My great grandfather was Azariah Magner (1822-1907). Azariah may have had as many as 15 children. I have info on many of them. Thanks to a group that I found through the net a year ago I can take our Magner line back to the 1600's.

The early years are pretty hazy. I'd like to get the line back to Ireland, but currently, I'm dead locked. The earliest name known is John Magner. The following individuals are on the list. This is the progression: John Magner > Edward Magner > Edward Magner > William Magner > John Magner > Azariah Magner > William Nelson Magner > James Magner. James (d. 1992) was my father. The geographic areas are: Maryland > Pennsylvania > Ohio > Indiana > Iowa? > Nebraska > Missouri. My father moved to MO in 1945. If any of these names fit in somebody's line, I'd love to hear from them. I'll be glad to send a copy of my printout to anyone interested.

Thanks again, Rev Reva J. Fields

Hey cuz,

As it turns out, through further investigation, Edward Francis Magner and James E. Flynn owned Magner & Flynn's Tavern at 138 Washington St., S. Norwalk between 1909 and 1923, when Edward died. He was a first cousin to John Edward Magner and by great grandfather's brother. I also found out that Augustus "Gus" Magner CO-owned the City Hotel and Saloon at 38-40 South Main St. around the same time. Gus and Ed were brothers.

Magner Edward 1879, 2/4/47, born Medina, NY

Magner, William, 52 years, 9/23/27, Medina, NY

Edward is my Grandfather and William must certainly be his brother born July 1874. Edward also had another brother Thomas born May 1883, and a sister Hannah M. Magner born Aug. 1876. Thomas appears to have migrated to Mass?

Their parent’s names are John and Marie both born in Ireland exact location unknown.

John in Dec. 1846, and Marie in May 1847. Marie’s maiden name is unknown to me.

Edward my Grandfather was married to a Howe. I do not know her first name. They had four children, James my father, Thomas, Francis and Anna Mae.

Perhaps this tiny bit of information will allow someone to tie in and lead to further revelations. Thank you,

We're just starting to research my Magner connections. I do know my great-grandmother was Alice Farrell (birthdate, siblings, etc. unknown), married Edmond Magner (date unknown). My grandfather, James Joseph Magner, was born 1866 in County Tipperary, Lyle Aherlow (siblings unknown) and immigrated to US in 1880, where he met and married Mary Quinn O'Brien (from Michaelstown, Cork, Ireland).

There is "talk" that Grandfather James had a brother (name unknown) who immigrated to Australia about 1880, but we've been unable to trace that connection so far. We will continue the search for our "elusive" Magner family.

I am looking for information about JOHN O'CONNELL (born c. 1792; died March 30, 1862; buried at Ovens, COR, IRL). John O'Connell was married August 12, 1820 to CATHERINE MAGNER (born c. 1800; died November 26, 1875 at Carrigrohane, CORK, IRL; also buried at Ovens, CORK, IRL).

John O'Connell and Catherine Magner had 11 children, including TIMOTHY O'CONNELL (born 1833 or 1834 at Ballincollig, CORK, IRL; died December 12, 1912 Palestine, TX, USA).

I don't have any additional information about Catherine Magner (c.1800-1875) about whom I inquired earlier.

Although I have some other Magners from County Cork in my family tree, The only John Magner I have was a Catholic priest who was born in 1852 in Ballincollig, County Cork and died in 1879 in Ahista, County Cork.

For your background information, one of Catherine Magner and John O'Connell's II children, Mary O'Connell, married another Magner, known in my records as Edward Magner Senior. Edward Magner Senior (about 1826-1906) apparently lived (and died) at 36 Great Britain Street (now Great William O'Brien Street) in Cork.

Edward Magner Senior and Mary O'Connell had 9 children: Edward Magner Junior (1851-1928); the above-mentioned John Magner (1852-1879); Catherine Magner (1856-1921); Cornelius Magner (1857-1857); Patrick Magner (1861-1925); Mary Magner (1864-1918); Margaret Magner (1865-1912); and William Magner (1866-1866).

I am searching for a Margaret Mangner or Manger from County Clare. Perhaps the name was originally Magner. She married Henry Blake from County Limerick before 1835, perhaps around 1830. I don't know her date of birth but she had 5 children and died in Ireland in 1848 from typhoid. The children were Mary, George, Patrick, James (1835), and Henry (1839). I know nothing about Mangner or Magners. I know a lot about the Blakes. I am descended from James Blake. Please let me know if there is some connection.

