I can't read the town (something -burg), but Edmund's passenger list says he was going to join his sister Mrs. Bailey in Bergen Co., New Jersey.

Edmund Harry 26 Baker (is this Edmund Henry Greathead?) :-*

I think he may well be, although the name on the 1910 Census looks like Harris to me.  His immigration date is given as 1904 on there, which matches up with Edmund.

WWI Draft Registration Card
Edmund Henry Harris
120 27th St., Guttenburg, Hudson Co., New Jersey
Age 39, born 16 Dec. 1878
Alien non-declarant, citizen of England
Occupation - kitchen helper, St. Regis Restaurant, 1460 Broadway, New York
Nearest relative - Mrs. Bialy (sister), 120 27th St., Guttenburg, Hudson Co., New Jersey

I also found a WWI Draft Registration Card for William Whitehouse, born 17 Jan. 1878, living at 120 27th St., Guttenburg, and listing his nearest relative as Mrs. Amy Greathead at the same address.

On the 1910 Census, it says that Harry & Amy had been married for 20 years.  Amy was the mother of 4 children, all of whom were living.  They immigrated in 1900, and it says Harry had filed his first papers for naturalizations.

In the 1920 Census, it says that they immigrated in 1893 and were naturalized in 1912.

WWI Draft Registration Card 5 Jun. 1917
Edward Bertram Bailey
120 27th, Guttenburg, Hudson Co., New Jersey
Born 25 Jun. 1895 in West Bromwich, England
Alien, citizen of England
occupation:  pearl button maker
employer:  McCarthy Bros., 15 St., West New York, New Jersey
Single, no dependents, no prior military service
Caucasian, medium height, stout build, blue eyes, black hair

This appears to have Edward & his wife on the 1930 Census:  https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/X4XH-7MD  Based on their ages at first marriage, they married around 1925.  Mary was born in Austria, and immigrated in 1923.  Edward was naturalized, working as a button maker, and not a veteran.

I don't seem to see Amy & Harry on the 1930 Census.  Maybe someone else will have better luck?
