I have found the 3 single Anderson siblings in the 1900 census:  Mary, Leticia [Lillian] and John lived at 717 Eutaw Street, presumably the family residence.  Their mother, Elizabeth Jane [Spence] Anderson had died several months earlier [March 1900].  It appears they were renting, if I read the census correctly.  If so, the Andersons rented their house for years - the 1890 Baltimore City Directory shows the same address as their residence.

In 1910 John lived with a married sister [Teresa McCormick]; Lillie died in 1905; Mary has not yet been found in the censuses.  However, if that is she buried in 1939 in the family plot, she had quite a few  years in which to have married a Frank Barker - though she would have been 44 years or older when she married.  Then of course she would have had to divorce him [or perhaps be widowed] before being interred as an Anderson...
