    According to Billy Edwards California death record, his mothers maiden name was Rosenfield. I found a 1920 census for a Billie Edwards that has a mother named Viola. I searched Viola and, according to a family tree, her maiden name was Rosenfield.

    The 1920 census has an user submitted correction of the name Billie to Bettie but, based upon what I found, I do not think the name Bettie is right.

    Confused on the 1930 census. I found this listing which fits.

    I also found this one which fits as well except the name is fixed from Billie to Lillie...

    I want to say the second one is the correct one.
