Thanks for the prompt answer. I haven't found the birth or marriage records for Benjamin Still searching. Have located his year and place of death but haven't seen his death certificate yet, that's next. I do know that from all the family I have talked to that he appears to have always used Benjamin, Ben, Benjamin James or BJ, all of his life. I can find no occasion of his use of James or any diminutive version thereof.

   The first occasion of the use of Minneapolis, Hennepin, Minnesota as his place of birth was posted on the World Tree of by two different people. I have E-mailed both and asked for Their source information, but have as yet gotten no answer.

 The date of birth was from his death notice and cemetery records. Two other items have come to light. He at one time was employed as or at the Suttlers store for the Lac du flambeau Indian Reservation at Minaqua, Wisconsin. I am in the process of verifying this now. He also in later years in the early to mid 30's, Head millwright for the Hamilton lumber co. Stanwood , Washington. This has been verified.

 Thanks again for your help. I will keep you advised on anything else that I find.

> Jim, I still haven't found anyone looking for the same Magner/Carroll marriage. Now I am looking for someone who traces back to Denis Magnor/Magner and Ellen Gallagher who were married in the parish of

Glanworth, Cork, on Feb. 10,1839. Witnesses were John and Daniel Gallagher. On March 4, 1848 an Ellen Gallagher married a Denis Magnor in Glanworth. Witnesses were John Gallaher and Daniel Gallaher.

Hi Jim!

I know you and my dad corresponded a lot in the last couple of years in regards to Magner genealogy.

I wanted you to know that he died on August 12, 2000, of pancreatic cancer. He was very fond of you, and was excited about the genealogy research and the information you helped to give him.  Thank you for making his last couple of years enjoyable.

Subj:      Buckley/Magner Connection

From: (Don and Pat Allan)




Acknowledging receipt of the copy of the 1906 letter written by James M. Magner, in NSW, Australia.  What a great insight into the lives of early immigrants in a foreign country that letter provided.  As you commented, no Buckleys were mentioned, but nonetheless I was very pleased to have the opportunity of reading it.  In the third paragraph where "Mother's address" is given, may I suggest that the address should read "10 Thomas Street, Redfern" rather than Redfeen.  Redfern is right next to Surry Hills where my Buckley family was living for a while.  Regrettably Thomas Street is not shown on the small portion of the street map that I have in my possession.


In the interim, I have been able to locate the birth of my Cornelius Buckley on the IGI. Sounds like it is the same person as you mentioned born Sep 8, 1866, at Rahan, son of William Buckley and Johanna Magner.


I had never heard of Rahan before tapping into that web site.  I am now hoping to obtain a photocopy of the said birth certificate. The Catholic parish of Killavullen no doubt covered a number of Townlands.   Do you know anything about Rahan?  Is it a townland?   I am anxious to narrow it down as far as possible. 


Best wishes. Pat Allan
