J’ai eu quelques échanges par courriel avec Mme June Barry. Mme Barry a trouvé le livre de Roland Barrière sur mon site et  cherchait à s’en procurer une copie papier. Elle m’a expliqué que son mari descendait d’un Barrière qui avait modifié son nom pour Barry. Elle mène ces recherches pour ses enfants, descendants de Barrière. Elle m’a envoyé quelques photos et accepte de les voir ici publiées.

Voici quelques extraits de nos échanges.

I would like to buy the Rene Barriere book. I was so happy to find it. Although I can’t read French, I want to have it translated. My now deceased husband is Wilfred Ovilo Barry. His father Ovila Romeo Barriere changed his name to Thomas Barry probably in the 30s. His father was Hormidas Barriere who changed his name to Wilfred H Barriere. Hormidas was a son of Moise’s. I can’t tell you how happy I am to find your email. I live in Oak Brook Illinois. I have 3 children and grandchildren. Thanks so much for uploading the Rene Barriere info and the pics. Wow! I have a Facebook account (under the name June Wonecke Barry) and just friended you, but I am computer stupid and have never posted anything on Facebook. My granddaughter set up the account for me and all of her friend’s chats seem to hop onto my account. Don’t really know how Facebook works.

Wilfred Hormidas Barriere

Wilfred Hormidas Barrière

Hi Marc,

Moise Barriere and Celeste Loiselle are my great grandchildren’s 4th greatgrandparents through Horimidas Barriere aka Wilfred H Barriere from Worcester MA. To find a picture of Moise on your download was really exciting. Two more Barrieres aka Barry were born this week to my family.

The wives of two different grandsons had baby boys – William and Carter. We have Hormidas’s picture. It is posted on ancestry.com. I posted it above but not sure if it will go through to you. Wilfred H Barriere was a builder of diners in Worcester MA. His brother, Napolean, worked with/for him. My husband was a home/apartment builder and developer in DuPage County IL. My son Thomas Joseph Barry is a home builder/developer. It was about 25 years ago when we found out our real name was Barriere. At that time, my husband wanted to change our last name back to Barriere and I said no. I had no idea then what a wonderful family I married into. Now that I know more about the Barriere ancestors, I wish we would have changed back to Barriere. Again, I thank you one more time for posting the Rene Barriere info. You are one of my favorite people. Here is a pic of their monument:

I have found 2 sets of 16th great grandparents to my great grandchildren. Since the pictures are going through, here is Aurore’s tombstone in Worchester, MA.

She is a daughter of Wilfred Hormidas Barriere. My sister-in-laws did meet her. This is one of my daughters next to a Barriere tombstone in Worchester MA

Suite à cet article, June a envoyé cette généalogie à toute sa famille:

Of Alqonquian-Siberian origin born in France about 1651?

Based on the sound genealogical and scientific DNA evidence presented here, what can be reasonably deduced about the maternal lineage of Catherine Pillard?

The traditional belief regarding the origins of Catherine Pillard is that she was born in La Rochelle, France, immigrated to Quebec around 1663 as a “King’s daughter”, and later married Pierre Charron. Pierre and Catherine had twelve children from their marriage. Their descendants today include all the authors of this study.

The proven lineages of two of the tested individuals converge into the historical person Catherine Pillard, who lived, married and raised her large family in 1660s Nouvelle-France. Despite the existence of records of Catherine originating from France, the experts testimonies cited in this article prove it would have been impossible for her mother to be of European origin. The mtDNA evidence proves to be a rare form of Siberian haplogroup that match the Algonquian haplogroup or that of other northeastern natives of North America.
