I'm trying to trace some of my mother's family, and as so many of us do, I have run into a brick wall.
Catherine V. Tierney would have been my great-grandmother.
According to census info I have gathered, she was born in 1881 in New York. Her parents are both listed as being born in Ireland.
I know she married George Alson Buell (my great grandfather) in 1904 (information gathered in two separate genealogy texts listing George's ancestors on both sides of his mother's family.) And I can find the family in the census's from 1910 forward. She and George had at least 10 children between 1906 and 1925. Their names are:
Tillie L Buell 1906 – ?
Catherine Adele Buell 1907 – 1968 (my grandmother)
George W Buell 1908 – 1986
Harold Buell 1911 – ?
Dorothy Buell 1913 – ?
Winifred Mildred Buell 1914 – ?
Amandley Buell 1918 – ?
Mildred Buell 1920 – ?
Joseph H Buell 1922 – 1981
Gertrude Buell 1925 – ?
If I remember my family history correctly, she died in the 1950's (but I could be mistaken. I was given that information many many years ago and don't have anyone to confirm that with now.)
What I am looking for is to go back ward and find her parents and any sibling information. If anyone has any linkage to this family, I would greatly appreciate it.
