born in the Territory of Washington on the
10th of September 1874 and was the daughter
of Isaac and Nellie (Jackson). In 1895, she
married William James Redmond who appears to
be the son of John and Ellen Redmond of
family of John and Ellen Redmond were listed
in the 1880 census living in
Portland, Oregon, both listed their parents
as having been born in Ireland. William is
listed as age twelve, born in Canada as were
his parents and siblings: John, Wallupia,
Francis and Daniel. The younger siblings:
Charles, Russa (possibly Jerusha), and Etta
were all born in Oregon.
is not listed with her husband on the 1900 census and has yet to
be located, William was residing in Portland,
Oregon in the same household at his partner
and Aimee's brother-in-law, Charles Hill. In 1910 William and Aimee were
residing in Oak Point, Cowlitz Co.,
Washington where he was employed with the Oak
Point Piling & Lumber Co.* and as
indicated on the census was that company's
secretary. In 1920 the Redmonds are
living in "Skookumchuck Precinct"
of Lewis Co., Washington. William is listed
as a 51 year-old lumberman, and was at the
time the second manager of the Hill Company
Sawmill. William died in Centralia,
Washington on 14 Jul 1949, and his widow
Aimee on 20 Nov 1951 (both cremated).
Detering (who has researched and kindly
contributed info for both Redmond & Hill)
speculates that at the time William J.
Redmond was secretary of the Oak Point Piling
& Lumber Co., that Captain Hill was its
president). Their home, as enumerated in the
1920 census, was on the north side of the
Skookumchuck river on the main road into
town, apparently outside the Centralia city
limits, hence identified by the enumerator as
the Skookumchuck Precinct.
