You didn't mention Martha/Mary remarried, you will need to look for her death certificate under that name. Are you sure her maiden name was White? Her daughter marries a White.

I do not have access to online census index for 1930 in LA. Your local Family History Center has a subscription to Ancestry.com and you can use their computer to search Ancestry, which has an every name index for the 1930 census.
Happy Hunting (^_^)
