From: (Patrick Murphy)

Area = Fermoy and Glanworth, Co. Cork

I am seeking information regarding Patrick Magner (son of Edmond Magner of Fermoy) who married Catherine Kelleher (baptized in Glanworth Co. Cork on Sept 29, 1869, parents Michael Kelleher and Mary Neill).

Patrick and Catherine were married on Feb 20, 1896 in Glanworth. They had at least one child, Honora, baptised on April 4, 1898 in Fermoy, Co. Cork.

They had a second daughter named Mary born sometime in 1900. Patrick was a shoemaker. At the time of the 1901 census they were living in Fermoy. We are interested in any additional information about this family and its descendents. I have additional information regarding Catherine's family.

Area = Ireland/USA

I am looking for information about Bridget Magner Born Feb. 1835 in Ireland. She came to the USA approx. in 1849 at age 14. She married Patrick Redmond about 1862. She resided in the Chicago, IL area till she died in 1902. I am trying to confirm this information which came from census data and obituaries - and cemeteries. Apparently, she had a sister -according to her obit - but no name was available. She is my great grandmother. If there is any connection, please contact me at Thanks and good luck to everyone. This is a great site - thanks for providing it to all of us.

Here is some information I found that confirms John Magner's 1st and his wife Joan Magner. This should fill in some of the blanks. Now all we need is John's ship.Maryland Calendar of Wills, Volume 5 page 195, the following Will of John Magnor, planter, Kent Co, MD written Oct 11, 1724, probated June 19, 1725

To wife Joan, extx, dwelling plantation during life; at her decease to son Edward and hrs.; residue of estate absolutely, excepting a legacy to son Edward afsd. Testator directs he be buried on dwelling plantation, Test. Maurice Roberts, John Dunford, Hannah Dunford. Liber 18, Folio


Found nothing in the Wills after John's.

Regards to all, Bob

Hi, Thanks for the information. Your site is a great help to everyone and it's an attractive site. I did go thru the queries trying to connect, but my info is so sketchy at this point - it's difficult. This was a branch of my family that was not a part of my life. So, I have been playing detective for years and am piecing it together - but want to get documentation. Can't rely on census and obit info totally, but am using them as a guide. The name Magner was listed in an obit for my great grandmother, but her 1902 death c. didn't have maiden names as a part of the info.

I am from Central IL - lower part - near Effingham. I will keep in touch and I'll pass along any Magner info I find. Bye take care, Pat

Name = Jennifer Word

Recently, my friend and I were talking and we figured out that we are both Magners. We were astonished at what a small world it is. Consequently, we were trying to determine how related we are. The interesting part is that he is from Australia and my Magner roots trace back only to Kansas. Do you have any records of the Magner roots to Kansas?

This is what I know: My Mother's maiden name is Magner. My Grandfather is Irvin Magner who now lives in Chanute, Kansas. My Great-Grandmother Gennie Magner (maiden name Gager) also lived in Chanute when she died earlier this year. There are many cousins as well as aunts and uncles.

Any help that you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You, Jennifer T.S. Word

From: (Marilyn Evans)



When visiting Castlemagner, we did, indeed, stop at the Castle Bar. We had a date to meet with Geoff, but, unfortunately, he was unable to make it. As was the case during our trip, time was a factor. There never was enough of it. We did climb a couple of fences and were able to get some good pictures of the ruins. That was luck, because the next day when we returned, the cows were there.

I have been thinking of sending a query to the Mallow Heritage Centre. Have you ever tried that? It costs $50, but would be worth it if I could obtain the information I'm lacking.

James Magner, born Abt 1810, a native of the Parish of Ballygriffin, County Cork, was advised by his physician to travel, his health being poor. He visited New York City, where he met Mary Sullivan (b.1816), also a native of County Cork. Mary was visiting her brother (don't know his name). The crossing, which took six weeks, was so rough that she had no desire to return to Ireland. She remained with her brother and, subsequently, met James Magner.

James and Mary had attended the same church in Ireland, and possibly were acquainted, but the Magners were an aristocratic family and the Sullivan’s lived on a dairy farm. James and Mary probably were married in New York, and later settled in Waukesha, Wisconsin. James is buried in the Catholic cemetery in Waukesha. The inscription of his tomb reads: James Magner, died Sep. 16, 1855 age 45 yrs, a native of the Parish of Ballygriffin, Cty Cork, Ireland.

James and Mary had five children:

David, born 1846, died in infancy

Maria Elizabeth (my great grandmother), born April 16, 1847 in Waukesha; married Michael Ryan on April 8, 1872; died in Medford, Wis., February 16, 1922

Joseph, died in infancy

Margaret married James A. O'Neil of Chicago on February 12, 1871, died a few months later

Ellenora, married to John Cahill on January 1, 1871; died in 1928

That just about covers what we know about them, but maybe we'll find a connection with someone out there. My Aunt tells me that there was family in Pennsylvania, but couldn't give me any further information. Thanks for spreading the word! Marilyn Evans
