The town of Barry, Barry Twp., Pike Co.,IL is still there. My husband's grandfather's family lived there. The town is located about 15 miles from the Mississippi east of Hannibal, MO and about 60 miles from Nauvoo,IL( the site of the new Mormon cathedral). I'm not sure about the Mormon connection but the library was very helpful during my visit. Their hours were Fri 2-6 and Sat. 10-4. The phone number was 217-335-2149. It was a charming little town in a very pretty part of the country. Good luck with your search.
