It occurred to me as I was trying to locate a missing family line of Teners: maybe, just maybe there would be someone from that line, seeking information, and they might locate us.

That being the case - I am trying to locate a descendant of the Robert Tener line, he was born in Ireland in 1867. He immigrated to USA in 1887, or so, naturalized in 1892. His wife, one Janet McMechan was Scottish, arrived in Ellis Island with the children in June 1893.

Thisbranch was a little surprise to the family when Hampden E. Tener Jr. saw an obituary for Robert in the newspaper in 1943.

Any help with this -- contact me.
