Census

Date 1911
Place Rural Municipality of Portage La Prairie, Manitoba, Canada

Narrative

1911 Census of Canada  shows that in addition to Thomas 67 and Bridget 68, the household included two granddaughters, one grandson and one servant:

- Mary Brown (b Dec 1893)
- Jane Brown (b. Mar 1986)
- Henry McCulloch (b. Sep 1901)
- Thomas Barrett (b. May 1887) - servant

Yet the 1906 Census shows them as Boarders:
- Mary Brown (12)
- Jennie Brown (10)
with Hired Men:
- Kale Thomas (30)
- John Harrison (32)

[A clue may be in the 1901 Census which has: Jennie Brown 37 as widowed head of household, with daughters Frederica 12, Mary K. 7 and Jennie 5. Perhaps Jennie Brown is Alberta (Brown) Leader's sister-in-law.

And Henry may be Mary (Leader) McCulloch's son.
