Hello! I'm seeking information on Patrick Corbitt (born 1815) and his wife Mary Tierney (born May 1831). We had previously thought her surname was Dearney, but have given up hope on finding any Dearneys anywhere.
Family verbal history says they had a child named Ellen that died in Ireland. Patrick came to USA around 1850 or '52, settled in central Illnois, then sent for Mary. They had several more children here in Illinois. Family verbal history says they were from Cork, but USA census records show they reported being from Tipperary.
Some of their friends/neighbors here were from Nenagh, so I'm wondering if they were too, but haven't run across any proof yet.
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Several of us here have been searching many years for their place of origin.
