Yes, I have seen the same thing. A mother, in her 60's, listed at home with
her husband and family, and also in the neighbouring village as a visitor
with her married daughter and the daughter's family. Guess she could have
been at both places, depending on when each census form was completed. Or
maybe she was actually visiting her daughter, but her husband listed her at
home out of habit.
