 Additional Info:
During a vacation trip to Ireland in 1996, my cousin Pat Daly informed me that James had fallen off the
roof of a house and permanently injured his back.  James was confined to a wheelchair for the rest of
his life.  Pat was also of the opinion that James never married.

The following information was obtained by a researcher (George O'Reilly) and was supplied by the Royal
Hospital:
  James Daly of Culloville admitted on 18 Feb 1896 at age 27.
  His occupation was given as "farmers son".
  He was a paraplegic from age 11.
  He was dismissed from the hospital on 13 Jun 1940.

James was written up in the book "History of the O'Daly's" as being a major contributor.  This book 
was published in 1937, so it would appear that his contributions came while he was in the hospital.

The GRO civil death record for James indicated he died a bachelor.
