Ella signed her mother's widow's pension application as Ella M. Schneider. She indicated that she has been an "acquaintance" of her for 15 years. If this "Ella" is indeed her daughter, she would be 21. This discrepancy is possibly explained by the legal notion of "an age of awareness" of 6 years. It should be noted that a cosigner of the application is Ada M. Helms, another daughter.
See notes on her husband, William Schneider.
