I haven't seen the full transcription, but have seen that Jacob was still living in Niagara Falls at the 1910 census:

The 1920 census return shows Jacob and his family living at Niagara, New York:
Jacob N Barthaw Head Mar 67 New York
Cartherine Barthaw Wife Mar 63 New York
Howard Francis Son 31 New York
Paul Francis Son 23 New York
Kathleen Francis Daur 21 New York

These names were taken from a transcription of the census, and the surnames of the children Howard, Pauil and Kathleen is given as "Francis" I suspect it was a simple transcription error. I suspect the son we have as Francis, may have been "Howard Francis", and the transcriber mistook Francis at the surname for the other two.
