I believe my great grandmother Johanna Maria Sullivan (the spelling of her first and middle names may be wrong) was born in Ireland about 1867 (I've been told in Killarney, Kerry, Ireland, but I'm not sure of this).  She immigrated to the USA in 1885 and married Michael Matthew Kelley (Kelly) in 1888.  They lived most of their lives in New London, Connecticut, USA.  He was a chauffeur; she a homemaker.  I know nothing of her origins, parents, siblings.  I'd like some information about that side of my family.  I believe her family lived in Connecticut in the late 1800's and early-mid 1900s as I think a sister (or perhaps cousin) with the last name Sullivan was a witness at her wedding.  Any info re the Sullivan family is appreciated.  Thank you is advance as I don't know how to thank responders via Wikitree.

Johanna's siblings might have been named Cornelius, Robert, and Thomas.  I know her niece was named Josephine Sulllivan as she was her daughter Mary Ann's maid-of-honor at her New London, CT Catholic wedding in 1916.  Any help appreciated!
