About Our Family Research
I have very little in the way of research at this point. My father was Thomas Edward Tierney born January 28, 1942 died August 25, 1996. He was the only son of 3 children of Thomas Tierney (my grandfather), born in England, died in Toronto sometime in 1973.
Thomas Tierney was a professional boxer, boxing out of Detroit during the 1940's- 50's? Thomas had a brother Joe who was reputably a very able boxer, who I have heard said, had the talent to become a world champion, unfortunately, he enjoyed the drink as much as the fighting.
My great grandfather was a very colourful charcter who lived in a small town of Hastings, Ontario.
