married Rosa Moore, sister to Andrew's heroine wife, Margaret Catherine Moore "Kate Berry", Find A Grave Memorial# 78000831.

Richard and Andrew shared grandfather Andrew Barry 1695-1766. Richard descended through Andrew Sr.'s son John Barry 1720 – 1751 and
Catherine Porter, Find A Grave Memorial# 21759164, while Andrew descended through son Richard Berry, a signer of the Mecklenburg County Declaration of Independence of May 1775 and DAR Ancestor Number A006844.

Andrew had a brother, Richard, (1765-1850), who married Margaret McDowell and many researchers confuse the two Richards. In the SAR Membership Application 51173 of John McDowell Harry (yes, Harry - not Barry) the applicant relates that Richard Barry (b.1726) joined the military at the advanced age of 53. He participated in the
Battle of Cowan's Ford where General Davidson was killed. Richard Barry and David Wilson took his body to Hopewell Presbyterian Church and buried him by torchlight - See Find A Grave Memorial# 8582004.

Richard and wife Anna Price Barry were buried at Hopewell as well: Find A Grave Memorial# 8581937 and Find A Grave Memorial# 8581340, respectively.
