This isn't my family, but I took a look at genealogy.com and found a 1910 census with Meredith WIDDOES (age 60) as proprietor of a rooming house; his wife is Amelia (age 45). The handwriting is terrible, but looks like the address might be 332 Kansas Street. I'll also take a look at a couple of other resources. In the meantime, try the Topeka Genealogical Society (PO Box 4048, Topeka KS 66604).
Meredith's birthplace wasn't listed, but Amelia was born in Iowa. I took a look at 1880 census at familysearch.org and found several WIDDOES families--among them one in Iowa and one in Kansas, plus others.
