Obituary of Charles Sullivan

Charles Sullivan one of the best known farmers of Mercer township died at his home last Friday evening March 15, 1912, at 9:30 after an illness of several weeks, mainly of old age, aged 81 years and 21 days. The deceased was born in Southern Ireland near the city of Cork, February 22, 1831 and when a few months old was brought to this country by his parents who located in Philadelphia where the subject of this sketch grew to manhood. He has often told us of his working in a printing office when a boy and before the printing press had been perfected to a degree that it had a "fly" and his work was to catch the paper as the bed of the press came through and pulled it off. This he told with a great deal of enthusiasm. When eighteen years of age he made a trip to the gold fields of California, going by way of the Isthmus of Panama. In California he followed various occupations and finally returned east crossing the plains and located at Dubuque, Iowa in 1856, where he was married to Miss Margaret Geary in 1857 and to them were born eleven children, eight of whom are living and are John Sullivan, Carl, Nevada; Katie Sullivan, Otterburn, Iowa; Mrs. Anna Glew, Dubuque, Iowa; Mary Sullivan of St. Joseph's Hospital, Kansas City, Mo.; Dennis, Joe and Charles of Corning; and Mrs. Maggie Scanlan, Brooks, Iowa. In 1875 Mr. Sullivan removed from Dubuque county to Adams County and purchased the farm on which he lived until the time of his death. His wife died in Adams County in 1881. In 1884 he was married to Miss Anna Maney, who survives him. To them were born six children Nellie, Lizzie, Nora, Frances, William and Dan. The Funeral was held from St. Patrick's Catholic Church on Monday Morning conducted by Father Richard Dollard . Internment in Calvary Cemetery. Mr. Sullivan had been very successful since coming to this county and has a large tract of good land in Mercer township. He will be missed by his large circle of friends. End of Obit

When Charles died his second family fought the estate and many hard feelings lasted a long time.

Charles Sullivan, it has been said, was sort of a mean man. He chased his wife Margaret down the road with a bull whip. Also if you went to their house after dark you had to be careful as they might shoot at you.
