I am seeking information about my great great grandmother, Caroline Frances Barry. Our family records indicate she was born in 1835 in Pictou. Her mother, Abigail, was also from (we think) Pictou though we don't not know her maiden name. There were four children in Caroline's family: Vincent, Sylvia,George and Caroline.

Thanks. No luck yet but I'll keep searching. There must be some clues we will unearth at some point!

I know there was a Caroline Barry, daughter of Anthony and Sarah (Ross) Barry, but this couple was born in the same generation as your Caroline. Anthony Barry came from a large family. His brother Joseph was b. in 1810 and I don't know whom he may have married, but he is a potential father. I descend from Anthony's sister, Mary Ann Barry who married John McIntosh and lived at Balfron, NS. Anthony Barry's father, James Barry (or Barrie) was from Perthshire, Scotland. His wife, Mary (Richards) Barry was a daughter of Joseph Richards who was from Perthshire, Scotland and Catherine McLellan whose father, Anthony McLellan was born in 1720 in Ayrshire, Scotland.

Thanks! We have now found that Caroline's parents were George Barry and Abagail Howe. It appears that Abagail Howe was born in Nova Scotia. George's parents appear to be Patrick Barry (1746-1814) and Deborah Smith (b ABT 1750). Until about 1810, Patrick and Deborah lived in Kitley Leeds, Ontario. Are there any records in your family of a Patrick Barry?

No Patrick Barry to my knowledge. My Barry family came directly from Scotland to Nova Scotia. Your family may be from an Irish Barry family. Most of these Barry families are found in Wexford or Cork and Kerry.

Hi,

I'm curious why you think that Abagail Howe was born in Nova Scotia? The Barry family who you reference lived on the border of Kitley and Yonge Township but on the Kitley side. There was a Howe family who lived in the same area but on the Yonge side. There was another daughter, Rhoda Howe, who married another of the Barry sons. This Howe family had been in the Leeds area since 1793 and were formerly of New York State.

Hi
Thanks for responding. Any information you can add about the Howe family would be so helpful. We have not been sure where Abigail Howe was born - we thought her children were born in Nova Scotia. Do you think she was born in the Yonge Township area? Your information certainly makes sense. We know that her sister also married a Barry. Do you know her parents' names or when the Howe family would have lived in New York state? Thanks so much for any information you can add/ann
