BIOGRAPHY

JAMES SHEHAN was a native of Milton, and at 18 years of age, in August, 1862, enlisted in Company D. Young, full of spirits, fond of playing jokes, accepting hardship and easy times, with unfading good humor, he was a general favorite in the Company. Nothing improper was ever charged to him, his career with the regiment was unmarked by any remarkable incident. He returned, and was discharged with the Company July 21st, 1863. He kept a hotel successfully at Fairfax for some years. In the eighties he suffered a stroke of paralysis from which he never fully recovered. Returning to Milton he lived a quiet life until his death in 1898.
