MAGNER QUERIES MAY 1998

EDITED BY _ HYPERLINK  Send Queries to:  Jim Magner

1998 The Irish Emigrant Ltd.

Editor: Liam Ferrie

Week ending, Saturday, November 15, 1997

Ceremonies in Castlemagner last week commemorated the 350th anniversary of the Battle of Knocknanuss, the largest to take place in the province, and which saw the deaths of between 3,500 and 5,000 soldiers. Present at the ceremony were Lord Inchiquin of Dromoland, Co Clare, and Count MacDonald of the Glens in Scotland, whose ancestors led the opposing armies. A memorial to the battle and those who died there was jointly unveiled by the Rector of Mallow Rev. Tony Whiting and Fr Stephen O'Mahony parish priest of Castlemagner

Hi,

My name is John Magner. This is an alternate email address for me and I almost never check it. My real address is magner@hotmail.com. I presently live in Virginia, but the rest of my family, including my brother, Jim, lives just outside of Boston, where I was born and grew up.

I don't have much information on my family beyond my grandfather and what I have may not be all that reliable. If I am one of the Magner's that you are looking for, I'd be glad to help you out. Just contact me

at my regular address: magner@hotmail.com

Hi Jim: Thank you very much the package of material you sent me had some good information. In the 1900 NY census I found my grandfather Edward born Sept. 1879 residing at home with his siblings Hannah M. born Aug. 1876, Thomas born may 1883, and William born July 1874, along with their parents John and Marie who are mJohn Dec. 1846 and Marie May 1847.y Great-grandparents. I did not know them and was not aware of their names or the fact they were both born in Ireland. Looking back through the material you sent. I found a Jhn. Magner born Jan. 1846 fathers name Jhn. Mother Ellen Danaghy. I wonder if this is a match? Getting back to Edward Magner my grandfather, he married a Howe her first name is lost to me. They had four children James my father, Thomas, Francis and Anna Mae. I believe

 

Francis is still living in Middleport, NY. Thomas had sons One Named Michael whom I believe still lives in western NY. Anna Mae had Janet and William who's` surname is Smith They may reside in Rochester, NY. Hannah my grandfathers sister married a Mcelroy "not sure of spelling" who's' offspring still live in Medina, NY. That's all I have for now, perhaps it will fill in some gaps somewhere. Don Magner

Hi Jim

I am researching a James Magner who arrived in New South Wales, Australia in the 1820s and I'm not sure where you live or which country you are researching Magner's in. I would love to have a copy of your list if you find any connection between the Magner's on the list and mine.

So here goes:

William Magner married Mary Fouly (date and place unknown but probably Ireland) Known issue, all born at Toureen, Co Limerick and christened at Ballybricken, Co Limerick, are:

James chr 14 April 1812

Edmund chr 17 April 1814

Mary chr 28 July 1817

William chr 30 Jan 1819

Tom chr 18 Feb 1821

James married a Sarah Mary Casey in New South Wales in 1839 and died in 1878 in NSW.

He is an ancestor of my husband's.

There are a number of Magner's in NSW but none seem to be related to James.

If you are interested I would be happy to search the available birth, death and marriage indexes for Magner's for the states of New South Wales and Victoria.

Jim,

Your cousin Tom M. of Dayton has charted my family quite professionally and he has basic information about us. But here I'll give you a brief sketch of our sub-clan whom I designate as the Buffalo (NY) Magner's.

The first Magner on our side to come to the States was Edward Magner and his wife Nancy (Cotter) Magner who left County Claire in 1853 in the wake of the Great Famine and made their way, probably through Canada, to Michigan. Family tradition has it that they originally stemmed from County Cork.

Edward and Nancy had three small children (Thomas, Michael and Mary) with them when they reached Michigan. Thomas never married while Mary married a Hoskin and had, I think, ten children.

