Linda,
In the 1920 & 1930 census Arthur & Essie Smith were in Willet, Cortland Co. I couldn`t find them in either county in 1910 but in 1900 Arthur is living with Cyrenus & Emma Rowe in Willet. He is 21 then & listed as stepson to Cyrenus. I`ll type up the 1920 census below. I only have access to the 1930 every name index but that census looks about the same as the `20. There were no additional children then, but Gladys & Leon were no longer living at home. You can check the transcribed 1880 census at:

There are three Arthur Smiths born in 1879 in Cortland Co. on the 1880. I don`t live in Cortland Co, so can`t tell you where the Smith`s farm was. The census does not give a street name.
