John Steward Barry, II
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 23, 1827
Franklin County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: May 28, 1897
Delaware County
Iowa, USA

John was the son of Michigan Governor John Steward Barry and Martha Alton Streeter. This was before the governor was in office.

John S. Barry was born at Rowe, Massachusetts, December 23, 1827, and was a well educated man of literary inclinations, who served as superintendent of schools at Saratoga Springs [NY] until his hearing became impaired. He was a graduate of Williams College of Williamstown, Massachusetts. In 1856 he brought his family to Delhi, Delaware county, Iowa, and the following year took up his abode on a tract of three hundred and twenty acres of government land on section 35, Prairie township, devoting the remainder of his life to agricultural pursuits. His demise, which occurred in 1897, was the occasion of deep and widespread regret, for he had gained many friends during the four decades of his residence in Delaware County, Iowa.
Thanks to Phyllis Peterson for this submission.

John established the Sand Creek Cemetery to bury his mother Martha Pease. He was the first postmaster of the Barryville P.O. (named after him) in Delaware County, Iowa. The post office was in his house.

This is totally FALSE information. I am a historian and live in Constantine, MI and a member of the Gov. John S. Barry Historical Society. Barry had only one wife, Mary and they had NO CHILDREN. Whoever perpetuates this myth that this is a son to Gov. Bar...(Read more)
