Thank you Alviegal. It certainly seems as though it is my family. Edwin W Bridger did live with his grandparents in 1901

With an addy like S36SE T24 R23 W2M, it is probly a farm.
It's located 1m N & 6 m W of Strasbourg SK via look ups at:
http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/post-offices/index-e.html
Saskatoon Sec.28, Twp.36, R.5, W3 - 1884-10-01
Regina Sec.19, Twp.17, R.19, W2 - 1882-11-01
Findlater Sec.16, Twp.21, R.25, W2 - 1908-05-01
Strasbourg Sec.25, Twp.24, R.22, W2

Looking at https://maps.google.com/ Strasbourg's in Sec 25SW
I think there're a couple of buildings on his quarter section, but it gets blurry when I try to magnify enough to tell.
