Hi Are you sure? The names are the same in the 1911 Census - as the ones in the 1916 Census you posted.

I would not give up on that - right now.
It would be a strange coincidence to have two families with the same name/ages etc

Split View - of the 1911 Census page - shows that the family were from the USA.
The name "Ulysses Grant"- makes one think that they were from USA - perhaps by 1916 they chose to use Grant as a Given name [ or Enumerator did not know how to spell Ulysses ]

You State:
yes she was 11 years old and you can see her family in the 1911 census. Her parents were Emmett and Agnes. Agnes died in 1911 and Emmett stayed for a couple of years then left the kids and returned to the states. My dad was George. All the kids were separated so we have no record of Mabel after this one.
I don't believe the Grant Hartwick family is the "Ulysses" one.

Contact Glenbow Museum & Archive - they should be able to advise
Do a Google Search for Lacombe Home Midnapore Alberta

Provincial Archive in Edmonton Alberta - may hold some records -

Cheers, Stella
