|14 Union Street - Home of the Wilsons in 1901 & 1902|
Union Street heads slightly uphill from South Front Street which is only a couple of blocks from the Hudson River and a block from the railroad tracks that run parallel to the Hudson.
I was pleased with the look of the street. There were quite a few buildings that must have been here when my relatives lived in the neighborhood. Most were occupied and well cared for. It was clear, based on my walks around town (especially along Warren Street), that there were buildings of a variety architectural styles and vintages on this street. While Warren Street is clearly the jewel of Hudson, this portion of Union Street could, with a little work, be just as impressive and pleasing.
In the 1900 U.S. Census two families rented space at 14 Union Street: Loren and Emma Edwards and Thomas and Cashanne Pendergast with their three children. I assume the Wilsons had one floor of the house, but I have not been able to find if any other families were at that address in the Hudson city directories for 1901 and 1902. In the 1905 New York State Census, Isaac Winstian and his wife lived there with their seven children.
