The following notes were found in the bible of my husband's great-grandmother: "David MCCARRON found a widow, Ellen (O'SHEA) SULLIVAN, to keep care for the house and his children. Ellen SULLIVAN had two small children of her own: Patrick J. and Rose. A short time before that, she (Ellen) had killed a wolf who was attacking her husband, Michael SULLIVAN. He had been in the stable putting the horses away for the night. He later died from the results of that attack. Some years later, David and Ellen had three children of their own: James, William and Isabella."
