We have traced a hundred years old member of the Keasberry family
Agnes KeasberryAgnes Magness (born Keasberry) recently celebrated her centenary. Lou Cunico from Singapore sent us a link to EA News, The Magazine for Singapore Eurasians (Adobe Acrobat PDF).
Agnes Magness’ 100th birthday on 2 September 2005 was a milestone event bringing together over a hundred family members, close friends and well-wishers from around the world on 3 September in Singapore. The family clan – with several from the UK, Germany, Australia and Malaysia – paid homage to the grand dame and also took the opportunity to meet new members in the fold, re-ignite old ties and, naturally, enjoy themselves.
Mrs. Magness looked radiant and elegant in a yellow dress and an embroidered shawl. She remembered every one of her relatives by name as they came up to wish and embrace her. There were grandparents, parents, teens and babes in arms with surnames such as Cunico, Stewart, Keasberry, Marcus, Theseira, Berlandier, Reece, Soliano, Peters, Bracken, Gotz and Huet.
Younger relatives put together a Power Point show of old family snapshots that marked the milestones and memories. Reactions included chuckles, wonder, and some red faces! Mrs. Magness nodded knowingly as each one unfolded.

Agnes Magness (nee Keasberry) was born on 2 Sept 1905. Her grandfather Benjamin Peach Keasberry was the founder of the Princept Street Methodist Church in Singapore. Agnes grew up in Frankel Estate, attended Methodist Girls School where she later worked as a clerk for 10 years. She was introduced by a friend to widower James William Magness, who had four children. They were married at the Wesley Methodist Church. They have one son: Donald Magness.
