Gleasons in Montreal, Quebec c.1900

I am helping my aunt to do her family tree. Here is the info she has:

Her grandfather was Owen Christopher GLEASON born in Montreal. He married Sarah McNally, also born in Montreal. They might have married around 1904-6. They had 8 children but lost most of them to scarlet fever and/or influenza c.1916-26. 3 children were left. We believe the eldest, Owen Christopher (born 1906) was also the first born. He looked after his two surviving siblings, Loretta (born c.1909) and Tim or Tom. Owen did not marry until he had brought up his siblings. Loretta lived long and became a nun in Montreal. It is unknown what happened to Tim or Tom but it is believed that he became the black sheep through some deed or marriage!

Owen married Violet Geraldine Gardner (born 1907). They had two children, Doreen Ann and William Owen.

Any assistance would be much appreciated, especially 1901 census searches in Montreal.
