My mother, Angela Tierney Moertl, is also looking for info re: Tierneys who settled in the Cinti area. She traces a James Tierney (b. 1853 in Wash DC) who was posted in the Newport Barracks in 1878(9)and married Mary Kearney in Newport. They had children named Vincent, Hattie and Mary. James' father was Thomas, but he died in 1878. James had brothers John, Michael, & Thomas. Probably not as direct a link as you'd like, but would be interested in what you might turn about about OUR side of the family, too!Thanks.
