I'm so sorry its Frank Leo Aviles
According to his WWII "old men's" draft card, Frank was born in Colton, CA, which is in San Bernardino Co.
He served in the US Army during WWI in France. This is his departure record when he was returning to the US from France, probably in Feb 1919. His mother is listed as Clara Solis
There is a similar record when he departed the US for France on 15 Sept 1918. In this record his mother is listed as Clara Manfield. Ancestry.com - U.S., Army Transport Service Arriving and Departing Passenger Lists, 1910-1939
From Sep 1927- Apr 1929 he was in the Sawtelle National Home for Disabled Veterans. At the time he is listed as separated from his wife & his sister is listed as next of kin.
In 1900 Frank (listed as Francisco Aviley) is living with his grandmother, Merced Flores, in Colton CA.
In 1910 he is still living in Colton CA, but now with his mother Viola Manderfell.
Hi thank you so much for the records but I have all that on frank its confusing because he has three different names as mother but on his death certificate his mother is listed as Paula Mozia I wanted to see if there is any records of his parents I know their names but can't find anything and my grandmother Marie no record of her before the 1940 census I also know her parents names and place of birth but thats it I have a member ship on ancestry and I also use family search I've had two DNA test done but I've hit a brick wall with my maternal side and there is no one left to ask so whatever you suggest I would appreciate it thanks again.
So far I have not found anything on Maria/Marie Edwards, but did find a birth record that I think is for Frank Aviles. The birth is for a male (no name) 15 Jan 1893 in Colton, San Bernardino Co, CA. The parents are listed as Nicholas Avilen [sic] and Powla Moyella. second from bottom of this list:

Dear Ms. Kissinger,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1890 Census; the Population Schedules for the 1900 Census, and the Population Schedules for the 1910 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1920 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1930 Census, and the Population Schedules for the 1940 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) that may contain information about Frank Leo Aviles and Maria Ramona Edward Aviles in the state of California. The 1940 Census schedules are digitized and available using the Catalog. For more information about the non-digitized schedules, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at email@example.com.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
You mentioned that you located a record of your grandmother in the 1940 Census and you can use information from that document to possibly locate her in other decades. If you are not able to locate her specifically, you might be able to use the geographic information (Enumeration District No., street name, names of other residents on the same street) from the 1940 census to locate her on the 1930 census.
To help locate records for your grandmother Marie Edwards, we suggest that you contact the California State Archive to request a search for a marriage or death certificate. You may wish to note any name variants or broaden your search for the surrounding years. In addition, the FamilySearch Research wiki for California Vital Records may be helpful.
We suggest that you review NARA’s Resources for Genealogists, as well as the History Hub Blog titled Suggestions and Advice for Family History Researchers. Also, the FamilySearch Research wiki for California Genealogy may be useful.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
