3.  1900 U.S. Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Russell E. RATCLIFF (æ 2, b. Dec 1897, OH) is living in Cincinnati, Hamilton Co., OH (p. 41A), with his parents, Charles E. RATCLIFF (æ 33, b. Feb 1867, OH) & Plessie M. (æ 28, b. Jun 1871, OH).  Margrett HASLUP (æ 10/12, b. Nov 1899, MD) is living at 1032 Hopkins Ave., Baltimore City, Baltimore Co., MD, with her parents (q.v.).

4.  1910 U.S. Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find Russell.  Margaret T. HASLUP (æ 10, b. MD) is living at 2125 N. Calvert Street, Baltimore City, MD, with her parents (q.v.).

5a.  1920 U.S. Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  there is a Russell RADCLIFF (æ 24, b. CA/FL/CA) boarding at 1803 Ellamont Avenue, Baltimore (Ward 15), MD (p. 255A), with the BIEN? family.  I wouldn't think this was our subject, except 1) I can't find him anywhere else, 2) he works for the Gas Company, and 3) his presence here would explain how he met Margaret.  As a boarder, there is no way he would have been the informant on this record, so we have to assume the head-of-household was guessing at the birthplaces for Russell, perhaps because these were places he had talked about having lived.  Checking Google Maps, his address is only about 3 miles from the HASLUP's home on Calvert Street.

5b.  1920 U.S. Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  I can't find Margaret.  Mary J. McMASTER (æ 8, b. NY) is living in New York City, New York Co., NY (p. 86B), with her parents, Angus McMASTER (æ 34, b. SCT) & Hannah A. (æ 38, b. SWE); she has no siblings.

Margaret appears to be saving face by calling herself "widowed," rather than "divorced."  There was a significant stigma associated with being divorced at that time, and my own grandmother did the same thing in the 1900 census (i.e., calling herself a widow when in fact she was divorced).
