correcting data for Andrew Caperton Dolan

In Reply to: Re: Mathew Alexander and Andrew Caperton Dolan by Honaker Family Assn. of 976

Honaker Family Assn,

Thank you for sharing information with me about the Dolan line.


(1) The Greenbrier Historical Society lists the following marriage bond:

Monroe Co., West Virginia Marriage Bonds 1799-1850
Matthew Dolen -md- 21 Jul 1821 Betsy Wantz
Parents not listed

(2) I have a photo of a draft card for Andrew Caperton Dolan dated June 15, 1917, issued in Indianapolis, Indiana. The birth date listed on the card matches the data you have.

(3) I have a photo of the 1930 census for Greene County, Iowa, and Andrew C. Dolan is listed. His birth place is listed as WV, and his age at last birthday is listed as 37. This would put his birth year at 1893 and not 1886...but we feel sure that this is the same Andrew C. Dolan because my father (the youngest of Andrew's two sons--the older son William died many years ago) has notes written by his mother that Andrew married her (Helen Greenfield) on Aug 31, 1927. (Iowa Official Form No. 143-8). The ceremony was performed in Jefferson, (Greene County) Iowa. Andrew apparently left the farm in Iowa before or just after my father was born, and the story is that he returned two years later to suggest that Helen and William leave the farm with him without my father. Helen refused, and Andrew left and was never heard of again by the family. I am still searching for death information for him.

My father, Robert Roy Dolan, was born Oct. 4, 1934 in Iowa. He and Pamela Joan Haas had six children. I, Daniel Patrick Dolan, am the second.

If you would like me to email these document photos to you, please give me an email address. I also have many other document photos, including census records, death certificates and marriage certificates for various Dolan family members. I can send any of these to you as well.

I will share pertinent information with you as I get it.

Best wishes,
Daniel Dolan
