Madness Monday - My Irish Green Eyes
Well, just yesterday I finally discovered without a shadow of doubt the parents of my 2nd great grandmother, Ellen Sullivan, known as Nellie. Her parents were Dennis (b 1816) and Hannah (b1820) Sullivan born in Ireland according to the census records. Ellen actually named her son Dennis after her father. I wonder if at one time the name was O'Sullivan.
I still don't know where in Ireland they were from, or when they came to America. Do you know how many Dennis Sullivan's there are with a wife by the name of Hannah? How am I ever going to go further. It is driving me mad I tell you.
