A lot of 1910 suffers from terrible imaging. It looks like the original sheet moved up on the right side while it was being filmed and produced double imaging.
Here's my best shot at figuring in out:
ages: John 45; Elizabeth 40
yrs married: not a clue; the consensus guess is 15, with 14 written first, then the 4 crossed out replaced by 5
any children: 1 child, 0 living
year of entry to america: no guess
where born: IRE, IRE, IRE for both and parents
BUT . ..
1920 fills in some of the blanks
Living at 339 E. 30th Street, Manhattan
Costigan, John - head
male, white, 55, married, immigrated 1889, naturalized 189(9?)
b. IRE, both parents b. IRE, street cleaner - city
Costigan, ELizabeth - wife
female, white, 52, married, immigrated 1892, naturalized 1897
b. IRE, both parents b. IRE
And this clinches it . . .
