    Also I think Mae Whitman’s maternal grandmother was Jane Frances (Maginnis), who was the daughter of Louis Eugene Maginnis and Nan Byrnes. I found references to Donald Carr Musick Jr.’s marriage who was born December 20, 1923 and died January 23, 2003 so I am pretty sure the maternal grandmother is the right person. apologizes if I am wrong. trying to be helpful

    Mae Whitman is at least 1/16th Irish from her maternal grandfather’s side of the family. As noted Donald Carr Musick Jr. was the son of Donald C. Musick and Ethel C. Craden. Donald C. Musick (Sr.) was the son of William Carr Musick and Margaret Cronin. Cronin was from Missouri and born to Irish parents. Cronin is a common Irish surname.
