I will be happy to exchange information. Kaye



Mary Bridget TIERNEY was my 2nd Great Grandmother. She was born in County Clair in Ireland. She was living in Warrenheip when she married Patrick GUTHRIE in 1966.
Mary's father was Michael TIERNEY and her mother, Bridget RYAN. Mary had 7 children as above.
She died in August 1875 and is buried in the Ballarat New Cemetery. later in 1879, her daughter Margaret was laid to rest with her. Mary's eldest daughter, Bridget GUTHRIE, married Robert James McMILLAN, from Clark's Hill in Bungaree, 1885.
Before 1911 their family had moved to the Koo Wee Rup, Swamp. They farmed at Cora-Lyn near Bunyip, where Robert grew potatoes.
Descendants of Robert and Bridget still farm in the area today.

NOTE: In the Ballarat Old cemetery there is a Michael TIERNEY, 78 years who was buried 19.2.1899, formally a Bungaree Farmer, his father was Timothy and mother Honora DONHO (?) I think it's reasonable to assume he was Bridget nee RYAN'S husband. A work in progress!


I have spent some time, working on the relationships, between the Tierney and Guthrie Families in the Ballarat Cemeteries.

There were two sets of Martin and Mary Tierney, in Ballarat, at the same time.

While this Martin is buried in a different cemetery to Mary, he is exact age for Martin Tierney and Mary nee Deway/Dwyer.
Mary was living in Lal Lal St Ballarat, as was my 1st cousin twice removed, John Mathew Guthrie!
