I believe your Michael John Tierney was my uncle, one of 7 sons of Timothy and Anne Mulqueeney Tierney, who were married Sept. 5, 1857 in Kilfenora, County Clare. Baptism records at St. Fachtman's church there show Martin, first bornSept. 17, 1858; Michael, baptized Jan. 8, 1861
Others were Peter, 1865; Patrick, 1867 and James (my father) 1869.

Timothy, a weaver, died in 1871. Anne and the three younger boys came to US in 1881. I have no records on the older boys.but when Peter died in 1921, Patrick listed four brothers living in New England, but did not give names or towns.

Mujch of what I know is in a report Paul Hefti prepared foor me. It can be found at

If you have any more info on Michael and his descendants, where they lived in US, etc., I'd appreciate it.

I have been to Kilfenora sevral times, saw the old Tierney home, graveyad, etc. and met some cousins still living in Clare.
