Pat & Shirley Tinneny & Boys Go North

In March 2007 Patrick Tinneny of Cassatt, South Carolina and his wife Shirley took their sons John and Gavin to Philadelphia for the first time.  Pat, the son of Rich and Lee Tinneny, was born in the Philippines.  Pat is the great-great grandson of Yankee Pat Tinneny of Goladuff, Co. Fermanagh, Ireland. They also spent several days in the Washington area as house guests of Jim and Wanda Gardner and saw many sites including Ford’s Theatre where President Lincoln was shot, the White House, the new United States Marine Corps Museum and the Vietnam Memorial to name a few.  In Philadelphia they visited the Philadelphia Museum of art and its famous statue of Rocky, City Hall and Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.  While there they stayed with Pat’s Grandmother Helen Tinneny on River Road in Philadelphia.  They had a chance to see many cousins.  Here are some of the photos of the trip courtesy of Pat and Shirley:
