Geraldine Long, I can't thank you enough!! So it seems the Barrett family do not hold a lot of information on Ancestry. I will rethink how best to gain further information. I appreciate your time helping me. Thank you

Was just about to post the following, I think mrs m as the right Terence, if so he was born on the 15th Jan 1904 New York, was on the 1911 Census
in Ireland ( John and Annie stated that by 1911 they had been married 18 years had 7 children and 2 had died) Terence emigrated 1926 married Gertrude Lillian Dumas 1935 in Springfield Mass. was a barber with his own shop and died 16 Aug 1982 Springfield Mass,
Others found Richard died at the Somme on the 2 Sept 1916 commemorated on the Thiepval Memorial France, Regimental No 3237 Royal Munster Fusiliers , Possible birth date 3 Jan 1896?
Margaret was born on the 8 Jan 1901 New York
They had a son John born 7 Jun 1903 New York ( he was probably one of the two that died)
Michael born 16 Oct 1905 Cork
James Joseph born 14 Oct 1909 Cork

Just found the birth record of who I believe was the second child that died she was Annie born 1898 all the children were born on East Street
Forgot to say I got the Irish info from Irishgenealogy.ie website
I see mrs m is originally from my home town of Wigan
Just confirmed the birth of Annie and John they both died in 1903 Annie in April buried 12 April Calvery Cemetery age 4 , and John died 13 Sept ,buried 15 Sept also in Calvery Cemetery Address given as East 46 Street one said 29 and the other said 229 , one may be a misprint?

Thank you Geraldine Long, JAMB really appreciate your kind efforts and expertise. It means alot! You are rather good at this. Right now I'm trying to find a Photograph of Richard Barrett who died on 2nd September 1916 at the Battle of Somme, France. Reg Service Number 3237 Royal Munster Fusiliers. Any ideas? Everything I can find so far is his name only, no photographs.
