Tearney / Tiernan / Tierney
« on: Thursday 17 February 11 19:22 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for my my Nan's family her name was Margaret Tearney born 1925 in Durham.
Her Father was John Tearney (born c1898 - 1961) he was born in Gateshead, he married Margaret Donoghue (born c1896 - 1931) in Scotland in 1923.

Margaret Donoghue came from a Irish travelling family so I don't have any information on her. John's Father was also called John but his surname is Tiernan:

John Tiernan born 02/04/1873 Ballyfammon Ireland Married to Jane Thompson born c1875

John Tiernan had a number of brothers and sisters including; Catherine, Bedelia, Rose & James. John's Farther was also called John Tiernan from Roscommon born c1853 I believe he was a farmer.

I would love to know more can anyone help??
