Adams and Tierney in San Franciso, 1900 Census

I saw this request at the San Francisco County message board at Ancestry.com:

"I just recently found a census record that appears to be for my family in SF in 1900. In 1900 there was the father John, the mother Mary, 3 sons and 2 daughters. In 1910 however the family has relocated to McKinley Street in Oakland and John and a daughter are missing. Did John and that daughter parish in the quake and fire of 1906?...I would like to know what happened in SF but its not easy to get information as I'm on the east coast. But I'm open to suggest as to where next to look."

My records for San Francisco are few and far between, but I have quite a bit for Alameda County. I'll continue to look there for any information for you, but in the meantime, I hope this obituary helps fill in some holes for you. From the Oakland Tribune, dated 10 July 1924:
