My sincere thanks to both Judy and Ron for your interest in this family.I am overwhelmed that both of you should have taken the time to do this investigation.
I have found some additional information on them, but unfortunately nothing after 1910.This is what I have.
Frank Roberts filed a lawsuit against his sister Jennieand her husband John E. Colwell on Feb, 14, 1907 claiming that he had sold them 160 acres for $800.The Colwell's had never paid off the mortgage and interest of 10% per annum, and they were cutting and selling timber from the property.Frank prevailed in the lawsuit.

This seems to fit except for the state of birth of father, however, he may not have known where is father was born.
(I don't know if this is the same person)

As far as Edith is concerned I have one possibility.She married Frances Brooks, but it may have been a short marriage and she could have remarried.I found this information.

I found this census record.Not everything fits.For instance, middle initial, age at first marriage, and parents birth places. etc.Have to do further checking. This is a stretch.
1930 Census San Diego Twp.,San Diego, CA
24 Linda Vista Precinct
Godfrey Poggi, head, owns property, owns radio, lives on farm, M. W. 42, mar. age at 1st marriage 35, NY, Italy, Italy, Poultry Farmer

Bernard A. Hughes, lodger, W. M. 45, S., Texas, T. T., laborer, gen. farm.
This is as far as I have gotten.It seems strange that there is no further record of this family beyond what we found so far.
Again, thanks to you both for your help.
