    Hello Kevin,

    I wanted to mention that Thomas H. Redmond, owner of the Redmond’s Grand Opera House is my great uncle. he auctioned off the opera house in an interesting lottery, and apparently won it back himself. his first wife and twin babies died early (she was 35). his daughter died at 28, after having a baby girl. His son lived in Jackson for his whole life, and died around 1950 or so. his second wife died in Detroit at the same time his daughter died in buffalo. That was 1900. We have no clue what happened to Thomas after this, as he is not in any of the family cemeteries. He was also a liquor and wine merchant.

    Thank you for you nice site. It is exciting. Love, jane
