EARLY 1850'S- THE INFORMATION I HAVE SAID THEY HAD A DAUGHTER HONORA AROUND 1850 BUT I DONT KNOW IF IN IRELAND OR THE USA. THEN THEY HAD A SON MICHAEL BORN IN 1852 AND MY NOTES SAY THEY WHERE IN THE USA BY THEN. THEY SETTLED IN LEE MA. WITH THE GROUP THEY TRAVELED FROM IRELAND WITH. THEN LATER TRAVELED TO THE UPPER PENNENSULA OF MICHIGAN TO GET JOBS IN THE IRON MINES, AND THATS WHERE THEY STAYED. MICHAEL WAS MY GRANDMOTHERS GRANDFATHER BY GRANDMA IS 86 NOW SO THIS IS ALL INFO SHE REMEMEBERS. IF I HAVE MY HISTORY RIGHT JOHN TIERNEY WAS THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF MARQUETTE MICHIGAN. DO YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT HIM? I WOULD LOVE TO TRACE HIS SIDE OF MY FAMILY BACK TO IRELAND!
