Karen. I still don't have anything more on Nicholas Tierney than his name. My sister is going to the Ft. Wayne library this weekend. I hope she can find something in the 1880, 1900, 1910 census's. I still haven't received any pension papers from N.A.R.A. but they are very slow. Its been 2 months since I wrote them. I'll let you know if I find out anymore that might connect the 2 families.
