bullet  General Notes:

The following is from Jerry O'Connor

So you are a Duhawk! Dumb name don't you think? Anyway, I have made hard copies of what I consider the important messages and am now trying to sort of think things out. You asked about "Bud" Meehan. All I can remember is, he lived with his mother on a farm about a mile or so west of Denison. I used to love to visit because I could sit on the fence and watch the steam engines of the Chicago & Northwestern RR roar by. Several years later he was farming a place near Buck Grove, Iowa. I remember attending Mass at the little church in Buck Grove but little more than that. I do remember him planting corn using a two horse team but not much else.
