I find the family in the 1930 census, living in Brookline, Mass.

Thomas Neary, head, born 1872 Mass.
Mary A Neary, wife, 1885, Ireland
Margert, daughter, 1915 Mass.
Mary A, daughter, 1909 Mass.

Searching for births of the daughters I find:

Mary Agnes Narey, born Boston, Mass. 24 Mar 1909
daughter of Thomas J Narey and Maria Tiernan

Margaret Narey, born Boston, Mass. 05 Feb 1915
daughter of Thomas J Narey and Maria Tiernen

and a son:
Thomas Joseph Narey, born Boston, Mass. 29 Dec 1906
died Boston, Mass. 02 Mar 1909
son of Thomas J Narey and Marie A Tiernan

So it looks like this is the right family....

Marriage Narey X Tiernan:

Thomas J Narey, age 34
birth year 1872
son of James Narey and Anna Burns

Married Boston, Suffolk, Mass. 12 Aug 1906 to:

Marie Tiernan, age 25
birth year 1881
daughter of John Tiernan and Mary

The age of Mary is a bit off, but that is not that unusual.

Looking for a passenger record of a Mary Tiernan around 1902 I find:

Ship Campania, dep. Queenstown, arr. Ellis Island 17 May 1902
Mary Tiernan, age 17, born 1885
Last residence Ballinamore GB (actually Ballinamore is situated in Ireland, abt. 18 kilometers from the border with Northern Ireland)

There are more details on the pass. list.


Kind regards,
