Jasmine,
Although you've been a "member" since 2005, this appears to be your first Rootsweb message, at least under this user name. There is so many ways to obtain information on various persons you seek, US Census, State records, books, etc. I reviewed your posted family tree and see very little information about these persons. I'd suggest beginning with your own family and begin detailed information on your family tree. Identify birth and death records, obtain obituaries, etc. I'll provide a bit of information to first add to and correct information provided:
The 1930 Census of Janesville, Rock County, Wisconsin, enumerated April 11th.
