I believe this is the same Edwin Delos Fargo.

The following information is what I know of Edwin Delos Fargo, his wife Ada and son Edwin.

Edwin Delos Fargo was born on 26 Dec 1857 in Busti, New York. Ada Jane Hauser was born in Barkerville, British Columbia, Canada on 29 Sep 1887. Edwin and Ada were married on 24 Feb 1904 in Barkerville, British Columbia, Canada. Edwin Jr., Fargo was born on 26 Mar 1907 in British Columbia, Canada.

Ada J. Fargo enters the United States in February 1918 at Marcus, Washington. Edwin Delos Fargo and son
Edwin entered the US together, in March 1918. Port of Entry is also Marcus, Washington.

On 30 April 1918, Edwin Delos signed a “Letter of Intention” to become a citizen of the United States. He states he was born in Busti, NY but had been residing in BC, Canada. He states in this letter that he has been residing in the US since 10 May 1916.

Edwin Delos and his wife Ada and son Edwin, are shown living together in Spokane, Washington in the 1920 Federal Census. He is 62, Ada is 34 and Edwin is 12 years of age.

Edwin Delos Fargo died of pneumonia in October 1920. His Death Certificate states that he and Ada were married at the time of his death.

On January 27, 1923 in Spokane, Washington, Ada marries Verne Jesse Walker. Both Ada and Verne are 35 years old at the time of their marriage.

In the 1930 Federal Census, Ada is found with a new husband, Verne J. Walker. Ada’s son Edwin, age 23, also lives in the home.
