SULLIVAN, Genevieve
Daily News   October 2, 1918 (Wednesday)

There passed away recently at Holyrood, Genevieve, darling child of Mr. and Mrs. Cornelius Sullivan, Harbour Main. Deceased was but in her 16th year, and until recently, when the family removed to Holyrood, was in perfect health and pursuing her studies at the Convent School. Being very studious and of a very pleasant and cheery disposition, she gained the esteem of the good Sisters and also her school companions, and she left her records in the Convent, that are surely her reward now. Some short time previous to her removal to Holyrood, she contracted a slight cold, which gradually developed until it weakened her constitution, and in spite of what medical attendance could do, passed peacefully away to blossom forth in that land where "the bud bursteth forth and the flower fadeth not". Her remains were removed to the Church of S.S. Peter and Paul, Hr. Main, where a solemn Requiem Mass was celebrated by Rev. R. M. Shean, and from thence to the little cemetery at Chapel's Cove, where the ceaseless murmur of the balmy breeze chants the requiem of love and peace over her grave. Deceased leaves, besides her sorrowing father and mother, five sisters, two brothers and a large circle of friends, both in Holyrood and Hr. Main, to whom the sympathy of the community is extended.

SULLIVAN, Jeremiah
Daily News   October 18, 1932 (Tuesday)

The large number of mourners who paid their last respects to the late Jeremiah Sullivan, known to us all as "Jerry", proved the regard in which he and his were everywhere held. The funeral took place on the 7th inst., from No. 20 Power Street, the house of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John J. Sullivan, to the railroad station and thence to Harbour Main, where he was laid to rest with his father's people. His own people sorrow most over the untimely passing of Jerry Sullivan just at his 27th birthday, but a larger family, the Brotherhood of Engineers and Locomotive Firemen, miss him, too, for in their ranks no one stood higher in esteem and affection, as one who never shirked his duty, who ever lent a willing hand to help and whose disposition had to win their hearts, and in that same Brotherhood, than which no more loyal group is known among men, to win the place that Jerry held is proof complete of his own sterling worth: where he was known, he was known as a friend, and, therefore, his loss is widely regretted. To all his friends and especially to his parents and brothers and sisters, the writer, who joins them in their grief, extends sympathy.
A FRIEND.

Sad and Fatal Accident.
Three Young Fishermen Drowned.
How It Occurred.

From Great St. Lawrence we get particulars of a sad and fatal accident which occurred there on Tuesday last. Writing under date of the 3rd instant, our special correspondent says: - "One of the most unfortunate disasters we have had to lament for a long time happened here two days ago. It was caused by the capsizing of a dory in the harbor. The boat was manned by three fine young fishermen, named, respectively, John Carpenter, of Keels, Bonavista Bay; Henry Duffitt, of Smith's Sound, Trinity Bay, and William Sutton, also of the latter place. The bodies were recovered shortly after the accident, and, having received careful attention at the hands of the kind-hearted people who had charge of them, were interred in the Church of England Cemetery."
