The after-Jim-Hefferon CTAN also has something nice:

http://ctan.org/topic/endnote

Perhaps you could make macro using \footnote or \endnote with two
arguments, the first for identifying the quotation, the second for
the bibliographical information.

Additionally, there are two packages in

http://ctan.org/topic/cite-foot

for "citations in footnotes". Maybe you can combine one of them with the
fn2end package from the earlier topic.

This reminds me of

http://ctan.org/pkg/endheads

Hope this helps, while I have only reported some topic and package
description pages, never tested any of the packages so far, never looked
at their documentations
