James M. Dooley
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 7, 1858
Virginia, USA
Death: Aug. 10, 1927
Kanawha County
West Virginia, USA

James was the son of Henry Whitfield Dooley and Mary Elizabeth Hastings, and the husband of Eliza Adeline Knight.

His DOB above is based on his age in Kanawha County's 1927 death register (age 69 years/2 months/23 days). For some reason, his death certificate is totally different and in error -- it states that he was born on 2 Feb 1878 and his age was 49 years/6 months/8 days when he died, but he was 3 years old in the 1860 census. :)

James and Eliza were the proud parents of seven children (named in Eliza's memorial).

FindAGrave contributor "Pj" found the following obituary in the 11 August 1927 (Thursday) edition of the Charleston Gazette (Charleston, WV):

"James M. Dooley, 69, of Dry Branch, died yesterday afternoon at a local hospital. He is survived by his widow and six children, Marion and Cora Dooley of Dry Branch; Mrs. L. H. Curry of Whitesville; Charles, George and Jess Dooley, and one sister, Mrs. Bettie Monohan.
Funeral services will be held this afternoon at 3 o'clock at Dry Branch, with Rev. Charles Pettry in charge."
