  • Hi Patricia,


    Thank you for your prompt reply.

    My great-grandmother was Mary Barry (nee Devonshire). She married Michael Barry, a widower, in July 1882. She is registered as a servant and lived in Coolbay at the time of her marriage. Her father was Thomas Devonshire a farmer. Thomas was born in 1839 and died in 1919. Her mother's maiden name was Mary O'Brien and she was from Ballymacuidick. She was born in 1861. I don't have any record of her death. 

    Mary, my great grandmother had 3 sisters,  Johanna born in 1863,  sister Bridget born in 1871, and Margaret born in 1872.

    She also had 3 brothers, Patrick born in 1865, William born in 1868, and Thomas born in 1867.
