Looking for origins of my maternal great grand father. Michael (Michel) Barry married to Catherine Traynor (did not find marriage in my research yet) however all children born in Montreal.The first child was born around 1870. Michael died & buried Montreal 1923-1924. Was told by an elderly cousin, he wd have come from either Boston or Kilkenny/Ireland. He had apparently also a brother.Evn though the children were raised in French/English, he did not speak a word of French.
Catherine had also several sibblings; amongst a brother called Alec who apparently was living with his family in Troy/N.Y.Alec had a daughter called Francis.They came to Montreal often to visit.
If anyone cd help or as information wd be appreciated.Thanks/Merci
