Tierney/Leahy,Tipperary>Owego, NY 1840s

I'm just starting some Internet research on my mother's father's line.

My grandfather was James J. LEAHY, 1864-1936, Owego, NY. His father was Patrick LEAHY, b.1833, Roscrea, Tipperary, Ireland, d.1896 Owego, NY. His mother was Ann(e) TIERNEY, b 1834, Tipperary, d.1875, Owego.

Patrick came to USA as youth in 1846 and lived with an Uncle in Chicago for several years before moving to Owego, NY.

Patrick's father was Michael LEAHY, b. 1804, Tipperary, m. Johanah, and Ann(e)'s father was Michael TIERNEY, m. Margaret, b 1809 - d. 1881, Tipperary.

Anyone here have connections to this line? I'm love to find out more about the ancestors of these Leahys and Tierneys.