Michael married Mary Reedy/Riedy and had six children, three of them boys: Edward, William (my father) and Thomas. They lived on a farm in Brockway, MI, which is now part of the town of Yale, MI (near Port Huron). Thomas died as a soldier in France in 1918. Edward and William worked the lake boats and ended up in Buffalo, New York, my birthplace.

Uncle Ed and his wife had seven sons but I've lost track of them. William married my mother, Mary Carney, who immigrated from Ballyhaunis, County Mayo, in 1901. They had six children: three boys, three girls. My older brother John (now deceased) and his wife Molly had two girls, my wife Irma and I have two daughters and one son, Timothy, a petroleum engineer in Perth Australia. Tim and his wife Janet have one boy (Thomas) and one girl (Grace). My younger brother William and his wife Eileen have two sons: Kevin and William

So much for a brief sketch of my family. I should mention that there are other Magner's in western New York who have written to me at various times.

Best wishes, Tom (<Buffalo)

Dear Jim

I have been researching my family tree, of which the Magner's are a part, for about 18 months. I would love a copy of your family list, which can be sent to the address at the bottom of this message. If you are prepared to send it air mail I will be more than happy to reimburse you for the cost.

The furthest back I have been able to get is WILLIAM MAGNER, (birth unknown, died 31 Mar 1881), a farmer, of Bishopstown, County Cork. On his death, letters of administration for his estate (of less than £600) were granted to his son Edward, a doctor. I know nothing else about William - his forebears, his wife's name, how many children he had. However, I believe he had several sons, all doctors.

The aforementioned EDWARD MAGNER (my great-grandfather) was born in either 1856 or 1858. He became a very prominent surgeon and was President of the Cork Medical and Surgical Society. He married Mary Sullivan, daughter of the Irish Nationalist politician and journalist T.D. Sullivan, at Dublin Cathedral on 28 Jan 1885. I believe T.M.Healy, a relative of Mary's and one of the leading politicians of his day (and later first Governor General of the Free State), was best man. They lived at South Mall, Cork, and at Lakelands, Blackrock, Co Cork. Two other doctors listed as practicing at the same time as Edward were THOMAS and JAMES MAGNER. They may have been his brothers.

EDWARD and MARY had nine children: KATE, a nun, who died of the "black flu" in 1918. WILLIAM, a pathologist, who emigrated to Toronto, Canada. MARY, who married a doctor called Buckley. UNA, my grandmother, who married a barrister named James Walsh and later moved to England. EDDIE, who won the Military Cross in WW1 and emigrated to Canada. ITA, who married a surgeon called Hegarty. AIDEEN, who married a Dr. McSwiney. JOHN, a doctor and Air Commodore in the Royal Air Force; and TOM, who died in infancy. The medical tradition clearly ran very strongly in the family. EDWARD died on 13 April 1938. Probate was granted to his sister Ita Hegarty.

The only earlier reference to Magner that I have come across was in the Wills Index, as follows: 'Magner, James, corn merchant from Cork, being 'weak in body but sound of mind' makes will out to his brother William, a woollen draper, etc' (1813). I don't know who James and William were.

I would greatly appreciate any information you can send me, either by e-mail, fax or post. As I say, I have been unable to unscramble the tree you sent me but if there is another way you can e-mail it, I would appreciate it.

I very much look forward to hearing from you

Your family tree came through' fine this time. Many thanks. I have had a quick read of it and none of the names seem familiar as yet.

I have no knowledge of any of the Magner doctors going to New Jersey but it is possible - there were so many of them in the medical profession. Ditto with Australia, but my knowledge of the family is very limited. I will try to find out.

Many thanks for mailing the list Regards

Hi Jim,

My home address is NSW, Australia

Have checked my Magner file as I have information on another Magner family.

Michael (b:1795 / 96) and Thomas (b:1797/98) Magner arrived in Sydney in 1822 from Castlekevin, 3 miles NE of Mallow in Co Cork.

