Re: Tierneys in California

Hi, I hope you're still around since your message is a couple years old. I am helping someone search their Tierneys in California. The family is William and Mary (Murphy) Tierney. Both were born in Ontario, Canada but by the birth of their children, they apparently moved to NY sometime after 1851 and before 1866 when they moved to Humboldt County, CA. I know that William had brothers James and Edward who lived in CA. Their father was James Tierney. Could your John Tierney be the son of another brother who lived in NY. I'm wondering why William first moved there before joining his brothers in CA. Let me know if you think there is a connection. We seem to have similar names and locations.
