SASKATCHEWAN, Humboldt District, Subdistrict 04, Page 25, Lines 17, 18, & 19, Family 7

http://automatedgenealogy.com/census06/index.jsp

Surname, Weighiill, is mistranscribed as Wieghill and some initials too.

17 7 Weighill Eustace H. [Eustace Harrison]
18 7 Weighill H. A. [Henry Alexander]
19 7 Weighill K. T. [Kenneth Turnbull]

Weighill Eustace Link to 1911 SASKATCHEWAN, Saskatoon District, Enumeration district 2, page 1, line 22, Family 7

I have been unable to find the other two in the 1911 Census. They and another brother, Philip Percy Weighill, all filed in 1910 and proved ~1913 homesteads in Twp 27 Range 29 w 3 Saskatchewan, Moose Jaw, Enumeration Dist 116.

A great site,
Bernie

Hi Bernie -

We are still without power, internet or phone (Dorian - after 4 days - I've come for the morning to the local library) but I will get to it eventually. If you have other 1906 corrections, don't hesitate to post them here as I am always happy to fix mis-transcriptions.

Thanks for your input.

Mark

Hi Bernie -

I have made the corrections and have linked Eustace to his entry in 1911. Had you notice that Kenneth appears to have been enumerated twice in 1906? The other occurrence is on the previous page (p. 24)

Thanks. Mark

Hi Mark,
Yes, I had found the other Kenett, Kenith, at some point in time. The age is right but mine was born in Whitby, Yorkshire, England, not Ont??
I think it is likely to be him and he was counted twice?? Perhaps he said Whitby and the enumerator assumed Ont?
Regards,
Bernie

Hi Bernie -

In my experience some enumerators were careless with the place of birth column. There is no guarantee that this isn't a different Kenneth Weighill but if it is I can't find him in Ontario in 1901. With both a relatively uncommon given name and surname it would be quite the coincidence to find two of them in the same sub-district.

Cheers, Mark
