"SULLIVAN--The peole living in the neighborhood of Linden Avenue, Hayes Valley, have had a prolific theme of conversation during the last few days. It is the unusual and peculiiar circumstances attending the death of Martin SULLIVAN of 622 Linden Avenue between Laguna and Buchannan streets, which occured last Thursday [16 Oct 1884] night. SULLIVAN was an express wagon driver who leaves a wife and seven children with a stipend of $2,000 from the Knights of Honor. He was recently stricken down with pneumonia and was attended by Dr. J.F. SULLIVAN of Van Ness Ave, but he grew worse rapidly. Last Wednesday night, he expected each moment to die, and he seemed to pass away peacefully as they watched by his side. His eyes were closed and his heart stopped beating, and he was given up for dead, but the color never left his cheeks, and after 20 minutes he opened his eyes and exclaimed, "No, I didn't die that time. They're not ready for me just yet in heaven, but you may as well prepare everyting, for I'll soon leave you". Thurday night he apparently breathed his last again and never rallied. He was pronounced dead and put on ice and kept until Sunday before he was buried. When in his coffin, his cheeks were still flushed, and all who saw him remarked "How natural he looks. He does not sem to be dead, but only sleeping." Source: San Francisco Daily Morning Call, 21 Oct 1884, p.7. Transcribed by Sandi Bordelon.

There appears to be a general impression that his business affairs have of late been anything but prosperous; but on the other hand his well-known religious views are considered by his friends as an unmistakably satisfactory answer to the suggestion of suicide. Mrs. SWAIN is positive that he took laudanum by mistake as he has been troubled for months with nervous irritation, which prevented him from sleeping and had been taking valerian in large doses to quiet his nervous system. The medicines stood together on the same shelf. He was a native of Nantucket (Mass.), aged 47 years, and had been identified with the leading charitable institutions of San Francisco since 1855. He was a strong personal friend of Starr KING and was connected with the first Unitarian church to the time of his death." Source: Stockton Daily Independent (San Joaquin Co., CA) 15 June 1872.
