In her obituary, The Dallas Morning News identified Ada Connor as one of Dallas' most prominent socialities of the 19th century. Mrs. Connor had lived in Dallas 62 years. She came to Dallas as a bride in 1879 from Nashville, Tennessee, where she was reared. During the ensuing years she helped lay some of the present-day Dallas society.
Her husband was mayor of Dallas for three terms during the 1880s and 1890s.
She was one of 33 women who organized the Shakespeare Club in the parlor of the old Grand Windsor Hotel. Mrs. Connor played the piano and sang for the club in its earliest days.
Her husband built what was said to have been the first brick home in South Dallas. At the time of her death, the site was occupied by Butler Brothers (a wholesale business).
