We are probably cousins or something. I would love to talk to you especially if you have done any family research.
My father, Bernard Tierney, immigrated in the late 50's but he was from Ayr (grew up on Dalmilling). His father Matthew married Catherine Cairns and they had seven boys and one girl. He was a riveter b 1898 and lived on Elba St when he was young. Catherine was b 1900 and I have 36 Elba St and 27 Main St as addresses for her.
Matthew's father was a carpet weaver (Auld Jimmie) who alternately spelled his name Tierney/Tairney/Tarney and lived at 43 Elba St. He married Catherine Robertson, who also used the name Munro. *They* lived on Avon St.
If this sounds familiar at all let me know, or if yu just like the idea of chatting with someone in New Mexico, drop me a line.
Come to think of it I think I do have a cousin named Daniel. Were you named after an uncle and do you have an aunt named Betty Kerr? Did you ever give a cousin a St Christopher's medal?
