Dennis  Sullivan 

(1817 - ~ 1853 to 1854)

Burial place unknown.  Possibly North Street Cemetery or the State Street / Cold Springs cemetery. State Street was the Catholic cemetery and opened in 1854…closed around 1880 when St. Josephs cemetery was opened.    There are no records for either cemetery…lost in fires.  There are inventory lists created for both cemeteries but these are based on headstones….and State Street was is such disarray…having been unmaintained and overgrown for a hundred years.

I have been searching for death and burial records for Dennis, Bridget, Ellen and John.   None exist in the Holy Family church records. And neither evidently had a headstone……maybe it was not a universal custom then. Interesting is that in St Joseph’s in the Sullivan plot, no one t here has a headstone either.   Then finally Charles Sullivan had a military headstone.
