Andrew Sullivan/ Timothy Sullivan
« on: Tuesday 05 September 17 23:12 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I am trying to track down two ancestors Andrew & Timothy Sullivan, who were born near Skibbereen, Co.Cork Ireland. Andrew was born in 1845 and Timothy was born in 1858. Family lore has it that one of them (not sure which one) went to Australia, and one went to the USA, but possibly Canada first. My mum recalls letters and photos coming from Australia which gives some credibility to the family lore, but I am not sure where to start my search. Their father would have been Daniel Sullivan and their port of departure would have been Queenstown, Co.Cork.
I would be grateful of any suggestions as to where to begin my search.  :)
Thank you
Cath

Cath, what was the lads' mother's name?

There are three deaths in QLD for a Timothy with father Daniel, mothers Honora Leyhane, Johanna O'Mahoney and Maria Cashel.

No listing for an Andrew with father Daniel.

Hi Jamjar,

Thank you so much for taking the time to look for me. I have my fingers crossed here as I think you may have hit jackpot.... Johanna O Mahony was their mother :) :).  Timothy's date of birth was 4 April 1858 but I know they sometimes changed these dates! Andrew was Nov 1845. (cant find the date to hand :-[ )  As Sullivan is quite a common name I felt it could be like looking for a needle in a haystack! :) :)
Thank you again
