Ireland to Nepean Township, Ontario, Canada

February 23, 2009: (new photographs of John Tierney and Ann Murray added) Hi Al; Thought I'd get these pictures of the John Tierney and Ann Murray family off to you to put on their page. They have come from various descendants of John and Ann's and I don't think they will mind as it would be a shame to lose these pictures of almost the entire family. Thanks, Al ... Sue

May 1, 2008: Hi Al; I'm doing some updating and was wondering if you could start a page on my family of Tierneys. At the same time, if you wouldn't mind, you could remove the 'old' John Tierney and Ann Murray information which is currently on the Charles Christian page. I'm going to do a page on the immigrant (1825) of Denis Tierney and his wives as well. I'd sure like to see a link to his upcoming page on your home page as his family was such an integral part of the Nepean community and St. Pat's church. ... Sue John Tierney, son of Denis Tierney and Margaret Egan, and Ann Murray had 11 children, all born in Nepean.
1) Elizabeth Tierney (1833 - 1919) married Charles Dubreuille in 1854, a son of Hyacinthe Dubreuille and Marguerite Charlebois of Quebec. Charles changed his name to Dubruille in 1866 when they moved to Oregon, USA. They had 10 children, the first 6 in Ottawa. Eight lived to adulthood.

November 7, 2010: Hi Al; As the days get darker, it's time to get back into genealogy and tidy up some loose ends. Can you add this information to my page (above listed) and this should finish it off. I am enclosing a picture of Catherine Mary Tierney (1852 - 1940) who married John Joseph Whelan. I don't know why I didn't send her picture before, so this should pretty well complete the set. Also, she died in 1940 in Ottawa. Finally found out what happened to John and Ann's son, James J. Tierney (abt 1850 - 1932). He married Mary Elizabeth Monahan as stated, but had 3 children: Muriel Annabelle, John V., and William Harvey Tierney. He moved to Oregon, USA, about 1907, finally settling in Bend in Deschutes county in Oregon where he died and is buried. ... Sue
