David V. Sullivan, a well known retired farmer and business man, died Monday at his home in the northeast part of town, aged 68 years, 2 months and 5 days. He had been ill for several months.

Mr. Sullivan, son of John and Rachel (Sears) Sullivan, was born March 30, 1871 in Astoria township. He was united in marriage on Dec. 25, 1903 to Miss Rosella Schisler. To this union were born one son, Roy Sullivan, and one daughter, Mrs. Lenore Ames, both of Astoria.
