I am researching Owen Tierney born Ireland abt. 1825 married Mary Larkin born abt. 1830 in Ireland. Their children are: John Tierney born abt. 1851 in York County, PA. Michael born abt. 1853 in York County, William Francis born 1853 in York County, Owen Jr. born abt. 1857 in Luzerne County, PA, Patrick born abt. 1860 in Luzerne, Mary Ellen born about 1862 in Luzerne and Martin born about 1865 in Luzerne.It appears that Owen died between 1864 and 1870.He was a coal miner along with several of his sons.They lived in Jenkins Township with a Pittson Post Office.William Francis Tierney was a widower 3 times, Bridget Delaney was the first wife.They had 5 children; William L., Eugene A., Martin Joseph, Walter P., Margaret Agnes.With his second wife, Julia Tobin he had 3 children; Elizabeth V., Francis and James Joseph.With his 3rd wife he had one son named Ralph.I am trying to find a connection back to Ireland so I know where to search there.
