Hi, my name is John Barry. My father always told me that I was related to the Commodore as his great-great-great grand Nephew. I have been able to trace my liniage back to 1845 and the marriage of James Barry and Catherine Mahoney in Wexford, but I am having difficulty going back further. James son Bartholemew, my grandfather emigrated to New York in 1879 and my father, Nicholas Barry was born in 1907. If anybody has any info or if there are any possible relations out there, please let me know.
