William Charles Weber was my great grandfather who was born on 22 Jul 1894 in Jersey City, New Jersey to Frederick Herman Weber and Harriet "Kate" Stone(s). At age 6 he lived in Jersey City Ward 10, Hudson County, New Jersey with his parents (Source: 1900 US Census) By 1910 his father Fred has passed away and his mother Kate had remarried to Daniel Miler b.about 1854. Which for a long time was a mystery as to where he went. At age 16 in 1910 he, his siblings and his mother had moved to Jersey City Ward 12, Jersey City, New Jersey. where his is listed as a step-son on the 1910 Census. (source: 1910 US Census).
 His siblings were Edgar Charles Weber, Edith A. Weber, John Albert Weber, and Harry Miller and Evelyn Miller. 

In 1912 he married Elizabeth Sullivan, he was  20 and she was 17. By 1920 they were living in Jersey City, New Jersey in the 5th Ward (Source:1920 Census) with their daughter Harriet who was 6 at the time. William Weber was 25 and Elizabeth was 24. They were living with her brother Leo Sullivan 23 and her step brother James Whalen 46. They lived in Jersey City until approximately 1942 when Elizabeth died. They had one child a year but only two survived. Harriet and Elizabeth Frances. When Elizabeth Frances was 13 in 1942  prior to her 14th birthday her mother passed away.  I was told at some point before I was born, both sisters, their father and their families all lived in the same house on Parva Pl in Cliffwood Beach.
