    Link to Google MapsCensus - William (41) is shown living at 223 16th Street, NYC with his 2nd wife, Mary (37) and a brother-in-law, Thomas Barry (63). William's occupation was a marine mechanic while his brother-in-law was a ship captain. It is possible that William's wives Mary and Francis were sisters. His first marriage lasted until perhaps 1936 when Frances died. However, William was shown married to Mary Barry (May 1929) on the 1930 census enumeration. Mary is not thought to be related to Frances Regina Berry since a brother-in-law Thomas Berry was also shown in the William Carr household. There was no such a brother in the Frances Berry family. - 1930 - 223 16th Street, Manhattan, New York, USA Link to Google Earth
