In the 1859, Paterson Business directory there is a David Zeliff living at 13 Benson. (a mason) There are also, three other Zeliffs', all masons, living at 27 Totowa Ave; Daniel P, Peter and William. (possibly father and sons). My Wait line also, lived at 27 Totowa and were masons. In fact my gggfathers first wife was Hannah? Zeliff. In the 1830 and 1840 census, Peter Zeliff appears near the name of Joshua Wait, my ggggfather, in Manchester Twp, across the river from Paterson.
Hope it helps
