In Reply to: Richard and Mary Dunn of Montreal(city),Quebec,Canada by Patricia Dunn of 11455

Hi Patricia,

at ancestry.com Drouin collection I found baptism for son Edouard William Dunn, born March 7, 1877 Ste. Brigide, Montreal to Richard Dunn and Mary Ann Murray, Sponsor was Theresa Murray

Quebec, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967 about Edouard William Dunn

Event:       Baptême (Baptism)
Baptism Year:       1877
Baptism Location:       Montréal, Québec (Quebec)
Place of Worship or Institution:       Ste-Brigide

Odd, but there is another entry for him, in Anglican Saint Luke, Montreal showing him to be baptized Jan. 13, 1878 but it is crossed out and below it says this entry and the following made by mistake. Parents are shown as richard and Mary Ann

then there is a 3rd entry for Anglican Saint Luke, Montreal which shown parents Richard Dunn and marry Ann which says he was born May 1, 1877 baptized jan. 13, 1878

Mother's maiden name is not shown in any of the Saint Luke entries. Indexed under Dunn, no first name

I have not found birth/baptism for Edith but there is a marriage for her - to Arthur Robert Oct. 20, 1898 and she is shown as daughter of Richard Dunn and Mary Ann Murray.

Joseph Richard Dunn was baptized April 1, 1881, son of Richard Dunn and Mary Ann Murray. Sponsor Ferdinand Boldie and Mary Ann Riggino

There is a death for son Richard in 1921. It says he was buried August 20, 1921, died the 18th of August. at the age of 40 years. Parents Richard Dunn and Mary Ann Murray. It does not mention a wife
Odd thing is it is listed in Basilique Notre-Dame which I believe is Catholic

Event:       Mariage (Marriage)
Marriage Year:       1876-1880
Marriage Location:       Montréal, Québec (Quebec)

Richard Dunn, bachelor and Mary Ann Murray, Spinster, were married with license this 20th day of June 1876 by me Edmund Hood , Rector

Signatures are: Richard Dunn, M.A. Murray, Michael Driscoll, Margaret Rofter

so no parents names shown

Since his son was Joseph Richard Dunn this may be Richard's baptism

Quebec, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967 about Joseph Richard Dunn
Name:       Joseph Richard Dunn
Event:       Baptême (Baptism)
Baptism Year:       1858

Oct. 14, 1858 baptized Joseph Richard Dunn, born the 11th, son of John Dunn, journalizer and Ellen Louver of this Parish. Sponsors Patrick Farmer and Julia Ryan.

Ellen Louver may be Sower - hard to tell.

1891 STE MARIE WARD, MONTREAL CENTRE, QUEBEC
DUNN
Richard, age 37, carter, born Quebec both parents born Ireland

May Ana, age 32, wife, born US both parents born Ireland

Edward, age 14, son

Ida, age 12, daughter

R., age 10, son

Theresa, age 3, daughter

all children born Quebec father born Quebec mother born US

I see that in the 1930 census mother Mary A. is with Edward and Ernestine but their son Raymond is not there

Quebec, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967 about Ernestine O'Orsennens
Name:       Ernestine O'Orsennens
Spouse:       Edward Dunn
Event:       Mariage (Marriage)
Marriage Year:       1898
Marriage Location:       Montréal, Québec (Quebec)
Place of Worship or Institution:       

The image is cut off bit at the bottom but will give you what I can read

November 5, 1898 after dispensing of banns, marriage of Eduard Dunn, cigaret of Notre Dame du Bois, major son of Richard Dunn and Mary Ann (cannot read rest as it is at bottom - then goes to top of next page) D'OdetD'Orsennens of this parish, major daughter of Charles Ernest D'Odet fit D'Orsonnens and Leontine Bouchard of this Parish. Present Richard Dunn, father of the spouse, Charles Ernest D'Odet fit D"Orsennens, father of the spouse .

****************

I could not find Edward and Ernestine in any census before 1930. I see in the 1920 passenger list for Ernestine she had daughter May with her, age 15. No other children - it seems odd that they would have one child about 1903/1905 and not another until 1924.
