I believe that the Mary Ann MAGNER C: 23 Sept 1838 Carshalton, Surrey, England, Father James Magner, Mother Ann, is my great-grandmother.  She and two siblings arrived in Western Australia on the "Robert Morrison" from London on 1.2.1862 - the siblings are listed as Ann Magner (I found an Eliza

Mary Ann Magner in your list) and James Magner.  They are listed as servants.  This information was gleaned from the Bicentennial Dictionary of Western Australians (and my g-grandmother's marriage certificate – she married Thomas Syred McKnoe on February 10 1868 - she was illiterate and her father was listed as James Magner, Farmer).

 Is anyone else researching this family?

THANK YOU FOR PROMPT REPLY.

GRANDFATHER DR THOMAS MAGNER, ASKEATON, CO LIMERICK, SPOUSE WAS A CURTIN OF NEWCASTLEWEST, I BELIEVE FROM A HOTEL FAMILY. MY UNCLES WERE NOEL MOSSY AND DR STANLEY DIED 1966 LONDON. HIS SONS FRANK AND FATHER RONAN ARE STILL ALIVE ALSO LIVING IN LONDON.

I BELIEVE MOSSY WHO DIED CIRCA 1930 IS BURIED IN USA. THE GRAVEYARD AT ASKEATON CHURCH IS FULL OF MAGNER PLOTS INCLUDING MY GRANDFATHERS. IT WOULD MAKE A WORTHWHILE TRIP WHILST IN IRELAND FOR MAGNER'S. IN FACT ON THE CORNER OF THE ROAD LEADING TO THE CHURCH IS NON OTHER THAN MAGNER'S BAR. MY CLAN OF MAGNERS SEEMS TO BE TIED TO CURTINS AS ABOVE.

MULCAHYS (THE GREAT IRISH INTERNATIONAL RUGBY STAR OF THE 60'S DR WILLIAM (BILL) LIVING IN SKERRIES NORTH DUBLIN WOULD HAVE BEEN MY FATHERS SECOND COUSIN) AND OTHER FAMILIES. SOME OF THE INFORMATION ON THE HEADSTONES WOULD GREATLY HELP OTHER MAGNERS FIND THEIR ROOTS AND ALSO HELP THEM FIND MINE. I WOULD SO MUCH LIKE TO BE ABLE TO TRACE BACK FURTHER THAN ONE GENERATION. ANYONE WHO!  RECALLS DR THOMAS MAGNER AND HIS SONS PARTICULARLY JACK (SEAN) CAN CONTACT ME ON

 Does anyone link to a Michael Magner arriving from Ireland about 1896 and migrating through Ohio, Wisconsin and settling in my home state of Minnesota?  These Magners were mostly railroad men and settled in Waseca, Mn.  My best to all.

To all:

 I offer the following history of my Magner bloodline.  I am 56 years old. My great grandfather Michael came to America about 1856 at the age of 19 years old with an Uncle Michael Madigan. He was born in Limerick County. It was passed down to me by my father's cousin Celeste Magner, that Michael's father "owned 200 acres of farmland on the south shore of the river Shannon".

 My great-grandfather met his wife (Kathryn McGrath) in Columbus, Ohio while migrating to Beaver Dam, Wisconsin where they married. She died at the young age of 33 after having nine children (no wonder!) My grandfather was the sixth child and named James (1865-1932). Michael worked on the Winona and St. Peter RR and then settled to farm near Waseca, MN. where he died in 1915 at the age of 78.  The obituary says that my grandfather "was a worthy pioneer citizen and a man of irreproachable character and his friends were legion".

My father Thomas had an identical twin brother James, a never-ending source of confusion for a young lad whose father and uncle were always up to some prank.  Both my father and brother settled in St. Paul where they lived their adult life. My father dies in 1983.

I hope some of this helps other Magners trying to put a piece of the puzzle together.  I have more details should somebody inquire.

       Sincerely, Gary Michael Magner

Of Magner Interest:

Fenian Rising in Ardagh 1867

Just three years after Ardagh had witnessed the funeral of it’s patriot William Smith O Brien the local Fenian Movement attacked the police station in Ardagh. It was March 5th 1867. The attackers gained entry to the ground floor by battering the door with a sledgehammer and cartwheel. The four policemen withdrew upstairs.

Stephen Ambrose from Dunganville with hatchet in hand mounted the stairs but was shot by one of the police. He fell wounded into the kitchen bleeding profusely from an arm wound. After a few minutes the attackers withdrew and eventually disbanded and went into hiding.

Stephen Ambrose’s brother Bob, who took part in the rising, was later ordained priest for the Diocese. He returned to Ardagh as curate in the 1880’s and played an active part in the Plan of Campaign on the side of the Glensharrold tenants. He is also regarded as one of the leading lights in the founding of Ardagh Co-Operative Dairy Society (1891)

With the help of Edward O Brien (son of William, the Young Ireland Leader) over twenty local Fenians were rounded up and arrested. However after a three month spell in Limerick gaol the Ardagh boys were released on bail.

They were never subsequently brought to trial. Edward in credited with securing clemency for them.

--A HISTORY OF RATHKEALE http://homepage.tinet.ie/~batcollins/pages/rathkeal.htm

 

“O'Dowd says that "The original building must have been destroyed for the present structure is not later than the 16th Century". It was reported many years ago that the bell of the Abbey had been discovered and given to the local bell-man but no more is known of its whereabouts. (Possibly given to Jim Murray, the last bell-man in Rathkeale). The following article appeared some years ago in a local paper:-"An Appeal: There is a very fine window in Rathkeale Abbey. I would appeal to our local learned and energetic member of the County Council,Mr D.J. Madden, and our new member Mr. Richard Magner to save it and the remains of the building from the further ravages of time and weather"

Just returned from the 50th Reunion of the 95th & what a reunion it was! It was our first & we knew absolutely nobody. That is, until Lloyd Crabbe, Ed Swan & several other members of Co. E/379 took LeeAnn & myself under their collective wing. It seems I had shared less-than-desirable accommodations with them for 4 days on a hill outside Metz, out of food & surrounded by Germans, except for 2 who were our prisoners. I was a scared radio operator who had become 18 years old (going on 50) just a few days before. Lloyd remembered. Thanks to you all & your wives who made us feel so welcome! Thanks, also, to Bob Baden & his lovely wife, Marie, to Bob & Delores Rubly, to John & Georgiana (from Indiana) Myers, & to all the IRON MEN OF METZ who stepped forward to welcome us & to say they were glad we were there! It has been a long time since Camp Swift & Camp Shelby (with a whole lot in between). Being at the Reunion was a great release for me. LeeAnn & I look forward to seeing you all at the Drawbridge next year (Nick, it was fun watching you & your wife, your kids & grandkids having such a good time at the dance. You did a good job raising them & are, as LeeAnn did say, "a good family man." (Editor - Thank you!)
