Notes: Wesley Howard Sanford (1863-1938) appears living in Jersey City, Hudson, New Jersey in the 1905 New Jersey census and all subsequent censuses. This would be 33 years. In the 1875 New York census he is living in Kingston, Ulster, New York. He has not been found in the 1880 or 1900 censuses yet, so he may have lived in Jersey City earlier.
