I've got bottles from 4 different Sullivans. I suspect these Sullivans are all related, but I don't know how.
Florence A. Sullivan is listed as a saloon owner from 1903-1917. John J. Sullivan owned that same saloon up to 1902, so my first guess was that Florence was John's wife, and took over the business. That was a bad guess. Apparently Florence (b. 1873 in Ireland) was a man, as he's listed that way in the census. Maybe he was John J.'s son, brother or cousin.
David S. Sullivan is listed as a bottler from 1896-1898.
Jeremiah Sullivan is listed as a saloon owner from 1892-1896. Note that the Jeremiah Sullivan bottle says "W Washington DC", not "NW" or "SW", but just plain "W".
