Research Notes

  • City of Ann Arbor, Michigan is named after her.
  • "Thomas [Barry] died in January 1800. On his death bed, I think from TB he had been suffering from earlier, he requested that his daughter's name be changed from Agnes to Ann Isabella in memory of his wife, and so Ann was left at age three still in the care of this neighbor lady."2
