WILLIAM J. REDMOND.

WILLIAM J. REDMOND, who died at Ballston Spa, March 9, 1893, was one of the self-made men of Saratoga county. He was born at Chatham, N. Y., and came to Ballston in 1874, with no capital save a fund of inexhaustible energy, perseverance, and indomitable will power. He soon placed himself among the foremost business men of the place, and his death in the prime of a useful life was a blow to the entire business community. Mr. Redmond was engaged in many enterprises, all of which contributed in a measure to the prosperity of the village. With Thomas Kelsey he erected the Opera House block, which adds much to the architecture of the village.

He married, in 1881, Mary J. McKittrick, daughter of Capt. William Henry and Caroline (Holmes) McKittrick. Of their union are four children: Caroline, John McKittrick, Bernard Holmes and Mary Shafter.
