Mary and Michael Sullivan
What I know about my grandparents:
Grandfather: Michael Sullivan, born 10/25/1870. Could have come from Middle Mountain or Ardfield, Clonakilty, County Cork
He emigrated to the USA through Boston in 1891 according to the US Census of 1900 and lived in Chicago, Illinois after a brief stay in Whiting, Indiana.
He had at least one brother, Timothy, who emigrated to the USA in 1893 (birth: December, 1869).
Grandmother: Mary Sullivan (also her maiden name), born 3.25.1871? in Ardfield, Clonakilty, County Cork.
She emigrated to the USA in 1890.
She had at least three sisters: Kate, Nell,(both emigrated to the USA) and another sister who remained in Ireland.
They met and married in Chicago, Illinois in 1895.
My grandfather had a niece, Bridget McCarthy, who lived with them in Chicago at the time of the 1910 census.
I believe that a pub owner in Ardfield named Dermot Mahoney may be related to my grandmother.
I am planning a visit to Ireland in April/May and will be in Clonakilty in early May 2016 and would appreciate any information about the family, especially finding my great-grandparents' names and where they are buried. Thank you.
