NOTES FROM SUBMITTER: "She was Ada C. Clapper, daughter of Stephen E. Clapper and wife Mary Jane Austin. There was no record found for children in her marriage to Albert H. Cipperley. In later years of their marriage her widowed mother lived with them for a time based on USC data.
Her Husband Albert H. Cipperley was the son of Nicholas H. Cipperley (1835-1914) and his wife Sarah M. (maiden name unknown). Because the Will identified her brother-in-law George and his children as heirs it is easy to confirm her husband's line of descent. Also because she identified female heirs with their married last names that helps to keep the female side of the line going. As in the case of many Probate files there was no copy of a death certificate in the file, and often multiple copies of the same document are found within these files."
