My great, great grandfather's name was Mark Tierney. He was born in Sligo, PA (date unknown)and studied to be a priest.

Elissa (pronounce: E-li-za)A. Roberts was 18 years old when she came to America from Dublin, Ireland on a big ship in the early 1800's.

I do not know how Mark and Elissa met, but they were married and had five children.

They settled in Duquesne, PA (on the top of Center Street)

I have come to a road block. :-( If anyone knows anything respond to this post.
