Nearly all of the Feeney research and much of the Galligan, was done by my Aunt, Lois Feeney Knapp of Mason City, IA. Some help with the O'Byrne and Mullen lines was provided by Jeanne Dahlman of St. Paul, MN. Mr. James E. Anderson of Overland Park, Kansas has been an invaluable source of Galligan history.
Many people have been a great deal of help to me while researching the Daly family. In Cresco, IA, Mrs. Dorothy Hovey and Mr. Don Conway, as well as Mrs. Sylvia Lee and the Winneshiek County Genealogical Society. In Decorah, Mrs. Mae Henry, the researchers at the Decorah Genealogy Association and Stan Jeffers. Also the good people at the Winneshiek County Recorders Office.
My Aunt Leone De Graves Daly of Sacramento, CA and cousin Mary Margaret Web in Alta Vista, IA have been invaluable in their recollections and assistance. Also; Aunt Sister Helen Marie Feeney and Sister Angela Feeney at the Presentation Convent, Dubuque, IA, Pat Henry, Sheila Moth, Claudia Daly Kimener, John L. Bird, Bob Mosher, Kristin Ottino and in Woodstock, IL, Patsy Nelson and Melissa Cooney.
The Fillmore County, MN History Center, the Minnesota Historical Society, the Iowa Genealogical Society, the Family History Library, Oakland, CA and Linda Seward and her staff at the Berkeley Public Library.
Last, but certainly not least, my research assistants, Steven Clarke, Brendan Daly and Mary O'Sullivan.