Hello Jim

Unfortunately, I have no info on Elizabeth & Courtney Magner. You stated that Elizabeth most likely died in Florida. Thursday, I was at the Vital Statistic's office in Bridgeport and checked the death records-- I know your request to the office came up empty, but I checked anyway.

FYI-Unlike most other Vital Statistic Bureaus throughout the state, Bridgeport is especially restrictive in terms of accessibility to genealogists. The office is only open to genealogical research 2 days a week--Tuesdays 10am- 12noon; 2- 3:30pm and Thursdays 10am -12. Ugh I'm planning to return next Thursday. If you'd like, I could look for info on Courtney Magner......was she married in Bridgeport? Did she die in Bridgeport? You said she "owned a pet store" --perhaps there are land records available at Town Clerk. Do you know the name or street location of the store?

The Bridgeport Public Library, Historical Collections Dept has excellent resources for genealogy Their web site is http://bridgeport.lib.ct.us/bpl

All of my Magner research has been concentrated in Seymour CT. My family history in Bridgeport dates back to 1850's, yet we know of no Magner relations here. However, I have some "miscellaneous" Magner info in my notes: while searching for Seymour, CT Magners in the 1900 US Census schedule, I made note of all 1900 Connecticut Magners (Spelling--"Magner"). The following list is from the 1900 Soundex, Magner code M256: (The address listed is the residence at the time of the census)

1. Hanna, b July 1879 in Ire., age 20, 205 Retreat Ave, Hartford, CT enumerated with William E. Sweeny; Relationship--Hanna is a servant to W. Sweeny

Other facts about James Magner:

1) He married Mary "Minnie" O'Brien of Michelstown, Co Cork in Seymour, CT on May 21, 1896.

2) His parents are James Magner & Mary 'Shelly''/Skielding'

3) He died March 19,1922 in Derby, CT

4) Per his obituary, he left 2 brothers & 1 sister all living in Ireland

The information I have on the Magners goes back to John Wm. Magner born 11/02/1866 in Peoria, Illinois. He died 11/08/1928 in Peoria. He was married to Mary Delilah Lint but I do not have the date or place of marriage. She was born 3/8/1870 in Macomb, Illinois and died 7/16/1929. I do not have the place she died.

I do have some information on their children, but that is not very complete. However, if this helps locate information, their daughter Elizabeth R. Magner was married to my grandfather Robert J. Carson.

Any help you can give me will be appreciated.

Close but not close enough...my Michael Augustus was born approximately 1890 in County Cork and died approximately in the mid to late 1970's in London. He lived in Wales and possibly Australia during his life.

Although, I sometimes wonder if he had a child later in life named Augustus.

If so, the child would be born after 1926 (when he left his first family)...

Well here goes! I'm looking for info on Henry Magner of Medford MA. He was my grandfather who I believe grew up in Charleston MA. I've been told he had 8 brothers. (You have to begin somewhere).

I had an occasion to return home to Lynn, Massachusetts recently. I headed straight to the family plot and found some information. I was told that my grandfather, John P. Magner, came from County Cork, Ireland. His father was Thomas Magner, but I haven't confirmed that. My grandfather, John P. Magner, was born in 1889 and died in Lynn, Massachusetts in 1943. No more specific dates are given.

My grandfather had at least one brother, Joseph, and one sister, Molly. Molly was married, I believe to a man named Springer and moved to the Newark, or maybe the Elizabeth, area of New Jersey. I have no further information about the woman, I only saw her once. She looked exactly like her brother, Joe.

My granduncle, Joseph, was born on November 27, 1896, I believe he was born in County Cork, Ireland. He died in Lynn, Massachusetts on February 16, 1991. His wife was named Catherine. They had, I believe, 5 children that lived, Joseph, Edward, Patricia (Wall), Kay (Katherine

?) (Monahan), and Eleanor (Mackin).

I only have information on one of the 5, the son, Joseph, aka MMOM1 Joseph Magner, USN. He was born on May 16, 1920 and he was killed on board the USS Trout while attacking a Japanese convoy near the Philippines on February 29, 1944. The Trout was sunk in the attack taking all hands. I once did a Yahoo search on the web and found the full roster on that crew. I'm sorry, I don't have the URL handy.

