Would like some assistance with a Sullivan family who lived in Brown County OH from the 1840s to at least the 1880s. The father's name was Christian Sullivan, and his wife's name was listed as Margaret. They had several children. I am hoping to find out the name of Christian's parents and/or siblings. My research is actually centered in the Lowell Massachusetts area, but I have information that my GGgrandmother travelled in a covered wagon to Brown County OH in the 1840s when she was young, and then returned to Lowell. That GGgrandmother is Ellen Sullivan, and her father's name was Jeremiah Sullivan. When I looked in the 1840 census for Brown County, there was only one Sullian family listed, and it was this Christian Sullivan. The names Jeremiah and Christian seem like they could be from the same family and the birth dates for both are in the same range, so I am hoping to see if maybe our Jeremiah was a brother to Christian, thereby explaining the reason for the trip.
Thank you so much. I appreciate any help. Feel free to email directly -- firstname.lastname@example.org
