Ed Sullivan story correction

ED SULLIVAN CORRECTION

The parents of newspaper columnist and television star Ed Sullivan were Peter Sullivan and Elizabeth Smith of Amsterdam. A previous story in Focus on History and my book “Lost Mohawk Valley” incorrectly stated that Peter and Elizabeth had a son named Florence who died as an infant in 1899. I regret the error and thank Ed Sullivan’s granddaughter Margo Precht Speciale for pointing it out.
