Additional notes

Source for notated version: - Mary O'Neill [O'Neill]. Mary was Sergeant James O'Neill's sister, who also emigrated to Chicago. They are no relation to Chief Francis O'Neill, but fiddler James assisted greatly on Chief O'Neill's first two volumes, and Chief O'Neill wrote in a letter to A.P. Graves that Mary was skillful on the mandolin and violin.
