George H. Dolan

George H. Dolan is one of the family of ten children - eight sons and two daughters - of William and Ellen (Carniely) Dolan, who were natives of Ireland.

Mr. Dolan was born at Buffalo September 11, 1866, and he attended the public schools of that city until about fourteen years of age, when he started work for Plumb, Burdeet & Barnard, remaining in their nut and bolt works about two years. He then went to work for the Larkin Soap Company, with whom he spent another year, and then when seventeen years old, began learning the machinist's trade at Farrar & Treft's, where he remained four years, for the following year and a half working with E. & B. Holmes. Next he worked a year each at the Lackawanna and West Shore railroad machine shops, leaving the latter place to begin steam boating, at which he started in 1889 as oiler on the Syracuse, where he was for two seasons. He then went on the Arabia as her second engineer, serving seven seasons in the one employ. Leaving the Arabia, he, in May, 1898, took the position of engineer of the City Elevator.

On January 8, 1896, Mr. Dolan was married to Miss Margaret Febrey, of Buffalo, and they reside at No. 177 Jefferson Street, Buffalo, N.Y. Socially, he is a member of Local Harbor No. 1, Marine Engineers Beneficial Association, also of the C.M.B.A., of Buffalo, New York.

Volume I

This version of Volume II is based, with permission, on the work of the great volunteers at the Marine Captains Biographies site. To them goes the credit for reorganizing the content into some coherent order. The biographies in the original volume are in essentially random order.

Some of the transcription work was also done by Brendon Baillod, who maintains an excellent guide to Great Lakes Shipwreck Research.
