Discrepancy: Logan County, Ohio as place of birth according to info. in Patricia Olson's family tree book. Photo copy of Family Group Record said birth was Champaign Co., Ohio Obituary copied from old paper: "Aaron Sullivan was born in Champaign county, February 21, 1811 where his boyhood days were spent. He was married June 20, 1837 to Jane Lippincott and lived here a few years, where three of their children were born: they moved to Kendall County, settled on a farm in Coffin Grove township, Delaware County when there were but a few families in the township. Here he lived for many years, raised his family, consisting of six boys and three girls, all of who survive but one, the eldest girl, Mrs. O. Wellman. His sainted wife died September 14, 1886. From an obituary written at the time of her death we quote the following: 'She led such an unselfish Christian life that her loss will be keenly felt, having reared a large family, all of whom are living, six sons and three dau! ghters, many of whom gathered around her couch in her last illness to comfort and support her, she being the first of the number to be called hense.' Brother Sullivan was converted about the year 1856 baptized by Reverend Bixby, united with the Wesleyan Methodist church of Masonville, and by voice and means has been a strong supporter of the reform principles of our Zion Not only did the early settlers of the new country find a resting place and refreshments in their hospitable home, but our brethren have found an open door and hearty welcome into his home to refresh themselves when weary. Quarterly meetings and conference times his home was always thronged. Since the death of Sister Sullivan, Father Sullivan has made his home at John Latimer's, his son-in-law, where he was kindly cared for by Jennie, his daughter. They lived in Manchester, Iowa. Being feeble in health and quite deaf he has not enjoyed church privileges of late. His death was caused by old age and general de! bility. Though feeble for years, his lamp of life went out after but a few hours of pain and struggle Saturday, March 17, 1894 at 5 p.m. being able to ride out the day previous to his death. The funeral service was held in the Wesleyan Methodist church of Masonville. Despite the inclement of weather a large congregation of friends and relatives gathered to pay the last debt of respect to a loved one. The writer (Meaning Reverend E.R. Dodd) preached in the liberty of the Spirit from Hebrews 11:4, to an interested audience." written by E.R.Dodd

Seven oldest children are also married. All live in Delaware County with the exception of Andrew J., who lives in the Indian Territory. Mr. Aaron Sullivan's principal business is stock raising; He votes the Republican ticket; He crossed the Mississippi River, November 3, 1844 at Lyons Iowa, and in the same year made a permanent settlement where he now lives; at that time there was but 24 families in Delaware County, Ia. and but four families in Coffins Grove township.

Manchester, Press of March 22, 1894 Mr. Aaron Sullivan, an old and much respected citizen of this county, died at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Jennie Latimer, in this city, Saturday, March 17, at 5 o'clock p.m., and was buried in the Coffin's Grove cemetery, near Masonville, Tuesday, the 20th, under the auspices of the church of his choice. The funeral was largely attended by neighbors and friends. Mr. Sullivan was born in Champaign county, Ohio, Feb. 21,1811. He was married to Jane Lippincott, June 20,1837. They moved to Iowa, Nov. 23,1844, and settled in Coffin's Grove township Delaware county when there were but four families in the township and few in the county. He was a farmer and stock raiser. He settled on the farm in the western part of Coffins, grove, where he lived for many years and raised his family, consisting of six boys and three girls, of whom all survive him but one, the eldest daughter, Mary Wellman. His wife died in September 1886. In politics h! e was a republican, a man of strong convictions, and when he espoused a cause he did it with his whole soul. He was one of the founders of the Wesleyan Methodist church at Masonville, in the township where he settled, and was a consistent member and regular attendant at church. His family are pretty well scattered. The youngest daughter, Jennie Latimer lives in Manchester, with whom he made his home after his wife died. The second youngest son, Henry F., lives near Masonville and A. R. lives in Dell Rapids, South Dakota, A. J. lives in southern Kansas at Coffeyville. All those were present at his funeral services. I. N. and S. P. lives in Idaho, L. M. in California and Sarah E. Alcock in Louisiana.

1870 Census , Delaware County, Coffins Grove Township, page 031. 1860 Census, Delaware County, Coffins Grove Township, page 248 JANE: Manchester Press of Sept. 17,1886 Died: Sullivan At Masonville, September l4, l886, Mrs. Jane Sullivan, in her 67th year. Jane Lippincott Sullivan wife of Aaron Sullivan, of Masonville, died on the morning of the 14th of September, 1886, at the residence of her son-in-law, Oscar Wellman. The deceased was born November 7, 1819. She leaves a husband and nine children to mourn her loss. As is well known to many residents of our county, Mr. and Mrs. Sullivan came to Iowa in 1844, and endured the many privations of a pioneer life, and as all friends and neighbors can testify who were privileged to be entertained under their humble, but hospitable roof, there was never a more hearty welcome offered, than was always ready for their guests. Auntie Sullivan, as she was familiarly known to the younger generations, had a smile for all she met, and pos! sessed of a very hopeful, cheerful disposition, and great simplicity of character, wedded to a generous loving heart, it was always a pleasure to meet her. She led such an unselfish Christian life, that her loss will be keenly felt, having reared a large family all of whom are living, six sons and three daughters, many of whom gathered around her couch in her last illness for comfort and support her, she being the first of the number to be called hence. We as neighbors and friends, offer to her lone companion our warmest sympathy in his great bereavement, at the time of life when, more than any other he feels the lack of strength to bear up under this heavy affliction. May he have the faith ever exercised by his devoted wife, and find strength to buoy him up till his appointed time comes, when he shall say "I have finished my course." is the hope of his friends, and may the example of a hopeful, trustful mother, be a guide and comfort to children left without a mother's love! .
