Barry family from Ballyclough Cork

Trying to find some information about Barry ancestors who were from this area.  My DNA connection occurred about 100 years ago in Philadelphia where part of the Barry family emigrated.  Appreciate any information you can share. Thank you.  Robin (in Arizona)

    Hi! I am trying to find ancestry information for my grandmother Margaret Helen Barry who was raised in an orphanage in Maryland USA. She was born in 1900. I was able to locate a marriage certificate where she listed Edmund Barry and Mary White as her parents. I have not been able to find out any information about them however   . Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    Can I suggest that you create a new message on our message board rather than adding your family interests to Robin's message. Thanks!

    Hello again!

    Can you provide names and dates of your Irish ancestors who left Cork for Philadelphia? This will allow our volunteers to try to assist you.

  • Sorry about that Robin. I am knew here and didn't realize this was a private message request. I assumed I was on a general message board.

    Hello Roger, at this time we are trying to find a Catherine (Kate) Barry who was born in 1856 and then married in Philadelphia to a Martin Connelly in 1875.  I am part of the Barry Project however really trying to be a contributor in finding my ancestor.  Need parents' names as well as siblings.  Ballyclough might be a connection.

    Thank you for any direction you can offer.

    Katie, any chance you could please email a copy of the marriage certificate to me so I can review?  I found an Edmund Barry who emigrated to the US in 1873/4 at the age of 14.  Trying to determine if there is a connection.

    My email is rkaucla@gmail.com.  Thanks.

    I was away for a week on vacation. There are two sites which have Co. Cork baptismal records. (Civil registration of births stsarted in 1864). I have located seven Catherine Barry baptismal records in 1856. None of the seven were in Ballyclogh RC parish or a parish adjacent to Ballyclogh.

  • Thanks for the update...we MAY have found the family and they were actually from Killarney...9 siblings emigrated together.  Still working on determining if it's the right Catherine.  She is elusive! Have found her baptismal records as well as all of the siblings.
