My Grandfather was Robert Barry,born April 1876,in Skahanagh South,Civil Parish of Kilshanagh,East Cork.This is near Watergrasshill,County Cork.

His known siblings were : #1 Richard,dob 5/17/1869 ; #2 Mary(Minnie),dob 5/20/1881 ; #3 Thomas,dob 8/6/1871 ; I believe ther were probably more siblings.

Just beginning to search for Barry ancestors from County Cork. My Maternal grandmother was first generation American born in Norwalk, CN, approx. 1893. Several siblings died young from diseases, accidents, etc. Supposedly my maternal great-grandfather was named John Barry and was related to the John Barry of Naval History.
Maybe related to your Barry's?

Hello Kathy--- Good luck if you are just beginning search for Barrys.The only Conn. connection I know with my Barrys is with the Sextons.My mother had spoken of a Miss or Mrs Sexton ,a nurse in Conn., being a cousin or some type of relative to the Barrys.There was also a Daniel Sexton who was a Baptism sponsor for my Father or one of his siblings,1908-1917.
I do not know all of Robert Barry's siblings.Since there definitely were Barry relations in Conn.,could you please furnish the names & approx. ages of your Barrys who came from Ireland?
Thanks Rick
