Hey Stan, we've corresponded before but this is the first time I've seen mention of the Barras associated with Napoleon & Josephine. My grandma insisted that her husband was definitely related to that particular Barras from France. As the story goes: Vicomte Paul Henri Barras had a wife & 2 or 3 sons. When things got too hot in France, politically speaking, Vicomte headed for N. Ireland with his sons, settled them there with land, then returned to France to live out the rest of his life incognito. These sons, or at least 1 of them, moved to England, had a family, one of which was my grampa. I have here John Edward Barras b.1847 Leeds, York. who married Sarah Howden. (John's father was Paul Henri Francois Nicolas Barras) I do have the rest of the family names , dates & places from John Edward on down to today. I'll be glad to send the info if you think you have a match. Jay
