taking place in India, but no record anywhere of his birth, he went on to become an
assistant Surgeon/ Hon Captain in the Indian Army, John Barry died in 1921 in Ealing,
2 John William Barry Maloney born in 1872 in ‘The Fort’ India again no record of his
birth anywhere that I have searched. John William died in Whitechapel, London in 1924
3 James Robert Maloney the son of John Barry Maloney born in 1897 in ? Agra, India and
again I can find no record anywhere of his birth. James Robert died in Fulham, London in
I would be so grateful if anyone could help as I do not know where else to search.
