Birth: Aug. 5, 1824, Ireland
Death: Sep. 29, 1899
Platte Clove
Greene County
New York, USA

Civil War veteran.
James Dolan, born in Ireland, lived in Hunter Township, NY from at least the late 1830s, when his father contributed to build the RC church in Hunter. He worked in the tanneries, but by 1855 owned a farm in Platte Clove.
He enlisted in Jan 1864 in the newly-formed Co. E of the 15th Regiment, New York Engineers, and served as a private and artificer. He later applied for a pension for an injury to his head from being thrown down a hatchway of the steamer Thomas Scott in a storm on Chesapeake Bay on March 25, 1864. He was mustered out at Camp Barry, D.C. on June 13, 1865, when his pay was stopped for 41 cartridges and 1 screwdriver.
James was present with his regiment in April 1865, when they were at Appomattox Court House, and presumably witnessed the surrender of Lee's army.
