TIMOTHY P. SULLIVAN
A Modest Citizen of Concord, Who Has Done Things
New Hampshire is known as the "Granite State," and Concord is its capital. Moreover the capital city is noted for its extensive granite quarries and the superiority of their product, more than anything else; though Concord wagons and Concord harness were known all over the country for many years in the past.
The man who has done more to exploit Concord granite-to call the world's attention to its superiority for building and monumental purposes-than any other, or all others combined, is a modest gentleman of Irish birth, 77 years of age, now retired from business, but seen nearly every day on Main street, whose name appears at the head of this article.
There were Sullivans in this country in goodly numbers, before the Revolution and some hundreds of them, including the valiant General John Sullivan of Durham—the ablest and most trusted of Washington's lieutenants-were enrolled in the patriot service during the struggle in which our our independence was won, but this one came later.
Timothy P. Sullivan was born at Millstreet, Cork County, Ireland, December 16, 1844, son of Patrick and Mary (Moynihan) Sullivan.

This Bartholomew Riordan, by the way, married a sister of the late Maj. Daniel B. Donovan of Concord, and made his home at West Quincy, Mass., where he accumulated a handsome property and reared a large family, and where his widow and children, now prominent citizens, are still living. Mr. Sullivan's father died at the age of 85 years, and his remains, with those of his wife and Bartholomew Riordan, are buried in the Catholic cemetery at West Quincy.
After his three years of service at Quincy, Mr. Sullivan came to Concord in the employ of the same firm. His health was not very strong and the work was easier here. He commenced on plain work, the young cutters never being assigned to ornamental work. Feeling that if he had the opportunity he could soon learn the carver's
