I will be visiting Tuam this fall and would like to find any living relatives I might still have there. My great-grandparents were Margaret Reilly (b.1876-d.1958) and Thomas Tierney (b. 1875- d. 1958). They were married in the U.S. and had five children - Catherine, Cecily, Margaret Mary, John Joseph and Thomas Tierney. The last three died as babies.
Thomas Tierney was the son of Michael Tierney born in 1833 and married Cecily O'Brien on Jan. 14, 1858 in the RC Parish of Tuam. Cecily was born on September 6 1835 in the RC Parish of Tuam and was the daughter of Thomas O'Brien and Mary Hession. Michael died May 14, 1877 at Ahgloragh. Cecily immigrated to the U.S. after Michael's death and died November 24, 1912.
