      The 1900 Census shows that Emma had given birth to a child but none were still living. The 1910 Census shows that Emma had givenbirth to 3 children but only Everett was still living. Very little is known about these other two children.

      Also living with Joseph and Emma in 1900 were Joseph's brothers Adelard and Julius.

      By the 1920s and in the 1930 Census, Joseph, Emma, son Everett, and Everett's family all lived in one house. Both Joseph and Everett were recorded as owning a house worth $25,000, but it is unclear exactly which one of them owned the house at 121 Maple Street.
