Hi Jim, just a quick email. I think I have just found my great grandmother, Bridget Magner on page 30.189 of the Cork Census, 1851. Her sister Mary was probably the girl who went to US and married Thomas Brennan (as did my great grandmother in Australia). Her brothers are David and John, and there is possibly an Edward. I think it the right family as it is the only one that comes up for Kilworth. I thought she was born on 22nd June 1834, but this census in 1851 states her age as 14, which makes her birth year 1837. My date was only family hearsay, anyway. By the way, did you get my whole email (inc. photo), as it only came through as a couple of lines attached to your reply. bye Mary Wignall

I am sending an attachment of an excel file. It is my first attempt at sending an attachment or creating an excel spreadsheet. If you get it look it over and let me know if it seems ok. I think there are about 62 entries and it covers the period from 1841-1900 ONLY for Boston. The only Magners to die in MA from 1841 to 1850 seem to have lived in Boston. That does not hold true after 1850.

I don't know anything about the Magner's except they must
have been neighbors of my grandparents because there are pictures of them in a
photo album I have. I thought
someone in their family would like them and perhaps they have photos of my

THE FOLKLORE OF CON MAGNER
When I lived at Coolanoran,
Ardagh in the 1930s, I had a neighbour who was an historian called Con
Magner. His home was our meeting place for "chat-ins" mainly on local
history. Our group on these occasions was made up of five people, of which I was
the youngest and keenest listener.
One of his tales concerned
the "Toll-Stop" at Reens Pike. All road users, apart from
pedestrians, had to pay. On one of his periodic trips to the local forge with
his brother Jack, Con had one of his many brainwaves and decided to make a
detour through the fields with his horses. The sixpence thus saved was
sufficient to buy two pints and two boxes of matches at the local, and
very tasty pints they were. Those were the good old days.
Another story involved
orchard robbing at Bouchers of Forthenry. On one of their Autumnal trips,
they encountered a strange looking woman, complete with spectacles, sitting at a
table, reading a book with the aid of a lamp. They hurriedly left in a state of
shock and decided to try later when the coast was clear. When they returned
several hours later, the same picture met their gaze. Con was not affected by
the superstitions of the period and was realist enough to know that no woman sat
stationary for several hours. He decided to jump in and surprise the decoy.
Cons story was that she got as fine a beating as ever a woman got. Sacks were
then filled and dumped in a neighbours haggard. However, when they returned
for them most of them were rotten. After that, his advice was "Never steal,
theres no luck in it".
The above-mentioned Bouchers
married into the Hayes family, giving rise to the hyphenated Boucher-Hayes.
Later the place was sold to Jim Fitten, one of our "school" at
Another story was about the
travelling people. A young traveller from Rathkeale received a pony and new car
as a marriage dowry. After the celebrations he decided to "run-in" the
new car and speedy pony on the straight road to Newcastle West. The inevitable
contact with a dyke happened outside Cons house. Con himself was on the spot
with his own brand of first aid and resuscitation hot goats milk!! He
told the bride and groom how lucky they were to escape as the car was a
write-off and the pony was in poor shape. The brides father, who happened to
arrive on the scene, was not impressed by a son-in-law who squandered his dowry
on the first half-day of his married life.
Around late June Con liked
the taste of early potatoes. "Jim", said Con on one occasion,
"did you try the potatoes yet? Take that gallon", he continued,
"and fill it for me". Jim, who concentrated more on the main crop, was
not in a position to comply, so he decided to return the gallon. As he was doing
so, he passed Cons own haggard, which was in full bloom. He went in, filled
the gallon and presented it to Con. The following night Con commented, "My
own are just as good, Jim".
On another occasion, Jim had
a visitor, a single sucker Billy goat, the property of a neighbour. The goat
spotted Cons goats and forthwith became a multiple sucker. Con enquired later
whether anyone had seen strangers around. "My four goats have been
milked" he said, "and I had to call on a neighbour for milk to colour
A further anecdote concerned
the Ordnance Survey men who were known locally as "Sappers". They told
him that the top of Rathkeale Church spire was level with the top of Skehanagh
Bridge. This bridge is on the Rathkeale to Ardagh Road.
Most of the aforementioned events are now over a hundred years old, but their recital was typical of the keen sense of humour that permeated our small company at all times. In addition, between bouts of heavy history, songs from Jim Fitten provided further light entertainment. Often, if news was scarce, Con would repeat himself until called to order but, to his credit, I never heard him utter a wrong or unkind word about anyone.

her listed e-mail address)
Patrick Fitzgibbons m Mary Magner, Cork
Figured I'd post on the
Fitzgibbons page, as there are records that include the "s". Looking
for info on a Patrick Fitzgibbon, born about 1830 in either Northern Cork area
or southern Limerick area, or maybe even eastern Co. Kerry. Married Mary Magner
before 1854 and possibly had children in the Newtown Shandrum area. He died in
1869 in Kilmagoura Townland, Cork, Ireland, and his wife left for Canada with a
number of her children in 1874. Children were possibly named Honora, William,
John, Johanna, Mary Anne, Margaret, John, Patrick, Julia, Michael. Only Honora,
William, Johanna, Mary Anne, Margaret and Michael are believed to have come to
Canada and settled in Ridgetown, Howard Township, Ontario. It is possible that
Patrick Fitzgibbon's parents were John Fitzgibbon and Honora Egan who had
children Patrick and David in the Milford Freemount area of Cork County. If
anyone has any information on the Mary Magner/Patrick
Fitzgibbon union, or other names listed, it would be greatly appreciated.
MAGNER'S ORIGINAL VINTAGE IRISH CIDER
Looking for Royalty, Warner,
Wood, Nash and Magner families that are
associated with Jacob Langley in Bellingham, WA. There are several people from
these families buried in family plots in the Bayview cemetery in Bellingham, WA.
I am not sure how they are connected, but Jacob Langley had nine daughters so
these could be their married names.

I am looking for information about the Magner, Sutherland, Beech or Beach and Hall families of Burke, VA. Peter A Magner was married to Lucy Ann Sutherland and the other two names are cousins.
