Research Notes (source comments, unreliable information)

Ada is not mentioned in Edward's household in either 1920 or 1930. However, there are two likely alternate mentions:

The 1920 U.S. Census lists an Ada M. Lemke (8, b. in Minnesota) living with her aunt and uncle William and Agustina Lemke in Frazee, Becker County, Minnesota. Her father was born in Russia, her mother in Minnesota.

The 1930 U.S. Census lists an Ada Marks (18, b. in Minnesota) living with her aunt and uncle, William and Gustina Lemke in Frazee, Becker County, Minnesota. Her birth parents are noted as German. This would fit Emma's brother William, but the age in the census record is off by 10 years, though this is probably a recording error.

Could William be the brother of Ada's mother Emma, and this Ada be the same mentioned in these two records?
