Ardath's mother passed away in 1906, and Ardath and her twin sister Arlie were adopted out. Ardath's name at birth was Artie, and her sister's name was Earlie.

Ardath's other brothers and sisters include Thomas Franklin Pounds, Hans Allen Pounds, James William Pounds, Amanda Elizabeth Pounds, and two younger brothers. They too were adopted and became John "Jack" Newland and Keith Foreman.
