My Grandfather, Michael Tierney, was born in 1862 in NYC. His parents, Michael Tierney and Bridget ne Gallaher (sp?) were married in 1961. I don't think there were any other children of the marriage.

Michael Tierney (b. 1862) married Mary Alice Dunn I think in 1892. He was a NYC policeman and a bodyguard/drive for Theodore Roosevelt when TR was Police Commissioner of NYC.
Michael and Mary Alice has ten children as follows:

1893 - Francis Tierney MD Fordham U and Capt. USN
1895 - Mary Alice died in 1918 of influenza
1896 - Theodore Tierney lived in Cincinnati and then moved to Miami
1898 - Michael W. Tierney (my father) died in Bronxville, NY in Jan. 1959
1901 - Sarah Ann Tierney died in 1918 of influenza
1903 - Lillian Tierney died 1936 (never married)
1905 Joseph Tierney (never married)
1907 - Gertrude Tierney (never married)
1910 - Catherine Tierney married Arnold Erker two daughters
1913 - Veronica Tierney (Bonnie) married Leopold Posival two sons and two daughters. Lived in Cincinnati.

I don't think anyone knows where my great-grandfather Michael Tierney came from or when he died. The last record of him was letters posted from Saratoga NY. Don't know if he ever came back to NYC or if his wife and son, Michael, ever joined him there.
