I'm originally from Washington, and I am 18 years old. My family history has always been something that has interested me, as although I have the name of every living (and some dead) close relatives, I don't know of any of my ancestors that came over from Ireland, or even when they came over. The oldest Tierney I knew was my great grandmother, Loretta Tierney. She lived and died in Butte, Montana. I don't know her middle initial. She died at the age of 93/94. That was almost 8 years ago. My great grandfather, Pudgy, as he was more commonly known, died shortly before her. I don't even know his actual name. I believe that he was 95, however. If anyone has any information at all that might link my branch of the Tierneys to any other part, please email me. My email is listed, or should be; if not, reply, and I'll give it to you. Also, if you wish to know closer relatives names, simply ask. I'd be glad to share, if it will help me learn anything in the slightest.
