"FRANCIS O'NEILL (1849-1936)-was born on Bantry Bay, near the Irish resort city of Glengarriff, Cork County, Ireland. He married Anna Rogers (1849-1934) a native of Clare County, Ireland. After sailing the oceans of the world, O’Neill settled at Chicago in 1873, and became a policeman. He retired as General Superintendent of Chicago Police in 1905. The O’Neill family wintered in Ocean Springs at "Glengarriff", his beachfront home, from 1914 until his death in 1936. O'Neill wrote seven books on Irish music. Some of them are: O'Neill's Music of Ireland; O'Neill's Irish Music; O'Neill's Dance Music of Ireland; Waifs and Strays; and Minstrels and Music of Ireland. Captain O’Neill gave his personal library, which included 1500 volumes of Irish music and history to the University of Notre Dame in 1931. Captain Francis O’Neill passed on January 26, 1936. His remains were interred in the Mount Olivet Cemetery at Chicago"
