          Dear Mr. Tafolla,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We searched the National Archives catalog and located Patent Case Files, 1/1/1836 - 12/31/1978 in the Records of the Patent and Trademark Office (Record Group 241). Each patent case file may include the file jacket, issued patent specification and drawings, petition, applicant's initial specification, oath of invention, applicant's drawings, amendments to the specification, powers of attorney, reports by patent attorney, notice of allowances, receipt for fees, and correspondence with the inventor(s) and their attorneys. Most of these records have not been digitized. For more information about these records, please contact the National Archives at Kansas City (RM-KC) at kansascity.archives@nara.gov. Plus. we searched the online patent index of the United States and Patent and Trademark Office and located U.S. Patent Number 1048429. On page 4 of the application, Belen Quezada is listed as a resident of San Jose in Santa Clara County, California.


          In addition, we located the Population Schedules for the 1910 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) that may contain information for San Jose, California. For more information about these non-digitized records, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) at archives1reference@nara.gov. See NARA’s 1910 Census Records web page for more information.


          Also, the 1910 U.S. Federal Census is available online through FamilySearch and Ancestry. There may be a fee for using Ancestry. Instead, please check for access at your local library as many library systems subscribe to these sites, making them free for their patrons.


          Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RM-KC and RDT1. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.


          Finally, most cities and counties have yearly directories for residents. Some of these directories are indexed by address but most are alphabetically by last name. You may wish to consult the FamilySearch wiki on United States Directories for these resources. Google has digitized Polk's San Jose City and Santa Clara County Directory for 1911 that contains an address for Belen Quezada. The San Jose Public Library also maintains a collection of city directories, some of which are digitized and available online.


          We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
