All Persons named REDMOND in Quebec in the 1901 Canada Census.

In the complete list of all the persons named Redmond in Quebec in 1901, there were only two persons named Tom or Thomas. Thomas Redmond, born Apr 15,1878, lived in Saint-Georges, Beauce, QC. Tom Patrick Redmond, born Dec 21, 1884, lived in Saint-Gabriel ward in the Hochelaga district of Montreal, QC. This Tom Patrick Redmond may indeed be the husband of Sarah McMurray. His father is apparently already dead or missing in 1901. Information about this Tom Patrick Redmond is shown below:

This corresponds to the following information sent to David Cole by Allan Redmond in 2015:

Barb and I are going to Ireland in May [2015]. My grandmother was Sarah McMurray. She had a brother Walter. She also had 3 brothers and 3 sisters. She was from Belfast. We think she died in either Montreal or Noranda between 1960 and 1965.
