Roz Voullaire

James Bernard Barrett born c.1857 Ballinasloe, Galway, was the son of John and Margaret Barrett (nee Molloy). James immigrated to Franklinford, Victoria, Australia possibly in the late 1870's and married his cousin Elizabeth Margaret Molloy in 1880. At this point in time I don't know anything further regarding James' parents nor if he had any siblings.
