With all due respects.......... we are engaged with the realm of Greasy Grass and its considerable plethora of information.
The 1874 photo identification is attributed to M.L. Nunnally
Who knew quite a bit but is as entirely fallible as any.
Often, where conflicting record or research exists regarding LBH - both, or as many as are reasonable, will be truthful to significant degree. Dorman was listed amongst personnel at LBH, he is not listed as accompanying the Balck Hills march.
However, he carried a message to Custer and was retained. This should therefore apply to 1874.
Who would send him to Custer in 1874?
I previously posted data, which seems to have vanished, quoting and linking a news story giving the possibility that a 'son' of Sitting Bull was killed during a knife fight in 1874, possibly by someone resembling Dorman but possibly (memory lapse) at or near Bozeman. My memory on the report is clear but digging up the data which I posted, again, is hit and miss. There is little doubt that SB gave a drink of water to a man he knew and was watching being tortured to death. At some point during proceedings in the valley, after returning from the river where an army mule loaded with ammunition kicked SB in the leg and hurt him, his Cryer (whose name eludes me) was shot and seriously wounded and the young Black Moon was also shot dead whilst riding of to meet Custer's command. One Bull was covered in the blood of Bear Good Boy who was shot, and Hawkman and Deeds were dead. Hello friend!
