Is she definitely still alive in 1901?
If you do not know who her parents are, what is your connection to her?


Marian Report 25 Feb 2013 22:10

Hello Patchem, I was wondering if Mary Jane might have been her mother.

If Mary jane was her mother she could have been married by 1901and changed Ada's surname.

possible marriage of couple in 1891 ( only married 4 years so one of them would be a step grandparent.)

There is a son wih surname Raine in 1891 ( son-in-law also meant stepson)
