American twin sisters who were the daughters of Oliver Hardy's step-sister, Elizabeth Tant Sage and her husband Ira Yale Sage Jr.  They had another older brother, Ira Yale Sage III (1902-1980).  Both sisters mainly lived in Georgia, where they headed back to after their brushing with Hollywood.

MARY - Between 1930-1937, she married William Olin Adcock (1901-1989); they had at least three children.

MARGOT - From the 1940 Census onward, she had adopted the middle name "Yale" (a la her father).  By 1940 she was living with Emily Hardy (Ollie's mother) and Elizabeth in Atlanta and was working as a saleslady in a retail store.  She evidently never married.
