In the 1920 census for Maidie it's hard to make out the name of the last child. It looks like the census taker had a bad pen. He wrote J-o which is very faint as though he ran out of ink. So he dipped his pen and made a tall dark -s, maybe his elbow was joggled, then wrote u-a and remembered (or was reminded - too late) that Joshua has an h so he ended with that. And then the initial D.

Cross-checking the name in we find Joshua David born 1913 (when his father was 80).
