Looking for parents of Frank Barry born 1824 in Canada.

+8 votes

Frank Barry Barry-1283 was born in Canada in 1824. He was married to Margarett (Unknown) Barry Unknown-259186

Frank is the Father of Frank BarryMary BarrySelina (Barry) LambertPeter Barry and Eliza Barry . 

The 1880 United States Federal Census Record Census & Voter Lists shows daughter Selina Barry (then 22) with her brother Frank Barry (then 26), and other siblings living with their parents. 

But no where is the parents of Frank Barry (mentioned in the beginning, born in 1824).  That is my roadblock right now.

Maybe this is his death? I can't read the French

Interesting on the Lamberts, it just has Louis Lambert and all the children. Does that mean the wife passed away or something, and she might have been a Barry (maiden name)?


PS: Thank you Betty for continuing to help find Frank's parents, it is very much appreciated.
That's what I think but haven't found a marriage for him yet. I'm thinking that Francis and Margaret either died in Rhode Island or moved back to Canada.

Not sure.
I found Selina Barry daughter of Frank Barry (1824) born 1858 died 1923 was married to a Joseph Lambert.. born 1856.

The Joseph on the 1900 census was born in 1885 if he is15 years old during the census. A son of the Joseph married to Selina???????


1920 US Census... so they were alive in 1900, wonder where they were during 1900 census taking.

Joseph Lambert Head M 65 New York
Selina Lambert Wife F 57 Canada


You are doing a great job Betty adding children to the Barry and now lambert family, lol..... still missing their grandparents, the father of Frank born in 1824. Wish they would pop up somewhere... I am working now on this new find of yours with the Lambs... again thank you for that!!!
Betty were did you find that document in French, do you have a URL to it or website, should have asked you earlier. There is a name on it, a David Barry, I wonder if that is Frank's father.

That is an ancestry.com document. I'll try to find it again. Maybe Frank and Margaret moved back to Canada?

Gimme a sec to find it.

Still haven't found it but found this. No mention of parents.

    I would think that since they immigrated in 1871 that there would be an 1861 census with a few children listed with Frank and Margaret but I haven't found it yet.

    One in Massachusetts

    Francis Barry

     in the Massachusetts, Death Index, 1901-1980

    Record Image View

      Name: Francis Barry
      Death Date: 1910
      Death Place: Boston, Massachusetts, USA
      Volume Number: 10
      Page Number: 353
      Index Volume Number: 52
      Reference Number: F63.M363 v.52
        Search for other records listed with this location, year, volume and page
      The next page after that lists a Margaret but there's no way to know if it's the same one.

      I think this is them in 1861 Canada

      It says they are from Canada East.
      Thanks Betty, guess I need to start checking Barry spelled Barrie !! in the late 1700's

      Thanks too for the Massachusetts death Index for Frank. I had 1907.
      Best answer for all the research done, not only in the answer but in the comment section of the question. Thanks Betty!!!
