I'm afraid there's no connection. My husband's family was mainly in Chicago, Illinois. James Peter Tierney was my husband's grandfather, and his father's name was Peter Joseph Tierney, born 23 January 1880 in Chicago. I don't know the names of his parents, although I do know that both of them were born in Illinois, too. Since his parents were also born in Illinois and I can't track their names right now, I have no idea how far back this line goes before it leads me back to Ireland.

I've looked high and low for Peter's name and birthdate on census years 1900 and back, but he and his family seem to have never been counted even though they're all natives of Illinois.

I wish you much luck in your own continued search.
