Tom Sullivan Remembers his Sullivan Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles

Excerpt from "Note About Things I Remember" by Thomas A. Sullivan, March 4, 1996.

Sullivan Grand Parents

"My paternal grandfather died when I was about three, c1911, and grandmother Sullivan when I was about eight, c1916.  They came from Ireland and had a grocery store on Shalto [Sholto] St. in Chicago, where the children were born.  Then they retired to a large old home in Evanston where I knew them.  Grandfather had a white goatee and we had little in common, however, grandmother [Ellen Connor Sullivan] would serve me mashed potatoes with catsup which I loved, but of which my Mother took a dim view and wouldn't serve at home.  When she died I wanted very much to go to her funeral, but for some reason I was not allowed."

The home in Evanston that Tom remembers was located at 833 Madison St.

Sullivan Aunt and Uncles
  • Ann, the oldest child married a man who lived in West Chicago, so I only met her once.  [Ann married James Gahagan.  She was the second oldest child after Mary.]
  • Mary, a lovely lady, was the matriarch who kept the boys together.   She visited us frequently as her son, Charles, was my age and we went to school together.  He was a good baseball player and got an appointment to West Point, was wounded in Patton's Army and ended up a major general.  [Mary married Thomas Hoy; Charles Hoy would be the person who went to West Point.]
  • Jay, the oldest of my Father's brothers, had a bad leg and I only saw him at funerals. [Jay married Viola Ericson.]
  • Frank was a plumber.  He had a wife, Maggie, who was deeply involved in the church ladies auxiliary.  He was fairly close to my Father. [Frank married Margaret "Maggie" Sweeney]
  • Peter married a semi-wealthy woman whose father owned a grain storage business (Dickinson?).  He moved in more sophisticated business circles, didn't see him much.  Rumor had it that his business profiteered somehow during WWII. [Peter married Anne Stange]
  • Alex [Tom's Father] went to St. Ignatius College for two years and quit to become a steamfitter and get married.  He was a journeyman later a foreman, then a superintendent. The company gave him a car to go among jobs to supervise progress and expedite material.  Proficient with blueprints and estimating costs.  The 1931-34 depression bankrupted his company.  He ended up working for the city.  Heavy smoking affected his heart, brought on retirement and death. [Alex married Ellen "Nell" Madigan]
  • Michael died in infancy [Michael was 21 in 1902 when he died. He never married]
  • Charles was a Jesuit priest, assigned to Resurrection parish every Sunday.  He would come to our home for Sunday dinner and we became quite close.  After Margaret and I married we had him over a few times.
  • Phil, the youngest, worked on LaSalle Street in the commodity market.  When the parents died the family gave him their inheritance, about $50,000 to buy a membership in the Chicago Board of Trade.  Everyone was going to get rich. Unfortunately, he needed additional cash to hold commodity futures positions temporarily.  The cost of financing ate up any earnings and he went bankrupt. [Phil married Nonie Mahoney.]

Origin of Sullivan and Connor Names

The great and illustrious Irish family of (O) Sullivan descend from Eoghan Mor, father of the famous Olioll Olum, 3rd Century King of Munster. The Mac Carthy's, O'Keeffes and O'Callaghans were the other leading families of the Munster Eoghanacht i.e., descended from the above mentioned Eoghan, but (O)Sullivan remains the most widespread surname in Munster. The surname is an anglicized form of the Gaelic "O'Suileabhan". The Gaelic prefix "O" indicates "male descendant of", plus the personal byname Suileabhan, variously interpreted as "hawk-eyed" or "one-eyed". Several members of the clan were lords of the territory near Cahir, (Co. Tipperary), prior to the Anglo-Norman invasion. From 1200 on, they spread to Counties Cork and Kerry dividing into two main septs - O'Sullivan Mor and O'Sullivan Beare. The senior chieftain of the former sept had his stronghold at Kenmare Bay, Co. Kerry, and the latter chieftain was lord of Beare and Bantry. Owen Rua O'Suileabhan (1748-1784), was a great lyric poet, and Sir Arthur Sullivan, (1842-1900), of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas, was of Irish descent. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Donal O'Sullivan Beare, which was dated 1560-1618, hero of the Siege of Dunboy, recorded in "Records of Dunboy, Bantry Bay", during the reign of Queen Elizabeth 1st, known as "Good Queen Bess", 1558 - 1603.

