I also have that James DONNELL served in Col. Edmund Phinney's 18th Continental Regiment 2nd Company in 1776.

He was called 1st Lt. James Donnell of York, Maine and was noted as being that while serving in Col. Scammon's Regiment at Cambridge, MA in 1775 - to late 1776.
He was promoted to Capt. and then served in the 12th MA reg. from Jan. 1777 and resigned in July 1779.

What I would also like to know is if he is the Capt. James DONNELL of the ship "Cynthia" that was involved in the so called "York Co., Maine Tea Party" during this time as well?
There is a story I read online about this, and it said that James Donnell's Uncle was Judge Jonathan Sayward also of York Co., ME.
It says that in 1774 James Donnell sailed into York Harbor from continues on.
If anyone knows more about this man I would be interested in learning about his lineage line to the York Co., Maine DONNELL's as my own 5th grt. grandmother was Elizabeth DONNELL born 1750 from Biddeford.
Thank You
