    We have been unsuccessful to date, to find verified information for Henry Tiernan, who is said to have been born in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. We do not have any more information beyond that so it would be great to find his family connections. Henry Tiernan (b. 1832, d. January 09, 1877) Born: 1832, County Tyrone, Ireland Passed: Jan 9, 1877, Morris Township, Huron Cty., Ont., Canada Married: Sarah Dobson Date of Marriage: 1858 Henry Tiernan (son of unknown Tiernan) was born 1832 in County Tyrone, Ireland, and died January 09, 1877 in Morris Township, Huron Cty., Ont., Canada. He married Sarah Dobson in 1858, daughter of Robert Dobson and Margaret . Sarah passed away on: August 11, 1903, Hartney, Manitoba, Canada. and was buried August 13, 1903, at the Riverside Cemetery, in Hartney, Manitoba., Canada.


    Tiernan family in Doughill, Curraghroe, Roscommon , Ireland, can be traced back to late 1700`s. Edward Tiernan married an Anne Gill in mid 1800`s
