Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

FOLLOWUP

Ada is not mentioned in Edward's household in either 1920 or 1930. However, there are two likely alternate mentions. (1) The 1920 U.S. Census for Frazee, Becker County, Minnesota, lists an Ada M. Lemke (8, b. in Minnesota) living with her uncle and aunt, William and Agustina Lemke. Her father was born in Russia, her mother in Minnesota. (2) The 1930 U.S. Census for Frazee, Becker County, Minnesota, lists an Ada Marks (18, b. in Minnesota) still living with her uncle and aunt, William and Gustina Lemke. However, her birth parents are noted as German. The uncle would fit Emma's brother William, but the age in the census record is off by 10 years, though this could be a recording error.

Ada may have died 29 Jul 1974 in Norman County, Minnesota. (From the Minnesota Death Certificate index, Minnesota Historical Society. Certificate #1974-MN-020664.)
