Mary Magee was the daughter of Stephen Henry Paret, who was born in Tricolet, France, and his first wife, Mary Comstock. Stephen and Mary lived in New York City, and they had following five children: Catherine R. Paret who married Sylvester Taylor; John Paret, who married Hester Levy; Mary Paret; Peter Paret, who married Jane Keesley; and Stephen Paret, who died young in a yellow fever epidemic. John and Peter and their families remained in the New York City area, while Catherine and Sylvester Taylor ended up in Portage Co., Ohio.

After Stephen's wife Mary died, he married as his 2nd wife Hannah (Van Brakle) Polhemus, who already had children by her first husband John Polhemus. Stephen and Hannah, who also resided in New York City, had Stephen Paret, who married Eliza Halsey Green; Hannah J. Paret, who married John Kip Cadmus; Samuel Paret, who died in infancy; Elsey Paret, who died young; Sarah Paret; and Hartshorne Pascoli Paret.

Around 1825, daughter Mary married Charles Magee, and the couple settled in Groveland, where his family lived. Mary and Charles had at least five children, Catherine P. Magee, who died young; Sarah L. Magee, who never married; Charles Henry Magee, who married Julia Ann Teitsworth; John Magee, who married an Eliza; and Julia A. Magee, who married Joseph Emory White.
