Thanks for the info from the census. I hope you are able to find info. about your grandfather, Fred. They seemed to coexist with my ancestors. They were in wisconsin at the same time. I found out that my Fred's son James was actually also named Fred but they called him by his middle name to avoid confusion as there were three generations of Freds. I recently acquired a photo of James Wilford and Sarah Bigelow with theirchildren, Lottie, Linda, Sadie and Fred. So, I can go back 4 generations to the Fred who came from England. With the help of the info. you provided, I know the year they were born and can look in England if I want to go any further back. The photo was taken sometime between 1880 and 1900 I would say. There are several Wilfords listed in the phone book. You may wish to get some information from them.