This interesting surname, with variant spellings Con, Cone, Connell, Connelly, Connor, Couroy and Conne, widespread in the Auchry area of Aberdeenshire, and in the Province of Ulster, is an Anglicized form of the old Scots Gaelic "Siol Cuin" or "Con", literally meaning "the seed or race of Con", a byname from the Gaelic "con", hound. Bearers of this name proudly claim to be a branch of the great Clan Donald, through descent from a 13th Century William Con, "lauchfull sonne to Donald of the Iles and Kyntyr, chief of the Mackdonald". Members of this clan came to Ireland in the 13th Century and established themselves as gallowglasses in Ulster. However, in this Province, Conn may also derive from MacConn, itself, an Anglicized form of the rare County Down patronymic Mac Mhiolchon, "son of the hound-like one". George Con was the Pope's agent at the court of Charles 1's queen (1636 - 1639); Agnes, daughter of Robert Conn, was christened in Drumbo Presbyterian, County Down, on August 1st 1707, and on April 9th 1847 Catherine Conn was a famine emigrant to New York City. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of William Conn, witness to the laird of Balfour's bond, which was dated 1552, "Records of Aberdeenshire", Scotland, during the reign of Queen Mary, known as "Mary Queen of Scots", 1542 - 1567. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. 
Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

Holy Famly Church - Parish Pew Rental - 1896 and Parishioners

Pews and Pewholders

"After a lapse of thirty-three years it is interesting again to study briefly the pew situation, and call to mind, not only the location and schedule of rentals, which we are enabled to do through a diagram prepared under the direction of the pastor, but also again to take note of the principal parishioners represented in the pewholders. This diagram, made accessible through publication in the church Calendar and Sodality Bulletin, illustrates graphically the capacity of the church, the location of the aisles and pillars, and various vacant spaces, Rev. M. P. Dowling, S. J., had the diagram prepared and directed its publication in March, 1896.... Father Dowling estimated that there was only one pew rented to every two hundred of the members of the parish.... At the time this diagram was made, the pew rents ranged from $52.00 a year, for the best pews in the middle aisle, down to $8.00 for the least desirable.
"On the diagram, the schedule of prices marked sets forth the charge made for one sitting for three months.
"At this time the pewholders and the pews occupied by them were as follows:
On page 193, it notes that Philip Sullivan occupied pew #243 in section 7. On the chart it says "243, $2.50, Taken."  Pages 189-193.

Elsewhere in the book on the Holy Family Church are several entries that mention the Sullivan Family:

"Rev. Charles P. Sullivan, S. J., was born October 22, 1883, and entered the Society of Jesus, February 3, 1905.  At present Father Sullivan is doing very proficient work as a professor in Rockhurst College, Kansas City, Mo."  Page 407.

"Peter A. Sullivan of Sholto Street served as usher for a few years from 1904 to 1906.  His people moved out to Evanston, which obliged him to follow.  There were five brothers of this family at one time altar boys, namely: Perter, the usher; Alexander, Michael, Charles, now Rev. Charles Sullivan, S. J., and Phillip."  Pages 660-661.

"Mr. and Mrs. Philip Sullivan, 90 Sholto street, kept a store from 1871 to 1900. Mr. Sullivan's store was very popular in the neighborhood owing to the kindness and charity of the family.  Mr. and Mrs. Sullivan were very much attached to the Church and contributed, as far as their means would permit, to all and every necessity of the church and parish.  There was a large family, five of the boys were at one time serving as Acolytes, one of them Our Lord selected to follow Him as a priest in the Society of Jesus, the Rev. Charles Sullivan, S. J.  This store was purchased by Mr. and Mrs. Flanagan, who ran it for several years."  Page 736-737.

In one section of the book the author names parishioners, by street which provides a look at the Sullivan neighbors at the turn of the last century:

"On Sholto street lived William Murphy at the corner of Eleventh street, opposite the Planing Mill.  Theresa Murphy was identified with W. C. O. F.  Her brother, James E., was an exceptional artist as an expert wood engraver.  William was a letter carrier, and Elizabeth Goodbody is a teacher in the Chicago Public Schools.  The following also lived on Sholto: Daniel Short, John Ward, Thomas Kenneally, John Kelly, Frank Gibson, Owen Rooney, Patrick Martin,... Phil Sullivan, Patrick Burke, John Callahan, Thomas Kennedy." Page 948.

Ellen Connor Sullivan, Death Certificate

Ellen Connor Sullivan died on December 3, 1919, just four years after her husband, Philip. While she was ill, she was staying with her daughter, Mary Sullivan Hoy who lived at 3917 Gladys Avenue in Chicago where she died. Ellen was 71 at the time of her death. Similar to her husband, she also died of heart trouble. Her death certificate states she died of cardiac exhaustion with pulmonary edema, e.g., fluid accumulation in the lungs. A contributing factor was arteriosclerosis. She is buried with her husband in Calvary Cemetery, Evanston.

Philip Sullivan, Death Certificate

Philip J. Sullivan died at age 75 in Evanston, Illinois on May 25, 1915. For most of his life in Illinois, he was a grocery merchant. His death certificate states he worked at this occupation from 1860 to 1909. Prior to living in Evanston, he lived at 90 Sholto Street in Chicago. Sholto Street is now called Union Avenue. His death certificate states that his mother's maiden name was McCabe, but on other documents it is listed as either Leddy or Corcoran. Since the informant of the death certificate, his son Philip M., did not know the first name of either parent, I have less confidence in McCabe being the maiden name of Philip J. Sullivan's mother. He died from a cerebral hemorrhage complicated by arteriosclerosis. Philip is buried at Calvary Cemetery in Evanston.
