From the census data it looks like his first wife died between 1900 and 1905, when he appears with the same children but wife is named Delia (not Bridget)  Couldn't find an actual marriage record.

Luana - I became obsessed with all the Tierneys in Newark while researching mine.  I put most of them on Find a Grave and even have death certificates for some who didn't turn out to be related to me.  If you get in touch with me we can figure out which ones are yours and I can send you what I have and/or help you make sense of who is related to who.

Hi pam ,

I'm Amanda Tierney could you please help me with my search for my Tierney /mcleish ,ancestors I dont no were to begin . My dad bioligical  parents were kathleen or Catherine mcleish nee Tierney,  his dad I think was daniel mcleish . They lived in ireland not sure were, apparently they were killed in car crash, so my dad whom was born daniel mcleish was adopted by his mothers parents whom were Tierney's they lived in scotland dunbartonshire.  So my dad name was changed from daniel mcleish to john george Tierney.  I believe he had a brother called tommy Any help would be very much appreciated.

Also so sorry took a while to reply been so busy with my job . Thank you

Amanda tierney

Sorry, Amanda - that offer was to Luana Tierney for help with her Tierney's in Newark, who I'm familiar with.  I don't have the capabilities of starting to search for a Tierney family in Ireland - I don't subscribe to any Irish genealogy sites. Hopefully someone else can help you.  


Hi so sorry I didnt realise the comment was for some one else thank you for replying though .
