Michael Sullivan, elder, never settled in Saratoga
Springs. According to John Conway's family
oral history, Michael and Julia returned to Ireland,
specifically to Kenmare from where he was originally.
Michael Emmett Sullivan settled in Saratoga Springs;
note Census 1855 which lists him living
Margaret Sullivan Moran, age 18 yrs.
Issue: in 1855 he would have been 13 yrs.
There is confusion in the 1855 and 1860 Saratoga
Springs census in other instances. The 1860
census has him working in Greenfield.
- Where did
Michael and Julia live in NYC?
- When did Michael
and Julia return to Ireland?
- Where in Ireland
did they return?
- If they returned
they must have done so by 1855 when Michael
Emmett, their youngest, went to live with his
sister in Saratoga Springs. Can we find a
death record for Michael or Julia in the Irish
archives after 1855? Can we find Griffiths
Valuation records for Michael?
