Ada was using Elizabeth on the 1911 census in Quebec.
http://automatedgenealogy.com/census11/View.jsp?id=118643&highlight=36&desc=1911+Census+of+Canada+page+containing+Elizabeth+Baker

Son Russell born 1907 on this census as well as Beatrice.

Haven't found Russel's birth or Ada's marriage but did find a marriage for Russell
June 1, 1938 Russell Joseph Baker son of Alfred John Baker and Elizabeth Fincham married Margaret Murphy .

You can always use the free genealogy search function at this cemetery to check for burials.  Someone else on the list might know of other online sites for Montreal cemeteries.

I have a family tree for Alfred John Baker, born 1865 in Chelmsford, who emigrated to Canada in 1902. He lived with Ada Elizabeth Fincham in the St Laurent district Montreal, and had three children, Russell, born 1907, Beatrice, born 1909, and Florence, born 1912.  There is a photograph of the gravestone commemorating both Ada, died 1948, and Alfred John, died 1951, in Montreal.  I would like to establish the Fincham family connection in Norfolk, and explore further descendants in Canada.
