In the 1910 census, Helen is three, and is living in Pittsburgh, with quite an extended family all born in Pennsylvania to parents born in Pennsylvania. Click on the image below to enlarge it.

Percy's occupation is Manufacturer at the Iron + Steel Work. Most of his brothers also work at the Steel Co., except for John R. who works as an office manager at a Life Insurance Co. (Uncle Jack, as he was known, lived to be 102 years old, dying in 1984.) The census indicates that Percy owned the home free of mortgage.
Percy had one brother, William Edward, who died in childhood, and two other siblings who were married by 1910, Samuel Knox Hunter and Helen Rainey Hunter, for a total of ten siblings in that generation.
By 1920, Percy had moved, and the only brother still living with him and his family was Uncle Curt.
Going back another ten years to the 1900 federal census, I find Percy and Marguerite with only their first daughter, living in Allegheny, Pennsylvania.

Lines 79-81 show Percy E. Hunter, born Oct 1873, wife Marguerite L., born Aug 1876, and daughter, Marion L, born Sept 1899, living in Allegheny, on Broadway, owning his home free of mortgage. Percy works as a civil engineer. Percy's parents, James and Mary Hunter, happen to live in the same enumeration district (page 15A), on Perrysville Avenue, with all of their children listed above except for Harry M. L. Hunter, who appears to be in Margaretta, Erie County, Ohio, about 185 miles west of Pittsburgh.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, Allegheny City was annexed to Pittsburgh in 1907, so even though in 1900 this family is in Allegheny, and in 1910 they are in Pittsburgh, they are in the same neighborhood.
