About Patrick Sullivan and Rose Leddy

About Patrick Sullivan and Rose Corcoran

Not much is known about Patrick Sullivan except that he lived in Dennbane/Dennbawn, Denn Parish, County Cavan, Ireland. Records have been located which express the Sullivan last name with the Soraghan/Soroghan/Sorohan spelling. His wife, Rose (c1804-1874), is identified in various documents as having the maiden name of Leddy, McCabe and/or Corcoran. However, it is believed her maiden name was Corcoran. She also is from Ireland, most likely Drumbarry, Co. Cavan. They had at least 10 children, many which immigrated to the US. The children include: Mary (died before 1915 probably in Ireland); Rose Sullivan (died before 1915 probably in Ireland); Michael (c1829-1915); Ellen (c1830-1900); Thomas (c1831-b1901&1911 in Ireland); James (c1931-1898); Patrick (c1831-1881); Andrew (c1833-1881); Philip J. (1840-1915) [See also the Sullivan/Connor Genelaogy Blog]; and Matthew (1841-a1916). It is believed that neither Patrick nor Rose immigrated but lived and died in Ireland.

Carrickaboy Glebe New Cemetery

The new cemetery which serves the Roman Catholic parish of Drumavaddy is extremely well kept and has a wonderful view over the Cavan Countryside.  Three headstones were viewed which had the Sullivan name, all of which are noted as being from Denbawn.  These could possibly be relations, but at this time, no connection is known.
