Most of the U.S. Census records are here- https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list#page=1&region=UNITED_STATES&recordType=Census

You can search FreeBMD for the marriage- it will be easier to find U.S. records with Mr/ Thomas' first name(s)- http://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl

Added- see that you've already asked for help finding the marriage:

Muffin,  glad to help, hope useful

1920 and 1930 --   not much was different.  To finish the thought,

They were living in Kirkland, NY during both census periods

1920  John 37  Alice 36  and son Clarence 6-11/12  with Louise Feather 55 and Clarencse Feather 24  working at Plush Mill.   

1930  John 47, Alice 47 and Charles 17 with Louise Feathers 66   
John is a "Beamer" and Alice a Weaver
