James, known as Jem, was likely born in or around 1892, but later emigrated to the US.

The Longford Leader of 21 Sept. 1918 reported the death of Jem Sullivan of Barrack Street, Granard, who had served with an American regiment. According to the artilce, he enlisted in December 1917 and was on active service from May 1918.

Unfortunately little else is currently known about James, and we would welcome any more detail about him and his life. 

Parents Names: Son of Mr & Mrs Sullivan, Barrack Street, Granard
Notes: It is probable that James was originally from Co. Cavan, and his parents later lived on Barrack Street in Granard. He was one of three James Sullivans that died in August and September 1918 with the US Army and are buried in France (link below)
