The following information was supplied by Find A Grave Contributor Rodney Welch (#47736114) on 30 June 2013:


Ada Wiggins Olive is on the same headstone as John David ‘Jake' Wiggins. I believe they are brother and sister.

Ada Wiggins is at home with her parents in 1920, listed as single, and there are no children named Olive.

Ada Wiggins Olive is the sister of Elihu, Jake and Bob as indicated in the 1930 census with 5 children named Olive.

All of the children could be Bessie's and EC Wiggins'.

Per the attached information from the Smith County TXGenWeb Project site, both Bessie and Ada married the same man. Bessie married Ely Claude Wiggins 3 Dec 1911 and died 1 Jul 1924. Ada married Ely Claude Wiggins 3 Dec 1926.

Please indicate on the memorial that Ada Wiggins Olive and John David ‘Jake' Wiggins are brother and sister

Thank you,
