      James J Sullivan, hop grower one mile east of Belfast, is one of the successful and prosperous men of Skagit county, a man who has obtained his worldly possessions by his own energy and ability. He was born in Cork settlement, New Brunswick, April 17, 1876, the son of John and Margaret (Donovan) Sullivan, both of whom were native of New Brunswick and died there a number of years ago. Young Sullivan received a common school education in New Brunswick, then in 1889 came to Edison, Washington, going to work at once for his uncle, Daniel Sullivan. He remained in his employ for seven years, then leased sixty acres of land on Jarman prairie. Seventeen acres of this land are in hops and part of the rest in hay, the two being the principal crops of the farm.
      In 1900 Mr Sullivan married Miss Phoebe Chessie, a native of Hanwell settlement, New Brunswick, born in 1876. She is the daughter of Ephraim and Frances (Burgoyne) Chessie, farmers of the province, until they came to Washington and settled in Skagit county, on Jarman prairie. Mrs Sullivan is one of their seven daughters, all of whom reside on Jarman prairie or in its vicinity. Mr and Mrs Sullivan have three children: John A, Daniel L, and Phoebe L. In politics Mr Sullivan is an Independent, in church membership a Catholic. He raises some live stock, having eight head of draft horses, fifteen hogs and twenty-five head of cattle, some of the last names being for dairy purposes. Mr Sullivan is an active man, one of energy and shrewdness. He is one of the popular men of his community, respected by all for his excellent traits of character.
