My Grandmother was Dorothea Magner.  All I know is that she had a brother Thomas.  They were probably born on the Toronto Area. Date around 1900.  If anyone has a connection, I'd be grateful. Thank You Carol Dubien

 I am looking for the Magner families of South Dakota and Minnesota.  Their names were James, John, and Michael.  One of them had a son named Sylvester who married a Bridget Healy or (Haley). They had 2 boys Michael and Edward and my mother Mary (Marie) Magner.  Marie was born in Wakonda S.D. Jan. 20,1896 they went to Minnesota and Bridget died around Shakopee Minn.  around 1901.  Other family names are Ryan, Slattery, and Mulvehill. There also were 2 Magners who homesteaded in Blaine County Montana and 2 Magners John, and Jim who are reported to be buried in Rawlins Wyoming. Does anyone have any information on these people?  Thank you. My name is Charles V. Quinn and my email address is

My name is Dani Magner and I'm from ISRAEL. I thought that we are the only MAGNER in the world. I will be very happy if you will send me email to: bye


All my family was very interested by the information that you sent me. Especially my father, grandfather and I. I am just 12 years old and my English is not very good. We came to Israel from Ukraine in 1990. Our first Magner ancestor that we can remember was from The Ukraine (18th century). In the town where he lived, there was a big Magner family (more than 70 people) Until World War II. During the German occupation most of the Magner family was killed. Some families succeed to escape.

Yours sincerely, Dani Magner.

My mother Francis C. Magner's Grandfather was born in Cork (city or co.?) in 1846 came to USA and settled in Trumansberg N.Y.  He was a farmer and a laborer.  He married a Manning and had seven children.

Peter, Margaret, Martha, Maud, Mary, Edward, and Robert. My grandfather was Peter, who moved to Chicago and worked for the Rock Island Railroad.  He married Mary Allen and had eight children. Peter died in Chicago in 1948, as did Mary in 1953. They had six girls and two boys.  The boys were named Daniel and Allen.  Daniel had no children, while Allen had three children, a boy and two girls.  His son Jim lives in California at last knowledge.  This Jim had a son with a descendant with a lady who was reported to be one of the last pureblooded Hawaiians.  His son John is in California as well.

Looking for information on Genevieve Magner (b Dec 19,1915) from Lake Geneva, WI. She 1st married a Schmelzer. Do not have first name, birthday, or marriage date for this union. They had 3 children.

Kerry Schmelzer (b unk ) male,

Judy Schmelzer (b unk),

Susan Schmelzer (b unk),

I need birthdays for these children, (any info)

Her second husband was William Mangler (spelling is correct) Genevieve died in 1997. Family lost touch with her. My Genevieve MAGNER first married a Schmelzer, divorced and then married a William Mangler.  I know, when I first saw the name I thought it was a misspelling also, but it is Mangler. Both Genevieve and her second husband William Mangler are dead, but I need to find her 3 children from her first marriage to Schmelzer.

Genevieve’s father was Louis Magner Jr., who was my grandmother's half-brother. Louis Fred Magner was born 1886. Genevieve was born 1915 died 1997. Her second husband died in 1998.  If I had started this search two years earlier, I could have found them. Any help you can give me will be appreciated. Donna Cook

The above emigrated from (possibly Kildorrery Village, Co. Cork) Ireland to Australia in 1854 with his wife Margaret Donovan.


He was one of a number of sons of John Magner & Helen (Suish?).  The other Son’s emigrated to Canada at about the same time, John Dillon MAGNER being the only one who emigrated to Australia.


There was a lady in Canada who was a descendant of one of the brothers who had traced the history.  My brother was in touch with this lady a few years back via the Internet, however they lost touch (& he lost her details) & now he doesn't know how to re-contact her.  She was quite excited to here from my brother at the time, because she knew little of the story of the brother that chose Australia. Can you help me find this lady, or any other info? Thank you
