TIERNEY connection. Delaney and Tierney. Searching for details on my GGM, Catherine DELANEY. Information recently found from shipping log. Arrived Sydney 1856 aboard 'BEE'. Log says aged 19, from Templederry, Ireland, so born about 1836/1837. Log says Father and Mother both dead. Father possibly Andrew DELANEY, mother Catherine CORMACK (sp?). Appears she may have travelled with a sister, Ellen, 22. Log says relatives in Sydney, Anne and Mary TIERNEY. Would appreciate any help. (Ellen's log entry does not show Templederry and is part erased but could be ?sp? Gowran?. Family history in Ireland for Catherine unknown so far. Subsequently, Tierney's were also Godparents to her children in the 1860s in Mudgee NSW Aust. She was married 1863 to Richard CLARKE
