I am sure you mean Charles Tierney. I do have a Charles George Tierney, b 11 Oct 1867, Ferryville, Wisconsin. Father Patrick Dorsey Tierney b. 25 Feb 1836. Patrick's father was Thadius Tierney, born in Ireland.
Charles' brother, Harry Archie Tierney died in Lansing, Alamakee, Iowa and four of his ninr siblings were born there, so I know there is some connection if only that the families knew each other.
I am thinking there is a possiblity that your Charles was an uncle or some type of relation since his birthdate puts him in that generation.
