I'm looking for information regarding the family of my ggrandfather James Patrick Sullivan.
According to the 1880 US Census, he was born about 1876 and in 1880 was living with his grandparents James & Elizabeth Welsh of Philadelphia.He had a brother Eugene who was 2 years older than he.Apparently they were orphans.The census also indicates both he and his brother was born in the Pennsylvania but both parents were born in Ireland.The Welsh side of the family came to the US before 1855.
James P. Sullivan was a captain in the Philadelphia Fire Department in 1918 and according to his daughter became an acting Battalion Chief.
About 1893 he married Anna Frances Nelson, daughter of William S. Nelson and Elizabeth Urlary.They had about 12 children.
I would like to research any/all of the Sullivan, Nelson and Ulary families.Would like to exchange/share any information with anyone interested.
