Gary Barr Hello all Barrs - related or not! My name is Gary Vincent Barr, a descendant of Thomas J. Barr, emigrant from Donegal, Ireland. Most of our branch lives in the Midwestern United States. I'd like you to visit our family tree, at [external link]. Several in my family have attempted to find our ancestry prior to 1800, beyond Thomas J. Barr, but have been unsuccessful. We know that Thomas J. Barr was born in April, 1824. He emigrated from Donegal, Ireland approximately 1850, and joined a brother in Pennsylvania. If anyone can help us get farther in our search, we'd love to be able to find our ancestry in Ireland. Please visit [external link] and PLEASE contact us with any help you may have to offer!
