Hi Cindy,

I really hope you are still reading this forum. My name is Mary Tierney and the Patrick J Tierney you refer to was born in my house in Callanagh Kilcogy Co Cavan. He is my grand-uncle. He had 10 siblings, Bridget, Thomas H, Philip, Mary Anne, Jane, Peter M, Elizabeth, Anne, Frank and Daniel. Ten of the family came to New York - the only one to stay in Ireland was my grandfather,Philip. I am currently trying to put their history together. I have individual photos of all eleven of them except Frank. I know Patrick moved back to Ireland in 1958 with his daughter Josephine. They stayed with my father's sister Maggie-Ann Lynch (nee Tierney.) This was supposed to be a permanent move but they came back to New York after three months. I would love to know what happened to Josephine after that.
I am curious as to why I can't find an obituary for Patrick in 1963, although I did find his wife Elizabeth's in the 1946 Longislander newspaper. Please contact me at if you are still following this forum. I live in the Bronx - came here in 1987.

Sincerely, Mary Tierney
