Am searching for the parentage and birthplace of John (J?) Tierney b. 1853 in IRE. Family lore has it as County Mayo but searches there have yielded nothing. He came to USA in 1870, ended up in Clinton, MA where he married Margaret Kittredge (Kittrick) in 1874. They had five chilren: Henry b. 1877; John b. 1878; Alice b. 1879; Anastasia (Annie) b.1883; and Frank b.1886. He had at least one brother Michael there in Clinton at the same time who married Margaret Kittredge's sister. Have some additional info on this line which I will be glad to share.
