Mary Anne died in Boston in July 1945 and James died in 1955

The earliest records of the Daly family in Ireland place them in the region of what is now County Westmeath.

The ancestral clan was called Corca Adaimh and they claimed descent from a son of Niall of the Nine Hostages, (High King of Ireland, 380 – 405 AD).

The surname Daly is among the most widely found in Ireland.  It is an anglicised form of the old gaelic name "Ó'Dálaigh" derived from Dálach meaning 'one who is present at assemblies' or more commonly called Councillor or Assembly person nowadays.  The root word is Dáil, which is the official title of the Irish Parliament, called “Dáil Eireann”.

The modern Irish surnames O'Daly, Daly, Daley, Daily, Dailey and Dawley are derived from Ó Dálaigh.
