DNA Impact Summery: the only hope for the McTernan
School family to match a
DNA group is to find a descendent of Patrick H. McTernan, 1863--, or to
link by a paper trail connection to one of the DNA
testers at http://mctiernan.com/dnatest.htm Waiting to find
the townland in Co Leitrim, Ireland
where the McTernan School family originated.
Note: In the MA 1855 census there is a Michael McTernan, born
in Ireland in 1828 that is living with the above Patrick McTernan,
1829--1883. There is a possibility that this Michael is the
son of James McTernan of the Norwood, MA McTernan family as both this
family and the Norwood McTernan family lived in Foxbourgh, MA for a
time. The Norwood family is at http://mctiernan.com/McTNorwood.htm
