In 1900 Census, James moves the family to Quincy Massachusetts where he rents an apartment on 113 Beach Street. He working as a salesman, Harriet was keeping house and Lilith is going to school.

Then on the 29th of July 1904 her mother dies in Greenfield, New Hampshire and was buried in Francestown, NH she was 54 years old, so at the age of 14 Lilith has lost her maternal side of her family.

In 1910 we see that James and Lilith have moved to a residence on 22 Pinckney Street, Boston, MA and they are two of 11 Lodgers living at this address which was located in Beacon Hill. James is a salesman for a dry goods store and Lilith has no entry for either school or work. The listed head of the residence is an Adelaide C. F. Lord and he has no listed occupation.

Her entry for work is "none". The listed head of the residence once again Adelaide C. F. Lord and he has no listed occupation.
