. I dont have access to the 1900 or 1910 so I havent checked those. someone not related emailed me and said they found a death notice in the NY times dated March 3, 1909 for Elizabeth Mogk age 83 of 20 st., brooklyn looks like she died Feb. 28th. There is another death notice for a James Savage who's wife is Margaret (nee Mogk). I think this could be maria's sister. I also found on the LDS site an IGI individual record that has Margaret A. Mogk b. germany married to James Savage, marriage date is April 5, 1896 in Manhatten, NY. Her parents are listed as William Mogk and Elizabeth Noll. IF anyone has info on this family who could maybe help me either prove or disprove that this Maria is my gg grandmother, please contact me. Thanks.
