Janice, I haven't checked out this site in a number of months so just saw your response. Unfortunately I don't have much info for you. I am a Magwood through marriage only and a divorced one at that. My ex father-in-law is Charles McLaughlin Magwood (b. Nov. 1913). His only sibling, a brother is John Mc something (b. 1911?). While I was married, 1971-1980, I wasn't that interested in genealogy so am unsure of the background. Their father was Newton, a doctor, born around 1880. I think all in Canada. I think their background was English because the other side was Scottish (my mother-in-law)and it was never mentioned that the Magwoods were Scottish. I was born Dec 1948; we're about the same age. If you want more info, such as addresses so you can write these people, just write back. I've had a number of requests from other Magwoods, esp. in the USA.
