Source: The 1930 US census states that Mary Barlow Carry came to the US in 1873. A transcription of a marriage record has been found on the FamilyHistory website. It is rather strange looking, for although obviously referring to Mary, it has the appearance of having been written in Latin:

Groom Joannem Carey
Bride Miriam Barlow
Marriage date and place, 5 July, 1875, in Buffalo, New York
Grooms parents Philipii Carey and Ellenae Begley
Brides parents Joannis Barlow and Annae Neules

The above is said to appear on Indexing Project Batch Number M53742-1,
System Origin New York EASy

The name of the church where the marriage was performed or the name of the clergyman is not given.
 
NoteNot much information has been found about the lives of the children of John Barlow and Ann Newels, but we have some assistance in the case of Mary Jane. Her brother William Barlow travelled from Galt on January 6, 1912, to Buffalo. We have a record of his border crossing and he states that he is en route to visit his sister Mary Curry of 18 Morley Street in Buffalo. Mary and John first appear in Buffalo in records thus far found in the 1880 census. They are at 18 Morley Street in the 1900 census. They have not been found in the 1910 census, but Mary, by this time a widow, is at 18 Morley Street in the 1920 and 1930 censuses. The list of her children is taken from the 1900 census. Daughter Mary is with her during all these years, though in later years she is called Molly.

According to the census record, the children of John and Mary were born in New York State, and this is how they are shown in this tree. Most likely, they were all born in Buffalo.

Mary Jane's birth name was registered as Mary Jane Barley.

Earlier census years for Mary, as shown in Buffalo, give the year 1858 as coming to the United States. More accurately, this almost certainly means the year the family came to Canada, for they were in Normanby Township in Grey County in the 1861 census. The 1930 census for Mary in Buffalo shows that she came to the United States in 1873. Considering the computed birth years of her children, this will be accurate, or at least close.
