"Patrick Barry was an Irishman who came to this country when he was young. In 1774 he married Lucretia Westover, and lived with her about a year in Sheffield, Massachusetts, teaching a school. there, however, he was mistrusted by the inhabitants as acting the part of a spy to the British government. He told his wife he was rich and wished her to go to England with him, which she refused to do. He left rather summarily and was not after heard from. About two months after his departure his wife had a child born, which she named John, who grew up and married Hannah, daughter of Mrs. Diantha Rollson. D. C. Barry and Mrs. T. Shepard were the fruits of this marriage." Seven years after the departure of Patrick Barry his wife obtained a divorce and married Dubartins Willard." "A few years ago Mr. Barry's attention was drawn to a notice published in a New York paper that there was a certain sum of money in the hands of the Court of Chancery, in England, for the heirs, if living, in America, describing the past history of his family so accurately that he determined to write to England and see if he would get an answer. He received an answer and wrote to his mother, 'I have received a letter from England by last mail. There is a large estate laying unclaimed in the court of chancery, in England, for the heirs of Patrick Barry, who are in America, and they offer to collect it for 10 per cent. I send you a copy."
