I understand that there were many Kearney's descended from Tipperary stock, I haven't found many though. Here is what I have so far on my ancestors from Tipperary:

John KEARNEY b. abt. 1800-Tipperary (3rd Great Grandfather) mar.Margaret SEXTON b. 1802- Tipperary (possibly born in the RC Parish of Newport, Townland of Ballymackeogh) Children:

Ann b.1832 Tipp. Thomas b. 1835- Tipp. John b. 1837- Tipp. Patrick b. 1839- Tipp.

These Kearney's left Tipperary about 1840-43 and settled in Percy Twp.,Northumberland Co., Ontario, Canada.

I have yet to determine the Parish or Townland that John Kearney was born in. I have much more on these ancestors in Ontario and the US.

I am descended from Thomas Kearney, he finally ended up in Corry, PA. with his family of 10 children. There are a couple of his sons that I haven't been able to track down yet. Possibly some of the other Kearney's on your list would be able to make a connection to my research.

Thank you much!
