Patti, while searching for additional information for you, I discovered that you have a tree at Ancestry that includes Dollie's correct parents and grandparents. I suppose then, that nothing posted here so far is particularly useful to you.  Would you mind expanding your question to say exactly what information you are looking for?
I can't get into my account through ancestry.com. could you please provide me with the parents and grandparents of my grandmother dollie mae? And thank u for realizing that i was the one who had made their profile in the first place.

Ada was previously married to a man named Vanderson.  Willie married Mrs Ada Vanderson in Montague County in 1917:
