Dear Al, 
 
I was able to confirm that my ggf's name was Michael Redmond. It was quite a thrill to view the GEDCOM file for my father's 
family. As he is an only child, I do not have any aunts or uncles to ask for stories and information. I see that you and 
Mitchell have met on-line. Mitchell and I also met online while trying to find Michael Redmond. We have discovered that we 
are direct cousins. Should you require further information to add to the Redmond list, feel free to contact me. I would 
however like to point out that one name is missing from William Redmond and Mary Forrester's children. Her name was Elizabeth 
(Lizzie). Also in the second generation, I have the name of Marguerite Redmond's spouse and their children. 
 
I also have the name of most spouses/children of the third generation. 
 
It is my father's fondish wish to write about the Redmond Family, he is however missing the information for which Mitchell 
and I are seeking. He was a well-known columnist in the Ottawa area. He has since moved and research is best done if a 
person has access to the area. 
 
If ever you should come across further information on Mary Forrester, we would very much appreciate the information.  
Thank you. 
Kathy Redmond.

I am not sure what help I could be for those researching the Bowesville area other than quoting from the book. However you can add my email if you wish. Funny that you mention the Collins family. The Collins family home was near where I grew up. I remember Edgar and Leonard Collins. Leonard liked to hang around my dad's gas station. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Al Lewis" To: "V Wammes" Sent: Tuesday, March 27, 2001 6:19 AM Subject: Re: redmond family - mary forrester Good Morning!

One Small Mystery Solved
Hello everybody, Below you will find an email that was sent to me by David Nolan. He clears up the name of Michael's wife. Her name was Anne Burke.(we can now officially change her name on the site) He also was able to shed some light on where Michael and Anne were buried. Mitchell and I were looking for this information and I'd like to extend my thanks to David for his help and information. So it seems Mitchell, David and I are all related!! If I get more info, I'll let you know. Take care, Kathy Redmond "Hi Kathy In reply to your inquiry, Michael Redmond, Ontario Cda. in the Redmond Family Geneology Forum. I am Michael Redmonds great-grandson and still live on Bowesville Road, Manotick Station, Gloucester beside the Redmond farm purchased by Michaels son Robert (my grandfather) in April 1906. Michael Redmond came from County Wexford in 1855, the year of arrival was stated in the 1901 census. He is supposed to have met his wife Anne Burke (her name was not Wilson) on the boat coming from Ireland. Michael apparently was working on the boat and jumped ship upon arrival in Canada. This was told to me by Loretta Redmond of Eganville. They lived on Lot 22, Conc. 4 North Gower Twp. and first appear in the !861 census of North Gower Twp. Three of their children were baptized in North Gower on the same day, Aug.7, 1870, they were Thomas Edward, John James and Margaret Jane. In 1883 they moved to Gloucester Twp. Michael and Anne died in Eganville and are buried there. I have done quite a bit of research on this family and have names, dates of marriages, births, deaths etc. Catherine Boulger was my grandmother, married to Robert Redmond, so I have info on the Boulger / Bolger family, as they were also from this area. I can give you all this info should you wish. Sincerely David Nolan"
November 18, 2001 From Mitchell LaFrance: I see that David Nolan explained the mix-up for Michael Redmond and Anne Burke (not Wilson!). A couple of other updates are: * Michael's birth/death are actually Nov 17, 1826-Mar 23, 1907. He is buried at St James in Eganville. * Ann's birth/death are actually Mar 17, 1841-Mar 21, 1912. She is also buried at St James in Eganville. Her father's name was John. ... Mitchell LaFrance
November 25, 2001 I am wondering if any of you have John Redmond who married Ann Boivin Nov. 23, 1897. Ann was the daughter of my gr.gr. aunt Delany Arnold /Patrick Boivin. Delany died in Ottawa in 1925 and John Redmond's name appears on her burial certificate as a witness. I would like to have her birth/death dates and the names of any children. Thank you Lois Martin, Abbotsford, B.C.

March 16, 2004: Greetings to the Redmond Family: I happened upon your site by accident, but it proved to be quite a boon. We are the grandchildren of Daniel J. Redmond. Daniel’s birth date is 8 March 1889. He died in Santa Clara County, California, USA, 10 October 1947, of an apparent heart attack. We found a letter in our mother’s (Eva Elizabeth Redmond Breen) correspondence from “Aunt Bessie” Redmond. The letter dated 29 April 1946, was a request from Bessie to help locate Daniel. She was making an attempt to reconnect with him and report the passing of their father (whom I assume to be John James Redmond) on 26 December 1945. Daniel married L. Belle Brown of Sparta, Wisconsin. They had three daughters: Eva, Dee, and Winifred (Peggy). All are now deceased. L. Belle Brown Redmond died in childbirth in approximately 1936. Daniel worked as a miner, a logger, a special agent for the railroad, and finally during the war as a security guard at the shipyards at Terminal Island, California. Our thanks for the wonderful and thorough information posted on your web site. For the first time we have a sense of our mother’s family--and we are thrilled. We wish you well. Megan Breen (Leigh) and Sean Michael Breen
March 20, 2004: Megan and Sean, I am very pleased to make your aquaintance. Thank you very much for the information on your grandfather and his descendants. Based on your being Daniel's grandchildren, this would make you my "third cousins". I am the great- grandchild of Robert Redmond and Catherine Boulger. Robert was the brother of John James Redmond, your great-grandfather. It is very interesting that Robert Redmond and many of his siblings as well as nephews also worked for the railroad... it seems to run in the Redmond family. I think you saw from the website that the first Redmond that came to Canada from Ireland was Michael Redmond. He was born in Wexford Ireland on Nov 17, 1826 and apparently came to Canada approximately 1855. He and his wife Anne Burke, as well as all of his children, including John James, all died and were buried in Ontario, Canada. I don't have much information on Michael, other than the fact he first appears in Ontario census records in 1861 and is listed as being a member of the "church of England". In 1871, he is then listed as Catholic, therefore he must have converted during this period. Three of his children are listed as being baptized in a local Episcopal Church, but my great-grandfather (Robert) was Catholic and buried in a Catholic cemetery. There is also an entry in the records of St James Church, Eganville, dated june 15, 1906, in which Michael is identified as having received the profession of faith in the Catholic church. He was also buried in a Catholic cemetery in 1907. Not sure if this interests you... but possibly a special treat... I am attaching a picture of Michael Redmond and Anne Burke, who are your great-great-grandparents!! Best regards, Mitchell Lafrance

March 15, 2011: Attached is an obituary notice from the January 16, 1968 Ottawa Citizen of the death the previous day, Jan 15th, of my great-uncle, Thomas August Redmond, who was married to Anne Spooner. I remember their visits to the Thurso farm when "Aunt Annie" would come and visit her sister (my grandmother Mary Ann Spooner) and my grandfather Lambert Cavan as we all lived in the same house. I also remember going to "Uncle Tom & Aunt Annie's" house at 98 Renfrew Ave. here in Ottawa. And....something I did not know...Thomas Redmond and his family appeared to grow up about 3 miles from where I live. ... Bob Cavan
Thomas August Redmond Obituary 1968
__________________________________ Bob, thank you so much for sending that obit. I remember Uncle Tom very well, as they visited my family quite often, and I found this photo that I had scanned, although I don't have a date. Aunt Annie was the first one who gave me information on the Spooner Family, although she was well up in years by then. Thanks again for the obit. Diane Spooner Apel

__________________________________ very nice. I always thought he looked just like President Harry Truman...and he always wore a tie even when he was visiting the farm. Bob C. __________________________________ ahh...I was wondering who did that history tree. Actually, the website you mentioned is where I picked up on where the Redmond family resided. There are tidbits of Redmond family stories from the Bowesville/Manotick Station area in archival newspapers. Here is a social story about Thomas Redmond's brother, Forrest, winning a prize at a Bridge party in Bowesville in 1935. http://news.google.ca/newspapers?id=7kQuAAAAIBAJ&sjid=VNoFAAAAIBAJ&pg=4692,6272237&dq=bowesville+redmond&hl=en and an obituary from 1953 on the death of Thomas' brother Newman( age 48), in Manotick Station http://news.google.ca/newspapers?id=_zwvAAAAIBAJ&sjid=790FAAAAIBAJ&pg=7395,3050497&dq=manotick+redmond&hl=en I was helping out my cousin and family tree expert, Nancy Renault, in finding the date of Thomas Redmond's death as she lives near Buckingham where he is buried. Apparently the tombstone has no date. You can post that newspaper notice for sure. I'm sure Nancy will not mind if you use her e-mail for any family tree connection. But I am getting bouncebacks from her address. Let me confirm she still has the same e-mail. Bob Cavan
January 31, 2014: Hi, I found your emails addresses on bytown.net and hope you don't mind me contacting you. My name is Patti-Anne Redmond (Michael Redmond / Anne Burke to Thomas E Redmond / Mary Boulger / Bolger to Thomas P Redmond / Margaret Mary Alice Daley to Sheila Redmond / Tom Gorman). By the way, David Nolan's wife Noreen used to work with my cousin Kathleen Power (its a small world). I've been trying to find more information on Michael Redmond and Anne Burke, the name of their parents or siblings. I see on Bytown.net Anne Burke's father's name is John. I found the record of their marriage which doesn't list their parent's name. The certificates of death also do not list their parent's name. Does anyone have any other information on Michael Redmond and Anne Burke? perhaps the ship name they came here in? I also have a question as to why some of the Redmonds moved to Eganville and some remained at Manotick Station, if anyone has any answers I'd be grateful. Thank you to Mitchell LaFrance for the photograph of the two of them, I can see a resemblance between Michael and my Uncle Terry. I have all the information I've gathered (none of which is new) listed on Ancestry.ca Regards, Patti-Anne _______________________________ Hi Patti-Anne, I do not have any information on the parents or siblings of Michael Redmond/Ann Burke or the name of the ship they came to Canada on. When I visited Lorreta Redmond in 1987 at her home in Douglas she related to me that Michael Redmond met Ann Burke on the ship, on which he was a worker. When the boat arrived in Canada Michael jumped ship and they ended up getting married but I do not know where. John, Micheal Jr. and Thomas were all railroad men and they left Manotick Station in the 1890's to work on the building of the Ottawa, Arnprior & Parry Sound Railway, construction began at Ottawa in 1893. They continued to work on the railway after completion and settled in the Eganville / Douglas area in Renfrew County. John left home in 1882 at age 15 and worked on the railroad in western Canada in 1885 during the Riel Rebellion. Robert Redmond (my grandfather) stayed at Manotick Station and was Section Foremen for the CPR at Manotick Station. He also farmed. Another brother William Redmond bought a farm in Bowesville (where the airport is today) and farmed there for the rest of his life. A sister Maggie also went to Eganville and married Tom O'Rielly of Osceola. David Nolan ________________________________ Hi, Here is the information I found. Source: Birth, Marriages, Death North Gower Township Marriages North Gower Township Methodist Church 1859-1899 Marriage of Anna Burke 25yrs to Michel Redman 30yrs 12 Dec 1859 Witnesses: Thomas Burkley and Ellen Burkley There are no parents listed for Anna and Michael, apparently the Methodist Church did not record that information Regards, Patti-Anne
