Notes for Ada May HOLLINGSWORTH:Also known as: Ada White
Ada's father's surname was given as Hollingsworth at the time she married James, so we assume that she'd been married before as the entry in the register has her as Eddie White and also states that she'd been married once before.
See Ada's Certificate of Death
