Peter,are you in Massachusetts? I live in Randolph, MA. My husband's family still has some Tangney's around Boston: I think Tommy Tangney lives in Brighton and Joseph in Quincy. They are sons of the Cornelius and Mary Igo I wrote about in an earlier message. This Cornelius would be about the same age as your great grandfather Nicholas. Do you know of any Cornelius Tangney's related to Nicholas?
