Mr. Sullivan was born and raised in our midst and his life is an open history.  He professed religion many years ago and united with the M. E. church.  Some years back he renewed his covenant relationship with the church and since then has lived an upright Christian life.

His last illness was caused from an attack of influenza, which he contracted a year ago, and developed into pulmonary trouble, from which he never recovered.

He leaves to mourn his departure his wife, five children, two brothers and many relatives and friends.

After a short service, which was conducted at the house of Rev. J. L. Miller, pastor of the M. E. church, interment was made in the Macedonia cemetery.
