Barry, John (2)
Barry, John a Roman Catholic prelate, was made administrator of the diocese of Savannah, and on August 2, 1857, consecrated bishop. Florida was at this time made a vicariate, and the diocese of Savannah embraced only Georgia. He labored earnestly and zealously in his capacity of bishop, as he had in that of a priest, but his health was broken down. Going to Europe to recruit, he was prostrated in Paris, and died there, November 19, 1859, aged fifty. See De Courcy and Shea, Hist. of the Catholic Church in the U.S. page 533.
