Surnames: Sullivan, Gouldman
You have an error regarding James' oldest child, Sarah.

Sarah married Edward Franklin Gouldman on 11 Feb 1869 in Perry County, Alabama (Uniontown). Unfortunately, she is listed as S. R. Sullervan in the records.

They are my GG Grandparents.

Hi Clyde,

We are cousins! Thanks for the correction on Sarah's husband. Interesting connection! Sarah was the older sister to my gr-gr-grandfather, Edward Franklin Sullivan, who was born on your gr-gr-grandmother's marriage date, but one year earlier. I suspect they must have been dating prior to that as he appears to have been named for her husband? Sarah was 19 years older than her brother, Edward Franklin Sullivan. But, he was born February 11, 1868, one year prior to Sarah's marriage to Edward Franklin Gouldman. So interesting!

Perhaps you could help me fill in that branch of my tree? I have 12 children born to Sarah and E.F. Gouldman. I do not have complete information for all of them, especially for Lilly May (b. 1871), James (b. 1873) and Ina (b.1874). I would appreciate any information you have on any of the descendants of James Noel Sullivan for which I do not have any information.

Hi, Juliet ~~ I am also a descendant of James Noel Sullivan. We host the Sullivan Family Reunion every year near Navasota. Edward Franklin Sullivan, III was my father. Most of my close family still lives in the Navasota area. Your Aunt Sophie (May), Sophie Sullivan's daughter - and George Ann (Hubert), daughter of Blanche and Vernie Hubert - attended the reunion this year... and a few others of your closer relatives.
I have some photos if you would like to see them. My email address is:
