||Moore County, NC at Bethlehem Baptist Church
- Jesse Sullivan has always been a bit of a mystery. He clearly descends from the Sullivan families for Davidson/Rowan/Guilford counties and is a very close relative to Rev. Joel Sullivan [1791-aft 1860] but unfortunately no information has yet come to light to prove who his father was. Y-DNA test results have proven that male Sullivan descendants of Jesse share the same Y-DNA as other Sullivan males descending from the Davidson County Sullivan families confirming that Jesse's father, grandfather, etc. were in fact Sullivans.
It is believed that he was the grandson of William Sullivan [1758-1838]. William was born in MD and migrated to Guilford County, NC then to present day Davidson County, NC. Rev. Joel Sullivan was one of his many children. The connection by many that Joel Sullivan was the father of Jesse seems like a natural one given that they both migrated to Moore County, NC and lived quite near each other in the Bethlehem Church area west of Carthage. But court records below show that Jesse was listed as an orphan in Davidson County in 1830 leading to speculation that  his father had died,  one of his parents had died and the other remarried or  his family had migrated away from the area leaving him on his own. It is possible that Joel could be his father in scenario 2 or 3 but neither is conclusive at this time.
Jesse married Celia Bean [also from Davidson County] and they can be found in 1840 living with her brother/cousin Jesse Bean [1802-1869]. They were early members of Bethlehem Baptist Church and are both buried in the old section of the cemetery.
