Name: John James SULLIVAN
John and Mary lived at 120 Sargeant St in Holyoke when they first married. He was a papermaker in Holyoke's large paper industry at the time at the Albion Paper Company while she was a domestic. Looking to better his circumstances, John went to work for Parsons Paper Company by 1906. By 1914, he was working for the George C. Gill Paper Company. By 1915 or 1916, he moved to New Haven where he became a foreman at Winchester Repeating Arms Company. He bought a house at 69 Lilac Street in New Haven and lots on Whitney Avenue, John was a kind, religious man with a heavy Irish brogue. His grandson Ray remembers them going on very long walks, during which they'd visit both churches and taverns! He lived with his daughter Mary for many years prior to his death. In New Haven, he attended St. Rita's Church on Whitney Avenue.

I've been trying to find my gggrandmother, Mary Sullivan's family for years.
I only know that she was born in Co. Kerry 1857/8, her father was John and
mother was either Bridget or Kate. She arrived in Holyoke about 1870 from
census records and in the 1920 census she had a niece Mary, born in Irleand
in 1885, living with her.
I have a great deal of information on Sullivans in Holyoke from 1850 onward,
including Holyoke City Directory pages, census records, including the 1855
and 1865 state census and naturaliation records.
Trying to find a Mary Sullivan in Holyoke is extremely difficult and I
thought perhaps you might have some connection or might be interested in the
research I have.
Thanks for reading.
