Thank you for your quick reply Stella!

Charles and his family emigrated through Hamburg, Germany (23 Jul 1886) > Grimsby, England > Liverpool > Toronto[1]. (Ann) Louise BOLZE was his wife. Four related families emigrated from the same location in Germany (BOLZE, KRAUSE, LEHRMANN who subsequently spelled the name LEHRMAN, and LOSSE). These families eventually moved West.

“The Lehrman's came about 1894 and settled on section 7. They are relatives of the Bolze family.”[2] I don't know whether or not this is consistent with the homestead record you cited.

The Calgary Daily Herald records the sale of the Victoria hotel by Charles Lehrman and that he planned to spend the winter in Red Deer and to subsequently move to BC[3]. The hotel was built in 1894 and burnt to the ground in 1911. The family moved to Red Deer as planned in November, 1909[4].

Charles Ernest LEHRMAN died 19 Dec 1938 in Vancouver -- I am certain this is my Charles LEHRMAN[5].

Ann Louise LEHRMAN was born 25 Nov 1855 in Germany and died 24 Mar 1931 in Vancouver[6].

As stated in my post I would like to exchange info and pictures of this family (and the related families mentioned above).
