I am trying to find the maiden name of Julia Sullivan of the following Sullivan family from Ridgeway, Iowa County. Am attempting to determine whether her maiden name was Lynch or rule her out as one of my ancestors. Julia and her husband John are last seen in the 1910 Census residing in Ridgeway. One of my Lynch family members, Margaret Lynch Tobin, is enumerated directly under this Sullivan family in the 1910 Census.
The following is from the 1880 Census when they lived in Arena.
John Sullivan, age 42, b. IRE (1838-1840)
Julia Sullivan, age 42 b. IRE (1838-1843)
Denis Sullivan, son, age 18 b. WI (1862)
Mary Sullivan, dau, age 14 b. WI (1864-1866)
John Sullivan, son, age 13 b. WI (1867)
Ellen Sullivan, dau, age 9 b. WI (1871)
Francis Sullivan, son, age 6 b. WI (1874)
Johannah Sullivan, dau, age 4 b. WI (1876)
Elizabeth Sullivan, dau, age 1 b. WI (1879)
John and Julia may be buried in St. Bridget's Cemetery, Ridgeway. They do no appear in the 1920-1930 censuses.
I thought perhaps Julia's maiden name may appear on a marriage registration, death certificate or on the childrens birth registrations. From the census data it would appear all the children were born in Iowa County.
Any assistance or lookups to find this maiden name will be most appreciated.
