From "The History of Columbia County, Wisconsin" 1880:

REV. A. CONSTANTINE BARRY, Pastor of the Universalist Church, Lodi, was born in Delaware Co., N. Y., July 15, 1815. His parents removed to Victor, Ontario Co., when he was 2 years of age, where he resided until 1836; his preceptor was the Rev. Jacob Chase, of Geneva; he began his labors in the ministry at Gaines, Orleans Co.; thence to Homer, Cortland Co., where he preached four years; thence to Fort Plain for five years; thence to Racine, Wis., in 1846, which was his home for many years. Although actively engaged in the ministry of the church with which he is identified, yet Dr. Barry has long been engaged in scientific pursuits, and prominently identified with the educational interests of the country; he was State Superintendent of Public Instruction during 1856 and 1857 ; he entered the army as Chaplain of the 4th W. V. I., in which capacity he served about one year; was then engaged in the recruiting service for about two years, and during this time was elected to represent Racine Co. in the Legislature of Wisconsin; he served as Chaplain of the 19th W. V. I., from the spring of 1864 till Feb. 10, 1865, when he was made Chaplain of the United States Hospitals by President Lincoln; was mustered out of the United States service Aug. 15, 1865. In the spring of 1864, Dr. Barry removed his family to Fond du Lac, which was his home for four years; he then went to Elkhorn., Walworth Co., where he established a church; he came to Lodi, in April, 1878. He was married in the fall of 1836, to Adelia Robinson, of East Bloomfield, Ontario Co., N. Y., and she died at Elkhorn, in May, 1877; his present wife was Helen Peterson, of Fond du Lac. He has three children by his first marriage-Malon P., who is in the service of the N. W. R. R. Co., at Chicago; Melville A., resides in Lodi; Bella B., now Mrs. Frank Warner, of Chicago. He has one child by his present marriage- Jennie A. Dr. Barry is well versed in the natural sciences, and enjoys the acquaintance of the most eminent naturalists of the State; has been for many years corresponding member of the Academy of Sciences, of Philadelphia, of the "Boston Natural History Association" and the Buffalo Scientifie "Association. Dr. Barry and wife were victims of the "National Hotel" poisoning on the occasion of the inauguration of President Buchanan, from the effects of which he has never fully recovered. He is still actively engaged in the ministry, where he has long labored to make men better, to prepare them more fully for the present and the higher life.
