I am searching for information on a TIERNEY couple that were married in Chicago (perhaps in the Near North Side area) in the 1880s. I recently discovered that my gg-grandfather's sister, Mary A. McMANIGELL, married Andrew TIERNEY on 7 Nov 1886 in Cook County. Mary's sister, Sarah Jane McMANIGELL, married Patrick H. McGRATH on 10 Nov 1885 also in Cook County. I am awaiting copies of these marriage license applications. Mary's and Sarah Jane's mother, Sarah (CURRY) McMANIGELL died on 15 Feb 1898 at 43 Pearson in Chicago, very near The Holy Name Catholic Cathedral. The McMANIGELLs were Irish Catholics who migrated from NY to southern IL and then some to Chicago.

I have no knowledge of Andrew and Mary (McMANIGELL) TIERNEY after their marriage. From the obituary of Mary's sister, Margaret (McMANIGELL) TANNER, I know that Mary was dead by 1923. Some of the McGRATHs went to Lincoln, NE but I haven't found any TIERNEYs there.

If anyone has any further information on these TIERNEYs, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.
