Sullivans of Bangor (Patrick Sullivan, b. 1816)

Sullivans of Bangor (Patrick Sullivan, b. 1816)

Posted: 9 Jan 2006 5:46AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Sullivan
I'm seeking information on the descendents and family of PATRICK SULLIVAN, born in Ireland in Feb 1816, migrated to the US in 1837, settled in Bangor by 1850, perhaps 1840, and died in Bangor after 1900, at 84-plus years of age. I am pasting all relevant census data from 1840 to 1900 below.

I'm also wondering about the part of town described in this census data, and where else I might find additional information. Where is "Kenduseag Stream"? The "West Side"? "Emerson Street"? "Buck" / "Bach" Street? Do these places even exist anymore? If so, or if not, what are or what were they like?

If you know anything about this Sullivan family of Bangor, or the neighborhood they lived in, please be in touch. I read some of the other postings on Sullivans of Bangor, I'm not sure if it's the same family but you can probably tell from all the data below. Many thanks - gracias y paz a todos -- MJS

I'm looking for information on CORNELIUS SULLIVAN, born c. 1815 in Ireland, probably Cork, who emigrated to the US in the 1830s and lived in Bangor, and his wife JOANNA (JULIA) MURPHY. Their daughter Margaret was my great-great grandmother. According to Margaret's death certificate, she was born in 1841 in Maine. In the 1850 census there is a 10-year-old Margaret Sullivan living in Bangor with the Graves family and a group of young adults from New Brunswick. In 1860 she is in Boston with the Anderson family, and in 1864 she married Richard Quirk and moved to Salem, Ma.

I wonder whether Cornelius and Patrick might be related.
