Death of Mrs. Eliza Barry
In the death of Mrs. Eliza Barry this morning Washington loses one of its oldest and most respected matrons. For almost a century she has lived in this city, bringing about her a large circle of friends, who will mourn her loss. Kind, generous and with a disposition that was gentleness itself, she won for friends all who knew her. Mrs. Barry was identified with the oldest and best society of the capitol. She was born here and married at an early age Richard Barry, who for forty years was connected with the Navy yard. Her family consisted of four daughters until recently, when the youngest, Annie, died. The daughters never married, living with their aged mother at the family home, 1400 15th Street Northwest. Although at the advanced age of ninety-one, Mrs. Barry was a remarkable woman. Up to within a short time ago she enjoyed excellent health and took an active interest in her home.

The funeral will take place Thursday morning, and the interment will be at Congressional Cemetery.
