Ellen Jane SULLIVAN was born in 1840 in Ireland. Ellen married 4 Jun 1857 in Racine County, WI to Daniel Hart (1824-1865, see my posting for Daniel). Ellen and Daniel were parents of Mary (1858-bef 1925); and John Henry (1860-1911). When Daniel died as a soldier in the Civil War, Ellen applied for pension and listed her residence as Milwaukee, Milwaukee County, WI. Between 2 Jan 1866 (application for pension) and 9 Oct 1866 application for increase of pension, Ellen moved with her children to Dawson, Sangamon County, IL. She was joined in Sangamon County, IL by Henry Hart, of Caledonia County, VT, who signed as a witness on her application for increase of pension. (Henry Hart is believed to be a brother or cousin to Daniel Hart.)
The widow, Ellen Jane Sullivan Hart, was married 4 Jul 1868 in Springfield, Sangamon County, IL to Henry Hart (1831-1881). They were the parents of at least one daughter named Beauty. Ellen died 27 September 1871 and is buried in Mechanicsburg Cemetery, Mechanicsburg, Sangamon County, IL.
