Ada was buried on 6 January 1936 in Leavitt, Alberta, Canada. She has reference number 2N00-44. COMMENT: Surname seems odd: She is listed this way in the Pilling book, but the Ancestral File lists her father as shown here which would imply her maiden name could have been Carlsen. On the other hand her firstborn son has Wells as a given name. It may be that her mother was "moneyed", and in exchange for a generous legacy passed the maternal family name on.
