I found an Elaine N. Edwards b. 3 June 1916, Last Residence=Boise, Ada Co., Idaho who died 25 May 1988. Her soc. sec. # was assigned in Idaho in 1955. Source: Social Security Death Index, Ancestry.

You can request a copy of her obituary at Random Acts Genealogical Kindness. Go to, read guidelines, choose Idaho, choose Ada Co. and choose one volunteer.

A Norah Sophia Edwards was Registered=1910, April, May or June, District=Portsmouth, County=Hampshire, Volume 2b. Source: England & Wale Free BMD Birth Index 1837-1915, London, England, General Register Office, Ancestry.

Really need more information about their time in the U.S. Successful Searching!

Norah S. Edwards, born 1910, dau of William S. Edwards, 1888-1924 in England, and Sophia Dixon, 1890-1920 in England.
Spouse: James Goldie, marriage about 1932/1933.
She left Southampton for Quebec on the ship Minnedosa on 14 Sep 1922.
--I searched the shipmanifest records for Canada for the ship Minnedosa, but no record identified for arrival 1922.

Aline Mabel Edwards, born Mar 1912 in Portmouth Hampshire, England, died 1977 in Canada.
She married in 1937 in the Montreal (Anglican Christ Church Cathedral) Quebec.

You will have to identify what data you have concerning their departure from Canada into the USA. The connection to "Dr. Barnado" of London. And, specifically what is the connection to Butte County, Idaho.
