Marriage Notes for EDWARD MAGNER and MARY MCCOY:

Jenna Magner Johnson - "My parents were married in London and came to the U.S. - 1865 - Civil War was about over.  They were 21 days en route by ship.  Went to Georgetown, Ct. to the home of father's Uncle Patrick Maloney - father of Katy and Patsy.  Remember when my dad served as groomsman for Bob Miller, mother was 18 and she was shown great kindness.  They always gave them horse and carriage to drive to Danbury to mass.  They then moved to Norwalk.  Bought a piece of land and neighbors got together and built their first home.  Quiet (?) Jim was born in Georgetown.  While the house was being constructed, they lived in a house nearby which they turned over to the Skidd family later.  My parents brought Mr. and Mrs. Skidd with 11 children to this house.  They already had two daughters in this country.  They were a wonderful family and struggled hard to success."

Frank Wynn, two brothers, Thomas J. of Bridgeport, and John W. of Norwalk, one sister, Mrs. John Johnson, and seven grandchildren

     Mr. Magner was born in Georgetown, Nov. 26, 1866, the son of the late Edward F. and Mary Magner.  He was a funeral director in Norwalk for many years until he retired in 1934.  He was a member of the Catholic Union Council, Knight of Columbus, the Hope Hose Fire Co.; and a former member of the Connecticut Funeral Directors Association.

     Funeral Services will be held from the Magner Funeral Home, 12 Mott Avenue, on Tuesday morning at 9:30 and in St. Mary's Church where a solemn mass of requiem will be celebrated at 10 o'clock.  Interment will be in the family plot in St. Mary's Cemetery.  Friends may call at the funeral home Sunday afternoon and evening and Monday afternoon and evening.

     Mr. Magner attended local public schools.  In 1889, he opened a hotel in Connecticut Avenue and sold the business in 1894.  He then entered the livery business and while so engaged also learned the undertaking business, serving as assistant to various local funeral directors.

     Mr. Magner formed his own business in 1913 which he conducted until his retirement.

     He was one of the few men in this city who years ago could drive a four-horse team.  Mr. Magner was widely known in the community.

     Mr. and Mrs. Magner would have been married 59 years next June 27.

                          

 

                                                             HIS FRIENDLINESS A HELP

 

     Friends - and he had many of them - paid respects over the weekend and today to James H. Magner, whose death occurred Saturday after a long illness.  This evening others will call at the Magner Funeral Home at 12 Mott Avenue and the final rites will be held from that address at 9:30 o'clock on Tuesday morning, and at 10 o'clock at St. Mary's Church with a solemn mass of requiem.

     Today, friends were recalling pleasant memories to which "Jim" Magner contributed.  Throughout Norwalk, throughout the valley area to Georgetown where he was born - he was held in high regard.  As a livery business proprietor and still more generally as a funeral director, he was known and esteemed.

     Probably his philosophy of life as much as anything won "Jim" Magner friends, for he was an optimist by nature, always ready, always determined to see the silver lining.  And he helped others do the same.  For years he conducted a funeral parlor in Main Street, near the firehouse, back in the "twenties" and "thirties" and many a person with a problem went away with burden lightened after counsel around that little round stove in the backroom at No.34.

     "Jim" Magner never did anything to hurt anyone; his kindly nature, cheery way and sense of humor helped a lot of folks.  And it is thus that he will be remembered by friends who will see him again in the eternal realm where good friends are reunited at last.
