I am trying to find any cousins in this TIERNAN family. Patrick came from Kiladoon Parish, Ireland before 1851. He married Maria Gray Kelsey Deming. They had two daughers, Catherine Cecelia Tiernan who married John P. Crawford and Mary Jane Tiernan who married Philip H. Farley.
Patrick's nephew Martin came from Ireland and promptly married Maria Gray's daughter Lydia North Deming. They had Children, Joseph Selah Michael Tiernan, a priest, Mary Ann Tiernan, Martin Deming Tiernan, Francis P. Tiernan, Agnes Chloe Tiernan who married Tom Cooney, Teresa Jane Tiernan who married Ernest Charles Winter, Lydia North Tiernan who married William Spain, and Cecelia Tiernan.
I am also trying to piece together Patrick's family in Ireland. I am very confused. I think his brother, (father of Martin and his sisters Ann Tiernan who married Simon Harris and Mary who married Murphy) married someone named Degan? They both died on the same day leaving Martin, Mary and Ann orphaned.
I think Patrick also had a sister Katherine who married Killty? also a sister Bridget Tiernan who married Michael Tobin??
There is mention of an Uncle Frank Tobin and Partly Tobin. I am confused where they fit in.
Ok, I am really confused with all of these Tiernan's and am not sure I have them in the correct order. Can anyone help?
