Magner of Cork, Ireland

Posted by Mary Saunders on Thu, 18 Feb 1999, in response to Magner, posted by Jim Magner on Mon, 07 Dec 1998


My g-g-grandmother was Ellen Magner of Cork, Ireland. She married John Lynch. Their daughter, Margaret Lynch, b. March 1839, married my g-grandfather, James Joyce on May 4 1859. They came to American c. 1864-1866 and settled in Galesburg, Illinois. Is this a connection? I have a copy of Margaret Lynch Joyce's obituary

Hi there,

I don't know very much but this is it: She married Thomas Stewart they had 3 children




They lived at the time of Rova's birth in Dayton, Washington. Thomas Stewart was born in Rockfor, Illinois, and Mabel was born in Missouri so I think maybe Amelia was from Ill or MO doesn’t know for sure. Let me know if this matches anyone’s stuff.

Thanks for your help and time.

Hello Jim,

I am sorry the only dates that I know of are for Rova she was born in 1886 in Dayton, Washington. Rova's sister Mabel was born in Missouri August 1879. Those are the only dates I have found so far.

Thanks so much, Heather

I understand you are doing research on the Magner Clans.

I have been casually researching the history of the clan for the last ten years or so... nothing in depth, but I have collected some nuggets.

First, there is a tavern in Castlemagner, Ireland that will sell you a short but informative brochure written by a local historian. It describes the history of the Magners and they’re (our) castle. Unfortunately, there is little remaining of the castle today, and what is left is in use as a pen for cattle. It is currently owned by a man of the Barry clan -- I'm assuming he's a direct descendant of the Barry who granted the land for Castlemagner to a young Norman officer of the name Mangle in the twelfth century.

Second, most of the Magners (there are few branches of the clan) arrived in the US by way of Waterburry, Connecticut.

Third, a few years back, one Dennis Magner won Ireland’s Bachelor of the Year contest.

Fourth, a man by the name of Magner was sought by the police in Philadelphia -- described by the media as a "loner," and "Probably armed, considered very dangerous."

Fifth, Magner Hall, a dormitory at Catholic University in Washington, DC was named in honor of Monsignor Magner -- my own great uncle.

There are five pieces of information. I have a few more as well.

Please respond so that we can share our research.

Hello again.

After e-mailing you, I happened across your web page. Very impressive.

On March 20, 1999, there will be a family reunion of Magners from my arm of the clan in Chicago, Illinois. We will be honoring Sister Robertine Magner's 100th birthday.

Of note, my father's uncle, Tom Magner (Sister Robertine's brother), long since deceased, used to swear up and down that Castlemagner was ours. No one in the family believed there even was a castle until my research discovered one approximately where he said it was.

How would I find out if we are indeed descendants of the great Robert Magner who once rebuked Oliver Cromwell, saying, "It is easy for dogs to walk on the graves of lions?"

I have search all over for, in Orange County, where "District of Jeffersonville" would be. An Elias Reed sold land on the 9th day of Nov. 1831 to a William Magner, recorded Feb 3, 1832. Just can not find "Jeffersonville"
