Looking for Relatives of John, b. 1800-1820. Married to Bridget Ford, dau of Francis or Frank. Children Thomas, Ann Hanora and James were born in Killeenadeema 1833 thru 1841.

My gggrandfather, James Tierney married Ellen OMalley and raised 9 children in Amador County, Ca, after marrying in 1867 in Louisville, KY, while staying with the Tully's. Later moving to San Francisco around 1900, they lived on Dubose and Clinton Place. Tierney sisters lived there until the last one died in 1969.
Ellen Omalley's mother, (our family says Bridget King, some say Cecelia Joyce) married a Tierney after her first husband died. These Tierneys lived in Pittsburg and were very close to the Tully's of Louisville, Ky ( Ellen's sister, Mary E.'s family). Patrick and Molly Tierney may have been related to my Tierney family.
Ellen's other sisters, Ann Joyce and Cecilia Scahill, lived in Shawnee, Perry Co. Ohio and Coalton, WV. The Joyce family later moved to Pittsburgh. One of the Scahill sons moved to the Monterey area in Calif.
Anyone connected to these families, please contact me to help fill in the blanks. My family tree is available on this site for viewing. Surnames I've listed are additional families that have married into the Tierney - OMalley family. I have a family history book that notes them to be cousins but not all connections are clear.
