    • Margaret immigrated as a child, presumably with her parents, in 1851, according to the 1900 Census.

    • According to the 1900 Census, Margaret is a widow. She has had 8 children, of whom, 7 are still living. That means that either John or Joseph died between 1880 and 1900.

    • The 1910 census lists Margaret and her parents as from Ir. English, rather than just Ireland. I believe this was done to distinguish Northern Ireland from Ireland.

  • Notes 
    • It appears that perhaps Margaret's family came to the US prior to 1850 since they are not found in the 1850 census.

      Since I find Margaret in the 1910 Census but not the 1920 Census (yet), I suspect that she died between 1910 and 1920.
