Notes: Marriage

As a widow, in the 1911 census, Ada stated that she had been married 30 years. As her husband had died in 1908, this may indicate a marriage date of about 1878. Alternatively, if calculated from 1911, it would indicate a marriage in about 1881. The marriage has not been found in either time period.
