Seeking descendants of Stephen Tierney & Mary Ann Brennan.

The couple are believed to have married in 1867 in Guardian Angels Catholic Church in Hastings, Dakota Co., MN. (unconfirmed). Two children were baptized -- one in 1868 and one in 1870. Then the family moved to Green Lake township, Kandiyohi Co, MN. Children include: Timothy, Mary, Thomas A., Patrick, Margaret, Winifred Agnes, Katherine Isabelle, Anne, and Adeline (all chldren born between 1868 and 1889). I am descended thru Winifred. I know Katherine married Andrew Thomas Tait. Other surnames marrying into this family: Frederick, Barker, Knapp, Friesleben, Campbell. Winifred married John Franklin McGuire.

Stephen had a sister, Catherine, who married Daniel Downs.

Do not know of other sibling(s) of Stephen or of parents. Census records consistently indicate birth of both Stephen and Mary Ann in Ireland.
