Ada Louise Hinton, 1882-1975, was born in England and came to Pincher Creek, Alberta with her parents in 1887. In 1902 she married Arthur Charles Kemmis, Pincher Creek's first lawyer. Arthur, ?-1940, came to Canada from Ireland ca. 1896, and worked in the R.B. Bennett law firm in Calgary. He fought in First World War, rising to the rank of colonel. Ada and Charles had two daughters, Helen Aileen (Rhodes), 1903-?, and Sybil (Reeves). Ada built Kilmorey Lodge in Waterton in 1926 and ran it as a summer lodge.
