Noticed some other kind researcher has already taken the time to send you some of these census reports.To save typing I am doing a copy/paste of her reply with my addl notes in caps with a * beside them.
1920 Albany, Albany, NY
*ED 64, PG 2A, H/H 66
Jesse G. age 46, widow, born NY parents born NY, locomotive engineer, railroad
Elizabeth I. age 16, born NY parents born NY *DAUGHTER
*ON THIS 1920 CENSUS JESSE G. EARL IS LISTED AS HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD AND VAN SINGDEAN (SIC),JOHN H. 47 BN NY
ARE IN THE SAME HOUSEHOLD.
on same page of census
Irvin E. age 45, mail clerk RR born NY
Julia E. age 44, born NY
Frances E. age 15, born NY
Albert age 13, born NY
in same household
Albert H. age 75, widower born NY
........I'm sure this Albert H. age 75 is father of your Jesse as Jesse had a sister Julia of right age in 1880.
1910 Albany, Albany, NY
Irvin, age ??? married 10 years, railroad ??? rail road born NY
Julia, age 32, married 10 years, 2 children 2 living, born NY
Frances, age 6, born NY
Albert, age 4, born NY
in same household
Albert H. age 65, widower born NY
in same city,but not on same page
*1910 NY, ALBANY, ALBANY, 18 WARD, ED91, PG 206A, H/H 526
(index shows as Joseph, but looks like Jesse to me)
age 36, married 10 years, engineer railroad, born NY parents born NY
Grace M. age 34, married 10 years, 1 child 1 living, born NY father born England, mother born NY
Irene E. age 6, born NY parents born NY *DAUGHTER
*THIS IS THE SAME DAUGHTER LISTED AS ELIZABETH I. 16, ON THE 1920 CENSUS.
*ON THIS CENSUS JESSE & FAMILY ARE LIVING WITH THE FAMILY OF:
VAN SUNDERON, JOHN H.37M1 14 YRS NY
ARTHUR H. 10SON
WENDELL,ARTHUR S. 40BIL
THEN JESSE & FAMILY ARE LISTED AS ABOVE THEN:
WENDELL,ELIZABETH D.70WD8KIDS/6 ALIVE, MIL
*THE SURNAME VAN SUNDERON IS VERY HARD TO READ, MY SPELLING MAY BE OFF. THE RELATIONSHIP OF BIL & MIL WOULD REFER TO THE HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD, JOHN H. VAN SUNDERON.NOT SURE HOW OR IF THEY ARE RELATED TO YOUR JESSE BUT SINCE THEY ARE STILL ALL LIVING TOGETHER ON THE 1920 THOUGHT IT WAS IMPORTANT TO GIVE THE COMPLETE LISTING.

The age on this census is off for Jesse but everything else matches.Do you know anything about this son Charles M.??If the death date matches your info, it would be a good idea to order the original ss application.Might have the name of his mother (2nd wife of Jesse G. Earl)
Hope this helps,
