On March 6, 1889 Susan was living in Newport, Jack County. Texas with her family. The story being told in the family is she climbed out of her bed room window, got up in back of James on his horse and rode off to get married. Beverly and Lauin looked for the marriage license in Navarro county and even in Athens, but could not find the license. They thought Susan was living in the Malakoff section near Corsacana or Athens. Folowing the trail looking for Susan's brother and sister marriages they found James and Susan's license in the city of Jacksboro, Jack County court house. We did not know where James was living at that time. It was shortly after he sold the property nears Marysville, Cooke County, Texas. They were married on March 7, 1889 and was living in the Indian Territory near what is now called Ardmore, Oklahoma when their first born, William Oscar came into this world on December 17, 1889. In the 1900 censusa statement shows that Susan had lost a child. No one living, including Nora (Susans only daughter) has any knowledge about the death of a child before William Oscar died in 1937.

William Sullivan (my Gr Gr Grandfather) is the father of George Riley Sullivan (my great grandfather. George Riley Sullivan is the father of my Grandmother (Susan Alzina Sullivan). Susan is the mother of Oscar William Sanders who is my father. Hi cousin.

I had not found him in Milam County in 1850. I had been searching east. He moved to Henderson County, near Malakoff (Texas). He lived next door to Thomas J Hobgood, my gr gr grandfather in 1860. I did not know that he died in the Civil War.

George Riley Sullivan is said to have died in west Texas in 1917. I have looked every where for his grave and death record.
My name is Lauin Sanders 22714 Benner Ave. Torrance, Ca 90505-2820. Phone 310-326-2325.

Hi my name is Rosemary Gatewood Mills - my line is
1) Wm. Henry Sullivan & Seletha / 2) Wm. Henry Sullivan & Martha Curry Tarver / 3) John Wesley Sullivan & Anna Stover / 4) Eileen Faye Sullivan Gatewood. You have Martha listed as Martha Truitt Curry but my grandfather's bible lists her as Martha Curry Tarver (dau. of Nelson Tarver)born 30 Mar 1840 he also listed her marriage date to his dad Wm. H. Sullivan as 11 Jul 1858 and then marriage to James M. Watson 23 Dec 1862 and listed his half siblings names and births as well as his and his brother Wm. Henry Nelson. She can be found on Census with Nelson Tarver. (Martha named her son Wm. Henry Nelson Sullivan after his dad and the Nelson for her dad. I know on death record of Wm. Henry Nelson Sullivan it shows a Miss Mary Truitt but she was not his spouse and not his mother. I found out she is the sister to Martha Curry Tarver. Her name was Mary A. Tarver and she married Francis Marion Truitt (see on Judge Nelson Tarver's history) I am searching still for Sullivan info - thank you for any help.

HI, my name is Rosemary Gatewood Mills and William Henry Sullivan & Seletha were my gg grandparents. Their son William Henry Sullivan married Martha Curry Tarver dau. of Nelson Tarver and she named her baby born after her husband's death for him and her dad. William Henry Nelson Sullivan born 9 Apr 1861 (his dad died 15 Oct 1860). Her first son was John Wesley Sullivan (my grandfather) who married Anna Stover. These are the only Sullivan children born to Wm. Henry Sullivan and Martha Tarver. Martha then married James M. Watson who had children from a previous marriage and he and Martha had several Watson children. We have had cousin reunions where the Watson kids came also. All this info came from John Wesley Sullivan's bible. Martha, James and Uncle Henry (Wm Henry Nelson)and wife Ammon came to visit my family many times where we lived in Palo Pinto County, Texas.
