(Posting 13 years later!....) My sister's research says that your Julia Tierney is our great-grandmother Hellen's sister. Mary and Michel Tierney came to the US from St. Jean, Canada (and may have been some of the Irish who first came to the US, went to Canada, and then came back--don't know)

Here is the information, see if it matches up:
Mary (b. abt 1837 Ireland) and Michel (abt 1830, Ireland) Tierney (on one census spelled Tirnney)
Children & birthdates:
Richard, 1857
Eliza, 1862
Mary, 1868
Julia 1871-1921
Josephine 1871 (? - twins? or "Irish" twins?)
John 1874
Hellen (My great-grandmother) 1876

Please let me know if you get this and if it matches--finding information out about the Tierneys has been very difficult!
