    Research:
    • Ada and Cecil were both issued Social Security numbers from the state of Arizona. This is somewhat mysterious, but perhaps might have been accomplished during a winter stay there. Alternatively, one might speculate that during the 1930s and the Depression, they may perhaps have spent some time there and received their cards at that point.
