He moved from Ontario to Saskatchewan, accompanied by A. Ernst, and arrived at his homestead on April 1, 1906. He had filed on the quarter section SE 12-33-25-W2nd (13 miles north of Watrous) the fall before. The settlement in 1906 was known as Cressman through a store and post office operated by Mr. I. Cressman on his homestead five miles south of the present village of Guernsey.[5]

In the fall of 1947, he built a house in Watrous and moved there.[5]

    The date has been handwritten in, because the original was on a torn part of the page.

    Levi's baptism date is stamped in the front of the bible. Presumably, this bible was given to him on the occasion of his baptism.

    Levi Habermehl, SE 12 33 24, born Dec 1886 (age 25) in Ont, ethnic origin Swede [ditto from lines above], Mennonite, farmer
    wife: Herner Habermehl, born March 1888 (age 21) in Ont, Mennonite

    The transcription at Automated Genealogy includes the following note added by manderson: 'Levi Habermehl had a land grant on SE 12 33 25 W2 (#1798454). Source: Homestead Records on CD.'

    It appears that the enumerator made an error in his farm's location (range 24 instead of 25).
    Herner was the maiden name of Levi's wife (Martha Herner).
    The ethnic origin is not correct - the enumerator indicated that it was the same as above (ditto marks), possibly because no answer was given to the question.
