Michael Barry was born in 1821. He was the husband of Honora (Unknown) Barry and father of Michael Barry, William R. Barry, Bridget (Barry) Hart and Catharine Barry.
Michael and Honora Barry came to this country in 1845, and located at St. Louis, where they remained a couple of years, then to Alton and to Springfield, coming over the Alton Railroad. They lived on a small farm about six miles north of Springfield.
Michael passed away 1857 in Sangamon County, Illinois. His wife Honora Barry, later married Patrick Smith who was killed shortly after, during the war in 1864.
Continued research is needed to establish whether Michael and Honora Barry are the correct parents for William Robert Barry https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Barry-1390. The location of Illinois vs Connecticut causes concern at this point.
