Name: Rosa Martha Summerfield
Date of Registration: Jul-Aug-Sep 1872
Registration district: Spalding
Inferred County: Lincolnshire
Volume: 7a
Page: 341

Birth certificate will give her mother's maiden surname.

A tree on Ancestry has

Rosa Martha Summerfield
Birth July 1872 in Lincolnshire, United Kingdom
Death 14 Jul 1966 in Iowa, United States

Father Amos Summerfield
Mother Emma Shreeves

The only sources for Rosa's birth are census records so probably only the purchase of her birth certificate will prove who her mother was.

Your post makes no sense at all

No-one can help you if you don't post coherent messages

And you never seem to acknowledge help which is given, anyway
