I did find some information on the censuses, but not much about Albert Mathews. Information in the censuses about birthplace and parents' birthplaces keeps changing.
1930 CENSUS - Dover, Morris Co., NJ - District 18 - ED 15

Elene Mathews 8F Dau b PA father b NY mother b NJ
Albert 7 M Son b PA father b NY mother b NJ

If Albert were 41 in 1930, he would have been born about 1889 rather than 1899.
In the 1900 Census, Caroline ("Carrie") Wire Clawson and her two children are living with her parents Alonzo and Marsha Wire in Hackettstown, NJ. She is listed as married instead of widowed or divorced, but there is no husband around. By the 1910 census, Lena's parents Carrie and Unknown Clawson were divorced.

New Jersey and New York are the two worst states for obtaining family information. None of the records are public and you have to request them personally - there is a fee. Here is the contact information: http://www.state.nj.us/health/vital/index.shtml