My father, John P. Magner, was born in Lynn, Massachusetts on April 20, 1921. He died on December 4, 1968. He married Muriel Emmons of Lynn, Massachusetts and had 5 sons. I, John P. Magner, am the oldest. I currently reside in Northern Virginia.

Next comes my brother, James Michael (Jimmy), then Leo David, then Richard Patrick, then Timothy William. Leo, aka SSG Leo D. Magner, USA, was killed in a night firing accident in 1978. My brother Tim is a police officer in Lynn, Massachusetts along with his wife, Ann. He was featured on the TV shows, 'COPS,' and 'Tales of the Highway Patrol.'

My mother now has 12 grandchildren and a great grand child on the way. With 5 boys, we managed only 3 sons.

For informational purposes, there was an actor in the 1980s named Jack Magner. He starred in, "Firestarter," and "Amityville 2." I don't know what happened to him, but the latest information I have shows he's around someplace. He's no relation, I just thought you'd find that interesting.

I appreciate all the information you sent. It arrived today and I "dropped everything" and looked through it. My Magner family doesn't seem to be connected to any of the families you have in your material.

My father was Walter Clarence Magner (1888-1954) born in Galesburg, Neosho County, KS; son of John Edward Magner (1862-1920) and Mary Catherine Miller (1862-1937) of Bedford, Lawrence County, IN married in 1882.

John Edward was the son of Lanville M. Magner (b. 1839 in Orleans, IN) who married Anna Mary Taggart (b. 1838 in Ireland) 22 Dec. 1859. (This marriage record was also in the material you sent.) Lanville was the son of Edward Magner (b. @ 1795 in KY d.14 Sept 1865 in Orange Co. IN) and Mary Jane Brown (b. @1796 in SC d. in Orange Co. 11 May 1877).

Anna Mary Taggart's parents were John (b. Ireland @ 1790 d. 12 Sept. 1856) and Elizabeth Hamilton (b.4 Feb 1797 in Antrim Co. Ireland d. 4 Nov. 1879 Orange Co. IN)

They were married in Ballymoney Parish Presbyterian Church, Fourthtown Antrim, Ireland. 7 Dec. 1816. Her father was Samuel Hamilton. Obviously the Magners arrived in America before the Taggarts, but I cannot determine by what route.

Thanks again for the material. Your expense and the value of your work are inestimable.

Hi Martin ,

Jim Magner forwarded your question about Clara Magner of the Mercer area.

My wife's grandmother was Clara Magner from Fredonia in Mercer County. Do you have more information? Dates your father, etc.

Some of the Magners are buried in All Saints cemetery in the Mercer area. All Saints was a Roman Catholic Church that has been torn down and only some of the cemetery remains. I am sure we are talking about the branch of the Magner clan.

Hi Jim,

I have been receiving many of your emails and have enjoyed reading them, so far no connections.

So, just to let you & fellow Magner genealogists that there many Magners in southern Wisconsin, from my records, it looks like most are from County Cork, Ireland. Most of my records were found in the county of Waukesha, Wis. & Washington County, WI.

My husband’s ancestor from County Cork is Jeremiah Magner; I have two dates of birth 1829 and 1833. He married a Catherine Hayes she was born 1833.

They had four children. David, born in Milwaukee Co. Aug 10, 1858. Annie,1887. Thomas in 1862 in Milw. Co. Wis. and then Ellen in 1864.

I haven't been unable to locate the town or parish in County Cork. But, on Jeramiah's tombstone, there was a (possible crossroads in Country Cork) Tarola, Shamora, Country Cork, Ireland. It was very difficult to read the stone, so spelling is a big problem. Does anyone have a clue? I had done most of my research before my children were born, so I haven't done much in the last 18 years. I would appreciate any help, thanks,

Sherry Magner

Again, I enjoy reading about all of the Magners

Thanks for answering. The only thing we know for sure is that his father was a musician in New York. Any of your 42 contacts is from Boston? It was never known what ethnic origin his father was. However, his mother is Puerto Rican and French? Any info you can enlighten us with would greatly be appreciated James has lived most of his 44 years on the island of St. Thomas, being raised as a child by his maternal Grandparents. Thanks again.
