Hope to hear from one or both of you re Michael Tierney, son of Patrick & Bridget Tierney. Just want to confirm that this family did arrive on the ship Hive (I hope). I am writing a book about those on board. However there was also a convict named Patrick Tierney who sailed in her. Have heard from his descendant and his story is quite different from Private P Tierney of 28th Regt. so there's no confusion about the outcome for both men.
However, can you confirm for me that the soldier Patrick Tierney was definitely on board - I have not found anything to prove he was not but I want to be sure. Have you found some memorial or a BDM certificate, perhaps for Michael, that says he was on board?
