Hi This is Pam Barry, James sister.We are working together on this.I have some more information. Our grandfather's name was Maurice Patrick Barry (mispelled on the 1930 census as Morris), born 1880 in Ireland.He was a stationary fireman who lived in the Bronx.Our grandmother was Ellen Broderick (mispelled as Broderich on my father's death certificate).She was also born 1880 in Ireland, and died April 4, 1950 in New York city.I have not been able to find when they came to the USA, or whether they met and married before or after. They were in the 1920 census also. I don't know what county or counties they came from but I have some letters that came from Limerick.If I could trace these grandparents to Ireland, I could pick up the thread from there.Thank you!
PS:On the 1920 Censu: Morris (should be Maurice)Barry, head of household Ellen Barry Children:Kathrine, Theresa, Morris (should be Maurice) John, and James (our father) Thank you