Their father was David Magner born 1770/80, lived Castlekevin. They arranged for other family members to come to Australia these include Margaret b: 1803, possibly Catherine, John, Mary and Hannah.

The information I have on this family is not complete but if anyone seems to be connected there is no problem to find it.

Could you also send me your snail mail address so that I can send you some of the information I have on the Australian Magner's.

Best wishes

I was born and raised in Lynn, Massachusetts. I was the oldest of 5 boys, James, Leo, Richard, Timothy and me John. Leo was killed while serving in the US Army in West Germany in 1978. Tim and his wife, Ann, are cops back home. He was once featured on the TV show COPS and on another TV show about tale of the highway patrol, although he is not a highway patrolman.

My father's name is John Philip Magner, the same and mine (and my son's). He was born, was raised, and spent almost his entire life in Lynn, Massachusetts. He was born in 1921, and he died in 1968. He was an only child. My mother's name is Muriel Emmons.

My grandfather's name was John Philip Magner. His wife's name was Mary S. Hanrahan. My grandfather was one of at least 3. There was him, his brother Joseph, and his sister Molly. I think all 3 are gone now.

I know the brothers are. I was told that my grandfather was born in Cork, Ireland. I don't know when he came to the States and I don't know when he was married. Sorry. I think he settled first in South Boston.

I know my grandmother was from there. She was Irish, but born in the US. They eventually moved to Lynn, to the family house. I was also told that his father's (my great-grandfather's) name was Thomas.

I have met some other Magner's from Alexandria, VA, including one who was the spitting image of my brother, Jimmy. I also met a Matthew Magner when I was in the USMC. He and I were Captains together in Okinawa. His family was from Cork, so I know we were related somewhere

One VERY interesting story about the Magner name. When I was in college, about 1974, I went into one of the historic burial grounds in Boston, MA. It is the one on Tremont Street, right beside the Park

Street Church and about one block away from Boston Common, towards Government Center, if you are familiar with Boston. This burial ground has Benjamin Franklin's family buried there and some, if not all, of the victims of the Boston Massacre, including Crispus Attucks. I also think that Paul Revere is buried there.

I went in there just for curiosity. I went in the front gate - the only entrance. I walked straight back as far as I could go. The walk ended, but you could go left or right on the walk. I went right as far as I could go. I then went right again until I came to a chain across the path. In front of me was a burial plot, a stone crypt-like thing about 3 feet high, rectangular in shape. This is a common structure in those old burial grounds.

When I saw that plot, I was determined to see who was buried there. So I crossed the chain and walked over. It was a MAGNER family crypt from the late 1700s. I believe one of them had passed away in 1798. I believe a couple of the names were William Magner and Mary Magner.

I took all my friends there to see it and all my family members. In 1978 But in 1986, I took my kids there and all the writing had pretty much worn away. I haven't been back since. I think if you are looking for the earliest arrivals from the Magner's, you might find that they come pretty close.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please ask.

John

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the note. I'm Dick Daly from Granville, Ohio and had hoped someone would see my posting and thankfully you did. My research of the Daly family led me to Patrick V. Magner and his wife, Ellen Jane Daly Cotter (she had been married before and widowed). In 1907 my dad's mother died and the boys were sent to live with various aunts. My dad, John Patrick Daly lived with Pat and Ellen Magner from 1907 until 1913 at 189 Howard St., New London, Connecticut. They had no children of their own.

Pat and Ellen are buried in St. Mary's Cemetery, New London. Pat was interred 5/19/1931 at age 68. So, he must have been born sometime in 1862 or 63. I also found in the same cemetery a buried plot for Thomas Magner, his wife, Ellen, and a Baby Magner. Thomas was interred there 1/3/1892 at age 42 and his wife, Ellen interred 5/14/1887 at age 38. The baby has no dates listed. Is any of this familiar? Keep in touch! I'd like to hear what you have.
