I am beginning to research my ancestors on both sides of my family. My father was James Alexander Sullivan born July 20, 1914 to Susan (nee Campbell) and Thomas Sullivan. I believe he was born in Chicago but spent much of his childhood in Flint, Michigan. He was an only child.
My mother was Mary Catherine Doherty born August 15, 1932 to Catherine (nee Darcy) and John Doherty in Chicago. She had a sister named Helen and two brothers who died in infancy. Her parents came to America in the early 1900's from Ireland. We believe that Catherine Darcy arrived in March, 1912 from County Limerick. We have very little information for John Doherty. He had two sisters whose names were Mary and Anne. He also had a brother named Timothy. We thought we had paperwork that showed him to live in Abbeyfeale, County Limerick but we have discovered that this might not be true.
Any assistance on this quest will be greatly appreciated. I will gladly share what limited information I have at this point.
