My TIERNAN is my third great grandfather, Patrick TIERNAN, and his nephew Martin TIERNAN from Sligo we think. Patrick received letters from his sister, Bridget Tobin, in Killadoon Parish in Sligo. This was from 1851-1874.
I cannot locate any of my TIERNAN lineage. We know whoever Patrick's brother was who is the father of Martin above, died in a tragic accident in which his wife also died, leaving the children, Martin, Ann and Mary orphans.
Patrick married Maria Gray Kelsey Deming in 1851 in Utica, NY. Martin married Maria's daughter Lydia North Deming.
