  • Notes 
    • Jack was a Shop Foreman at the New York & Ontario Western Railroad. Many in the Cullivan Family worked in that East side Oswego facility in its heyday. He later worked at the College Power Plant in Oswego.
      Jack served in the US Navy during World War I from July 6, 1917-5 July 1920. He told the officials he was 18 when he was in fact only 17. Jack and sister-in-law Gertrude Armstrong were the "in laws" who were always depended upon to "take charge and organize" during family crisis or wakes in the Armstrong-Shea clan.
      Jack and wife Gert lived on West 5th St. next to the old Methodist church just 2 blocks North of the family home of Gert's youth. Jack was an avid hunter and fisherman. He also enjoyed bowling. His family remember him fishing from a small boat on Catfish Creek. He took daughter Mary Lou and friends even a few times.
      Converting to Catholicism on his wedding day, Jack was a devout communicant of St. John's in Oswego.
      Years after his wife's early death, Jack remarried. He is buried beside his beloved Gert in St. Pauls Cemetery.
