The TIGHE Family Association currently consists of the known descendants of John TIGHE - Born in Ireland about 1809, probably in County Sligo. He married Mary Anne ROWAN in Douro, Ontario, Canada in February 1833. They moved with their family to Iowa about 1870, and then on to Manley, Nebraska shortly thereafter.

There were several other Tighe's in the Douro area in the 1830-1870's, and we believe some of them were related to John. John's Father is believed to have died in Ireland before the families came to Canada. His mother has been identified as living with her son Watts Tighe in Illinois in the 1860 Census. John sold an interest in a lot in Douro Township to his brother, Watts, in 1839. This was wittnessed by Kim and Charles Tighe. They are believed to be two more of the brothers.
