About James Barry


In letters written early in 1877 by Miss Sarah Smith Stafford, an aged lady of Trenton N. J., to Capt. John S. Barnes, whose wife is the grandniece of Commodore John Barry, it is stated that Catharine Barry, the mother of the Commodore was married three times. First to John Barry, a clerk in a malt house in Wexford. The issue of this marriage was three sons, John, Peter, and Thomas, and one daughter Catharine. John is the subject of this memoir. Thomas came to America after the Revolution, settled in Wilmington, married a Swede and died without issue. Of Peter nothing is known. Catharine married in Ireland a Mr. Meyler and had three sons, John, Robert and James.
