Magennis Family Genealogy Forum
My great grandfather, Issac Henry Stevenson - long dead - apparently claimed to have met one of his old Benraw neighbours, a Magennis from the "Top of the Hill" in Boston, Massachusetts in the early 1900's. (Sounds like Hugh comes from the same family)
I can remember my dad talking about the odd places you meet people and mentioning this. He thought it was more than a few million to one chance that anyone from Benraw would bump into a neighbout in America way back then.
As my dad is now dead I cannot ask him which Magennis it was or even if he remembered the first name...... but my brother in Canada is currently trying to trace any family connections we may have in Boston as my great grandfather left for America as a young man and spent many years there before returning home to die of old age before the second world war. Hope this is of some help.
