Hello all. My name is Brian John Joseph Tierney. I am looking to trace my Tierney lineage. My info is pretty scarce. My grandfather was Edward Joseph Tierney born Ashland, KY in 1912. He married Katherine Frances Sweeney. My great grandfathers name was John Joseph Tierney (hence the double middle name for me). I think he lived in the NY area. Family tradition holds that John Joseph's father was also named Edward Joseph Tierney and he immigrated from Ireland.

FWIW - the Edward Joseph that was born in Ashland in 1912 married Carolyn Breese Johns and they had 3 sons, Dennis, Michael, and Brian (my father). they were all born in New Jersey. the family has scattered now and my father has passed away so i'm having a hard time finding any info. I had a great deal of success tracing the "Breese" side of the family once I was able to get back about 3 generations and I'm hoping for the same with the Tierney side. Thanks, Brian.
