Here are a few of the letters and notes that I have
gathered during my genealogical research. I hope to add more as
I get better organized.
I received the above note from Leslie Daley of 501 Westview Dr #306 in Hastings MN 55033 in March of 1993. Leslie, in turn, had received it in December of 1954 from Olive H. Dealy, widow of General John Anderson Dealy. Leslie told me that the references to James and Richard were added by him to the original in an attempt to make the note more meaningful to him. Leslie Daley died on August 23, 1995.
I obtained the above note from Jim Dealy of 110 Ferncliff Circle of Daphne, AL 36526 in September of 1993. Jim got it from his father's records (William A. Dealy II) which showed that the letter came from Edith Septima Daly. (General Dealy's sister). It may have come to William Dealy by way of Evelyn Board (General Dealy's daughter) who was in correspondence with William.
