The name we are really looking for information on is Magac, Magos, Magoish, Magach, Magotch, or any name that when pronounced would be spelled close to this. Suzanna's marriage name would be something close to one of the above, and supposedly Andrew, her husband, may have been born in Austria (Where, we don't know).
