I had a Grandfather, John Tierney, born in Philadelphia @ 1880-1890. brother's Luke & James, and sister Mame. Married Sarah O'Donnell @ 1912. They had seven children: James (my father) 1918-1988, William, John, Katherine, Marie, Joseph and Rita. Only Katherine (Kitty) survives. Kitty was born in 1925. I have no idea about the history of the Tierney's in Philadelphia, but the thinking is, the Tierney's came to Philadelphia during the Famine @ 1850"s(?). They are also related the White's in Philadelphia, as a Tierney (my Great Grandfather), supposedly married a woman whose maiden name was White, the first name unknown. Hope this helps you in your search.
