Alice Hodgins nee Dermody was indeed the daughter of Mary Ann Griffin and Mathew Dermody per her death registration, which says birth 04 JAN 1856, death 22 Aug 1928. I have attached a copy of it.
1901 & 1911 census give her birth date as 04 Jan 1857.

Do you have a marriage date for Alice Dermody & Michael Hodgins? I estimate about 1879, as Michael's first wife Alice Breckon died 19 Aug 1878 and the 1881 census shows Michael married to Alice Dermody. Also, Michael's obituary (he died 23 Oct 1922) reads, in part, "Fourty-three years ago he married Alice Dermody, who also survives him."
In her later years, my grandmother wrote her recollections of the Hodgins family, and had this to say about Alice Dermody Hodgins:
After Michael Hodgins' death, Alice Dermody lived alone in his house in the town of [Newmarket], Ontario, Canada. In the year 1928 or 1929, the neighbors noticed there was no movement around the place and went over. She lay on the floor dead. She had been preparing a meal and was taken suddenly. The oil stove had gone dry and the meal she was preparing was burned black.
That's all I have on Alice,

I think this might be Alice Dermody, the daughter of Mathew Dermody and Ann Griffin. My information shows that Alice was born 04 June 1856. Her father (Mathew) is my g-g-grandfather. I did not have any information re: Alice. Alice's nephew, James Edward Dermody, married Margaret Hodgins in Newmarket, Ontario - they were married 10 June 1910. If you have any further information re: Alice, I will appreciate it - thank you.
