Thomas K Sullivan

So I started this blog to share the genealogy that I have with family members, not thinking that I would find anything  new that hasn't already been found.  But today I was looking at the site and found this:
   Go to this link and look at the census page (I love that I can see the ACTUAL page!)  It is the 1850 (US) census.
    I first saw Thomas  K Sulivan  (50 yrs old)
                        Caroline Sulivan   (38 yrs old)
                      Joseph Sulivan
                      Margaret Sulivan
                      Lafaette Sulivan
                      Maria A(?) Sulivan
                      Mary Sulivan
                      Sarah Sulivan
                      William Sulivan
All this matches what we already have in our genealogy, but if you look just below this entry, in residence #162, you'll see another Sullivan family:
                      Thomas Sulivan (37 Yrs old)
                      Martha Sulivan   (26 yrs old)
                      Mary E Sulivan
                      William K(?) Sulivan
Now look down at residence #164 and you see another Sullivan family:
                       George Sulivan  (62 yrs old)
                       Sarah Sulivan  (56 yrs old)
Then in residence #165 is another:
                       Thomas Sulivan  (30 yrs old)
(I spelled Sulivan exactly as it was spelled in the Census.)

    So I'm guessing that all these people are related, but I can't tell how:  are they brothers, cousins, father/son?  I guess we'll have to keep our eyes open and see if we can find anything that would show us how they are related.
