1900 census Potter Avenue Granville, Washington, New York (some of the family wrongly transcribed as Linsey)

Micheal Tierney   48 Imm 1873. Marriage 1876
Mary Tierney   44 Imm 1874.
James Tierney   18
Mary Tierney   16
William Linsey   14
Thomas Linsey   13
Patrick Linsey   10
Martin Linsey   8
Joseph Linsey   7 months

If these dates are correct we would expect to find them on the 1880 census. First child born 4 years ish after marriage.

Sadly Michael's birth before start of civil registration in Ireland, so not to be found on irishgenealogy.com, I looked on rootsireland.ie for the baptism of a Michael 1853 +_ 1 and there are 9.

Might there be any marriage records for NY? They say 33 years married in 1910.

No sadly I couldn't find anything on my end, just the marriage certificates for a few of their children with the parents names on it.

And that's a shame with the pre civil registration. Guess its all but impossible to find anything concrete given how tough those records are to find / identify.

I actually noticed that they said Joseph was a secret service member? I wonder if this had to do with the WPA? Interesting  :o

If you want to buy any records, you could try getting Michael's death certificate.  It may list his parents' names, although the accuracy would depend on what the informant knew.  If possible, it would likely be faster to order it from Granville rather than the state, which is currently backed up 8+ months on genealogical requests.

Might there be any marriage records for NY? They say 33 years married in 1910.

New York state didn't require vital registration until around 1880, so it's a bit hit or miss before that.

Thank you for that tidbit. I've gone ahead and written a letter and will hopefully hear back from them in the coming weeks. Fingers crossed for any relevant details! :)

This isn't much help and perhaps some of it may have already been mentioned but:
Thomas L Tierney, according to his marriage document, WWI Draft Reg Card, and Social Security App and Claims Index was born in Mineville, New York.

In 1900, it was claimed that Mary Tierney was the mother of 10 children, 7 still living.  According to the New York Death Index, two girls/women died in 1893:
Kate, 21 March, Mineville
Maggie, 17 February, Mineville
Unfortunately, no ages were given.  Perhaps Tierney was a common name in that part of New York and these women were not related; or, perhaps they were Mary's daughters?

I don't know how I missed it earlier tonight (when I started looking around) but this looks like the family in 1880:
1880 Mineville, Essex County, New York Census
Michael Tierney, age 28, works in Mines, born Ireland
Mary, age 25, wife, Keeping House, born Ireland
Maggie, age 2, daughter, born Pennsylvania
John, age 4/12, (born March), son, born New York
   (Found on Familysearch website)

Update:  The pay site that I use shows the family as Tiernery in 1880.
Ellison: Co. Wicklow/Canada       Fowley: Sligo/Canada       Furnival: Lancashire/Canada       Ibbotson: Sheffield/Canada       Lee/DeJongh: Lancashire & Cheshire       Mumford: Essex/Canada       Ovens: Ireland/Canada       Sarge: Yorkshire/Canada       Stuart: Sligo/Canada       Sullivan: Co. Clare/Canada      Vaus: Sussex/Surrey      Wakefield: Tuam or Ballinasloe, Ireland       (Surname: Originated/Place Last Lived)  (Canadians lived in Ontario)
