There is a Lizzie Averill who married a man named White in Pa in the 20s or 30s, I forget now. Too early here to start working on it.

As for Lillian Everall with Julia Waterson boarding in Phila in 1930, I thought it might be Lizzie also. You don't know if it was the landlady who gave the information.

?
1934 Pasadena City Directory
John (Eliz) White home at 174 S Berkeley Avenue

?
1936 California Voter Registration
Bell City, Los Angeles County
John B White, 320 W 5th, a waiter
Mrs Lily E White, 320 W 5th, a waitress
both registered Democrats         

it looks like there were 5 ladies by that name in Los Angeles County in 1936. 4 married, 1 single.

That looks like Lily/Lizzie in 1936 so her death was after that. Thank you oldohiohome.

If this is the right couple - John B rather than James B ?  - California, U.S., Voter Registrations - 1940 - shows that same couple John B White (waiter) and Lily E White (waitress) - 2422 N Sichel Street. LA

California, U.S., Voter Registrations - 1944 shows Lily E White (waitress)  414 N Ave 50

Hard to be sure John B and James B are the same person but he is with Lily E so maybe.
