Donna,

There are many census records for folks in these families, but since this web site is for Lithuanian genealogy, I'm curious why you are posting a request here.

Aside from Anna Reddy's family of origin, for which there are census entries for 1900, 1910, 1920 and 1930 -- all in Phillipsburg, NJ. Her father appears to have died sometime between 1920 and 1930, when her mother was living with her daughter and Anna's sister, Mary Whalen, Mary's husband, James, and their 2 children. Also living with the Whalens in 1930 was Anna's unmarried brother, John, age 38.

In 1930, Anna's brother Phillip, then age 31, was living in Phillipsburg with his wife, Helen R., age 28. The had no children at the time. He was working as a weaver in a silk mill.

In 1920, Morris Reddy, age 32, Anna's brother, was living in Phillipsburg at 6 Stewart Place with his wife Katherine, age 28, born in the Irish Free State, arriving in the U.S. in 1908. Their children were Mary, 5, Cecilia, 4, Anna, 2 years and 9 months, and Maurice, age 1 year and 2 months. He was working as a railroad car repairman.

In 1930, Morris Reddy was living with his wife Catherine in Phillipsburg with their children:
Mary, 16
Cecilia, 14
Anna, 13
Phillip, 10
Catherine, 6
Rita, 3 years and 4 months

In 1930 in Easton, PA, Harry C. Baumeister, age 32, born in Pennsylvania, married at age 23, working as a paymaster in a cement company, was living at 344 Brod Road? with his wife, Anna (Reddy), age 36, and their children Kathlene, age 8, and Harry C., Jr., age 4 years and 7 months.

At the same time but at #346 on the same road (difficult to read), was living Harry Baumeister, age 60, born in Pennsylvania, married at age 26, was working as a gardener for a private family. His wife, Bertha, age 59, was born in Germany, arrived in the U.S. in 1872 or 1892 (difficult to decipher). They had two children: Raymond, age 29, single, and Carl F., age 22 single.

Because the names are easily to get right, it is likely that there are other records for these and other members of the family. Tracing the whereabouts of the women is difficult without knowing their husband's names.
