There's https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schloss_Magenheim, but Rheinpfalz and Alzey sound like it might be https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mauchenheim, which belongs to Alzey today.

But Alzey is in Rheinhessen and not in the Pfalz.
But Mauchenheim was:

"Mauchenheim gehörte zur Kurpfalz bzw. ab 1777 zu Kurpfalz-Bayern, wurde 1798–1814 französisch, und kam danach zur bayrischen Provinz Rheinpfalz."

Mauchenheim belonged to Kurpfalz, after 1777 called Kurpfalz-Bayern, became French from 1798 to 1814 and finally came to the bavarian province Rheinpfalz.

On the other hand, it belongs to Alzey-Worms county today.
Spoken in Southern Bayrisch Dialect, would Mauchenheim have sounded like Magenheim in US?
It's possible, very much so even. The local dialect would be Pfälzisch and in that dialect -au- becomes -aa-.
