 Rollie & Edward are listed as sons and should be listed as brothers. George (Alex's brother) is listed but has the info for James (Alex's son) who is not listed.  Possibly the census taker started listing info for George and finished with info for James.

Mae wasn't living with either parent in 1930 - she is listed as a ward of Iver & Thora Johnson.  Alfred was living in Mountrail County, North Dakota in 1930. Robert and Vivian were "adopted" by A. and Myrtle Wiedenhoft and were living in Cass Co., North Dakota.

Mollie eventually moved to California, presumably to be near her sons, Robert and James, where she stayed until her death.  Alexander moved, again, to North Dakota where he remained until he was tragically killed in a fire.
