I am only now learning about this family, but Peter's daughter, Sarah, married my great-great-great grandfather, Adam Carr in Paterson.
I recently found records at the Passaic Historical Society to document this previouslly unconfirmed tie.
John's father was a Valentine Tiers, who according to the family notes at the society.Valentine was from the Alsac region of France, born in 1743, immigrated in 1755.
I am emailing you now, but I wanted to post some info in case anyone has an interest in this uncommon surname.
