Oh my word!!!
Yes you could be right!
BY the way,,, I found out the info on film stars name ,,
a Eliza Gene Tierney b nov 1920 Brooklyn N. York
died 6 Nov 1991 houston Texas she had 2 siblings,,,,
Patricia Tierney b 23 May 1924 brooklyn . died july 1995 San Diago California.
Howard Tierney b ap 1918 Brooklyn,
died 16 ap1990 Florida.
Parents,,,,Howard Sherwood Tierney b 1885 FAirfield Connecticut .
wife Belle Lavinia Taylor b 1915 Fairfield the wife maybe a second wife as her birth date does not fit in.
These should lead back to Ireland, but i am worried that it just maybe a yarn spun!? you know when a grandmother tells stories to her grandchildren? a little white lie now and then.
but alas its all my rellie has. he does however say she always kept repeating it! sooo maybe!!
the Patrick Tierney b 1833/4 Mayo my rellie,s anc ,was married too a Mary Leonard b 1846/8 and she too came from Mayo.both thier fathers named John.
I have remembered where the name Duffy came up in passing
(referring to my rellie remembering that is) he said that when he asked his father after his grandmother had died,about the Tierney family , he said all he recalled once was that name being bought up (while he was in the same room), and whoever it was who mentioned it , told never to mention it again. but he could not remember anything else.
Which probably sounds worst than it was probably? They were cathelics.
I did come accross a John / Ann Tierney death in Liverpool
that may have been our Patricks parents at the time they all came over from the famine.but its proving it?
Also i have come across a patrick James Tierney b 1836
ireland. i think his parents are James Tierney / Mary Dunn.
He could be a cousin to our Patrick b 1833/4.
They went to America and died there.
The name James runs in the family.
( So his Patrick James father could be our patricks fathers brother)
Flo ,,, thanks again.
