Re: Family search for Mearas connected with Esther "Hessie" Meara, Jack
Robert Meara, William Meara of Dunmanway,
Magner Clan members,
The recent death of my aunt (Joy)of San Clemente, CA/USA and got me
about family members my grandmother left behind when she came to America
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
live or work in Dunmanway.
They have old family names such as Richard, Robert,( my great uncle and
name), John and William, (my grandmother's uncle "Willie" who did
for the church in South Africa in the early 1900's).
Where am I going with this?? I thought it would be interesting to
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
front of the Ballyhalwick House when she was a young girl.
I understand that my great-grandfather was the butcher in Dunmanway from
? 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
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
respond to this inquiry, but my grandmother is no longer living and I
not asking her more questions when she was with us.
Another American looking for her "roots",

>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.

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.
