Alfred A. Stratton was an 18-year-old blacksmith when he enlisted at Ellicott, Chautauqua County, New York, August 19, 1863, as a substitute for August Lass, who had been drafted. He was mustered into Company G, 147th New York Infantry. Private Stratton was severely wounded by cannon shot at Petersburg, Virginia, June 18, 1864, requiring the amputation of both arms. He was promoted to sergeant and mustered out for disability at Alexandria, Virginia, September 27 (or October 4), 1864. After the war he married Julia Elizabeth Johnson at Brooklyn, New York, in 1865. They later moved to Washington, D.C., where Alfred remained until he died. Alfred A. Stratton was buried in Mt. Olivet Cemetery June 16, 1874. After Alfred's death in 1874, Julia married John J. Sweeney at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Washinton, D.C., June 15, 1877.
