Re: Family search for Mearas connected with Esther "Hessie" Meara, Jack Meara,
Robert Meara, William Meara of Dunmanway,
Co. Cork 

Magner Clan members,

The recent death of my aunt (Joy)of San Clemente, CA/USA and got me thinking
about family members my grandmother left behind when she came to America in the
late 1920's.

I visited Dunmanway in 1982 and stayed with Muriel and Bob Meara (my
grandmother's brother). Muriel and Bob have since passed.
I believe their son, West Meara, lives in England.

When viewing a Dunmanway web site I noticed there are a few Mearas who either
live or work in Dunmanway.
They have old family names such as Richard, Robert,( my great uncle and father's
name), John and William, (my grandmother's uncle "Willie" who did ministry work
for the church in South Africa in the early 1900's).   

Where am I going with this?? I thought it would be interesting to connect with
those of my grandmother's family line. I have many pictures of people of
Dunmanway from the 1920's with no names. I have a picture of my grandmother in
front of the Ballyhalwick House when she was a young girl.

I understand that my great-grandfather was the butcher in Dunmanway from 1910 to
? and the family at one time lived above the shop in the square.
I could be wrong but some information tells me that there is a Robert Meara who
has an egg farm and also works in a place of lodging. (??)

This is a shot in the dark, I suppose, asking some stranger for a favor to
respond to this inquiry, but my grandmother is no longer living and I now regret
not asking her more questions when she was with us. 

Another American looking for her "roots",

>I came upon this site and I found it very informative. It was nice to read all the information that has been researched about the Magner surname. I went through the various family searches and did not find any currently connected to our branch of the tree. My Magner family is very proud of who we are and I know that many of our family would be more than happy to help in your search for additional information. I especially know that many of my uncles would love to search your site. Please feel free to contact me I would love to help in any way I can for anybody to get more information,

>Does anyone have any information on the Magner family from North London. In the 1930's or 1940's some of my father's cousins and other family emmigrated to the USA, so I've have been told. My father's name was Cyril. He had two brother's, Maurice (Bill) and Robert (Bob). His fathers name was Cornelius. I would love to know if I have any distant relatives out there. Paul Magner.

>My name is Patricia Philbin, now living in Cranston, Rhode Island. My mother, Dorothy Philbin, was born in Springfield, Mass; her maiden name was Malone. This week she and I drove out to Stockbridge for lunch at the Red Lion; she mentioned that she used to go out that way as a youngster to visit her cousins, the Magners, in Pittsfield. That would have been in the 1920's-30's.

> >While visiting my Uncle today in Tiverton, Rhode Island, he mentioned the Magners of Pittsfield when he heard a radio advertisement for a Magner brand. >

>My grandfather was James Joseph Malone (my mother's and uncle's father) - the James Magner that they visited in Pittsfield was his cousin. According to my uncle, this James Magner was a detective in the Pittsfield police department, born probably 1900-1905, his wife was named Genevieve; he had a brother Arthur who worked at the post office.

> >I've been pretty unsuccessful in tracing this Malone line so am interested in any information available to relations there. I'm not sure how James Malone and James Magner were realted, whether through my grandfather's mother or father's side.

In doing my family tree I have learnt of the above person who was my mothers
cousin.  My mother was born in Waterford Ireland. In the graveyard there is a
family statue that was sent over from America by the above person.  It states on
it that he was in a Boston Church at the time.  I believe that his Mothers name
was Mary and his Fathers name was Maurice.  Is there any connection to what I
have learnt, and what you know.  I look forward to you reply.  maggie smith.
