Surnames: Tierney
I am descended from San Francisco Tierneys.
The traditional names of Patrick, John, Peter, Margaret, etc. This was around the early 1800s.
My father was William James Tierney, his sister Julia and brother Peter (early 1900s).
Any SF Tierneys out there?

Hi Colleen,

I'm told that we used to have some relations in the SF area that another of the great uncles used to visit. Don't know if they were related to you or not. We're still trying to track everyone down. Do you have more information?

Our Tierney's originated on the Island of Inishbofin, Ireland between Co. Galway and Co. Mayo.

My great-grandmother was Mary Tierney, married to John Adams, and they lived in Berkley from 1890 to 1925 by which time both were deceased.

Nicolas;
I have a Mary Tierney in my background and the dates fit. ( I also have a Nicolas Dillon I my background). I can attach a pedigree. I'm not sure this is proper in this medium though. What do you think? Shall I send it to you directly?

Hello Colleen,

Some items to be aware of;

1) The 4 most common names for women of the 1800's in Ireland appear to be Mary, Margaret, Bridget, and Anne. At least that's what's happened in the Tierney clan that I'm aware of. There is no reason at the moment to believe that your Mary and mine are related. Mine was married before reaching California and even had 3 children in Penn. State.

2) I don't recognize the surname "Dillon". A list of the names that I'm most interested in appears at the end of this email.

3) I would be happy to look at your pedigree but you should be aware that it will be shared with my cousin, Tony Tierney. It can be posted on line here as part of a message, I've seen that done frequently, or emailed to me privately. My email address is obtainable by clicking on my "name" in the header published above.

4) You may want to edit the material, posted here or sent to me, so that living people are listed as just that; "living Tierney", "living Russell", etc. This preserves their identity and privacy.

Do you have more information that you could share with out going to so much trouble at the moment? Dates of birth, childrens names, spouse, place of birth, siblings, parents?

Researching:
Adams, Wagner, Knorr, Kroll, Kohlhaupt, Tierney, Benvenuti, Hull, Smith, Richards, Lavelle, Lacey, Concannon, Connolly, Coyne, Cunnane, Devalous, Dowling, Feeley, Gillooly, Wilson, Hannigan, King, McCormack, McDonnell, McHale, McLaren, McMullen, Murray, Naughton, O'Connor, O'Halloran, O'Toole, Pendergast, Schofield, West, Berasi, Cellana, Cozzaglio, Censullo, Cousolati, Crosina, Donati, Dalo, Flanagan, Graziotti, Patucelli, Prandi, Piantoni, Prenguber, Savolid, Santolini, Trenti, and a few others.

Greetings Colleen,

Your Mary was being born about the time mine was leaving Inishboifn, Ire. My Mary Tierney b. 1845,Inishbofin, Ire., d. 1922, Berkley, California. We've lost track of her daugher Margaret (Adams) Hull, Margaret's daughters, and one other granddaughter, Aileen Adams.

Do you know Bryan Reichert per chance? His grandmother's brother was a Patrick Tierney that lived in California. Brian says he has a lot of cousins in California.
