Other children for Alfred & Ada?
The Birth registration for Sidney D shows his mother's maiden name as "Johnson". We are currently assuming that this is an error, although
a family member shows Ada's mother's maiden name as 'Johnson'. Was Ada illegitimate & thus also 'Ada Johnson'?
There are two other children (currently 'orphans') who might fit here:
Annie E Darnley mother: Johnson Birmingham R.D., Warwickshire vol. 6d p.324 1919 2Q
Ernest Darnley mother: Johnson Wolverhampton R.D. , Staffordshire vol. 6b p.1250 1922 1Q.
