Magan family branch to which we belong first shows up in Pittsburgh, PA, on the 1830 Census, in the person of Arthur Magan.Other names appear later, especially Patrick, Edward Francis (my own ggf), then move up the Allegheny Valley in search of employment, I assume.My gf, Edward Francis Magan (Jr.), ended up in the small Armstrong County town of Templeton (Pine Twp), where the family remained until the death of my parents in the 1970's.
Another of Edward Francis, Sr.'s sons, John H. Magan also lived near Templeton in 1900.
Other surnames connected to family are: Southworth, Boyd, McCoy, Rivers, Reed, Smith, Anthony, Walker, McGann, Beer, Leeger, Guthrie, Daugherty, Rogers (also Rodgers)
Our immediate family is now widely dispersed, again having had to follow employment opportunities.
My second wife, Donna Louise Rivers Magan, and I live in Butler, PA, because I came here in 1960 as a teacher in the local school district.My age is 65, Donna's is 46.We have a Daughter, Cortney Lynn Magan Anthony, married to Walter Lee Anthony, and two beautiful grandchildren, Ashton Andrew (age 4), and Kashmir Diana (age 3).
I would love to hear from others researching these names, especially Magan and Southworth.Magan is often found spelled McGan or McGann for various reasons.There are a lot of us here in the US of A, so lets talk!
