Sullivan and Susan McGuire.(source:1900 US Census) **Subsequent census state Elizabeth was born in New York** IN 1900 the family was living at 27 Hudson Dr. #2C, Jersey City, Ward 1, New Jersey. Elizabeth had one biological brother Leo Sullivan and James Whalen (half), Harriet Whalen (half), and several half siblings from her mother's first marriage to Steven Whalen.
In 1905, I have her living in Hudson, New Jersey with her parents and brother. (source: 1905 NJ State Census)
She married William Weber on 42 Oct 1913 at the U.S., Dutch Reformed Church in Jersey City, New Jersey.(source: U.S., Dutch Reformed Church Records in Selected States, 1639-1989) She was living at 212 Wayne Street, Jersey City, New Jersey when she was married. She was 17 years old and he was 20 years old on their wedding day. (source: U.S., Dutch Reformed Church Records in Selected States, 1639-1989) They had two children Harriet Catherine and Elizabeth Frances. They were born 13 years apart. I was informed that there were children born ever year in between but I can not find proof as of yet.
In 1920 they were living at 80 Monmouth Street, Jersey City, New Jersey with Leo and James. (source:1920 Us Census).
In 1930, they were living at 1129 Hopkins Ave #4, Jersey City, New Jersey with Leo and both girls. (source:1930 US Census)
In 1940, they were living at 14 Skillman Ave, Jersey City, New Jersey with both girls.
Elizabeth never worked as was normal for the time. She stayed home with the girls. She was sickly according to my grandmother (her daughter).
She died 5 Feb 1942 in Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey. (source: Prayer card from her funeral) She is buried at the Holy Cross Cemetery in North Arlington, Bergen County, New Jersey. (source: U.S., Find A Grave Index, 1600s-Current)

**I am missing her birth certificate and baptismal information.
I can not find the 1910 US census for the entire family. I have looked in other countries and still haven't found anything. Most obvious country to look at would be Ireland.
