Welcome to the History of the Sullivan Burgess Family Tree
If you see someone you recognize, let me know. If you have information on someone, please share it with me. I have a lot of material on the Laughlen, Davy, Glendinning, Hyde and Thomson lines, but the Burgess and Scrivens lines need additional work.
I am presently researching my Burgess, Trivett and Shannon lines, along with trying to catching up on emails and modernizing the web site.
The full works of Dr. E. Ross Laughlin published in 1955, is now incorporated in my Laughlen line. I have strained to source what I have been able to, but most of this material was collected by letter and interview and would have been lost forever, if it wasn't transcribed and shared by Dr. Laughlin. (Boy was that a lot of work)
When time permits, I am inputting and sourcing the complete works of Hyde Genealogy, by Reuben Hyde Walworth published in 1864. I am contemplating of incorporating the works of Ethel MacPherson. Ethel published her book "Descendants of David and Mary Thomson" in 1958.
If you reproduce this material, please link the transcripts and sources back to www.SandiSullivan.com, so we can have an updated version of our family tree.
Enjoy your voyage into my past, possibly you will discover some of yours. I am starting to believe we are all interconnected :} Please Email me and let me know if you discovered something or have additional information to enhance our tree. I retain all updates and exchanges on file and one day someone you're looking for will possibly email me.
If you would like additional access to this our tree, please request with the following information. What branch you are related to, whom you are most interested in and your full name and email. Please specify if you or your parents are already on the tree. Without this information, I will not grant greater access.
Dear Ancestor, Your Tombstone stands among the rest, Neglected and alone. The name and dates are chiseled here, On polished marbled stone. It reaches out to all who care, Though it is too late to mourn. You do not know that I exist, You died and I was born. Yet each of us are cells of you, In flesh, in blood, and bone. The place you filled so many years ago, I wonder if you could have known, Would spread among the ones you left In all the seeds you've sown. I wonder if you lived and loved? I wonder if you ever knew? That someday I would find you in this spot, And come to visit you?
If you have any questions or comments about the information on this site, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
