I am looking at your message about Patrick Ryan and Julia Tierney.Yes, we are connected to your family.Julia Tierney was a daughter of Paul Tierney (b. 1794 in Ireland) and Julia New (b about 1810 in Ireland). Julia was the sister of my husband's second great grandfather James Tierney. I have your ancestors Julia Ryan and Lawrence Keese on our family tree. I came across their records while I was researching the family in NY.
