Per a note received in 2001,from Sue Clavin of Colorado Springs, CO:
Ada M. Boyles had married twice, her first husband was Claude Forsyth Perkins, who was born in Sioux City, IA in 1859 and died in NYC in 1941. They had no children.
Ada was one of four children of James Curran Boyles.
Sue thinks Ada met Charles in Searchlight, NV, circa 1910, when he was a gas engineer and she was a clerk in the Post Office; "Claude was the Postmaster; Claude and Ada married c. 1899-1900 when she was living in Meckling, SD; Claude was more than 20 years older than Ada; they later divorced."
I believe that Claude and Ada were beckoned to Searchlight, NV by Claude's younger brother Henry A. Perkins who was living in Los Angeles. Henry went to California in 1897, and he was very adventurous and went to seek his fortune in a couple different places in the early 1900s. They obviously went to Searchlight NV to make their fortunes in the gold mines.
>From the South Dakota birth records, it lists an Ada Boyles born on Oct 23, 1880. She was born in Hutchinson County. Her Mother is listed as Sarepla Carolina Haynes and her Father as James Curran Boyles.

J. C. BOYLES, Clerk of the Court, Olivet, was born in Dubois County, Indiana, in 1851, where he resided until 1864, when he settled in Illinois. In 1874 he came to Dakota, locating in Hutchinson County. The county having few settlers there
was plenty of vacant land, and Mr. Boyles secured 320 acres near the town of Olivet, working on his land in the summer and teaching winters, up to 1877, having taught the first school in Hutchinson County. He now has his place in a
high state of cultivation. In 1875 at the first session of court in the county, he was appointed Clerk of the Court, which position he has held continuously since, with credit to himself and satisfaction to the people. In the summer of
1883 he was chosen a delegate to the Huron convention for the purpose of calling a constitutional convention to draft a constitution for the coming State of Dakota. September 4, 1878, he was united in marriage to Miss Carrie Havnes
[Haynes? - JRF]. They have three children - Ada, Ida, and Joseph C.
