They are listed in the 1890 San Francisco directory here as Margy:  http://www.sfgenealogy.com/php/dbs/1890sfd.php?page=869

Michael & Rodger are in the 1907 city directory here:  http://www.sfgenealogy.com/php/dbs/1907sfd.php?page=527

James' son Rodger appears to be in the California death index with a death date of 26 Nov. 1940.  You can see it at rootsweb.com.  There's also a Patrick Margey there - perhaps that was the cousin listed above.

Hi DoireM,

I have recently put a link on the USA resources board which has San Francisco newspapers on line.
http://www.loc.gov/chroniclingamerica/index.html

You may find something on the family you are looking for .

When I quickly looked for you under Michael the death announcement was there for his wife Alice (Bassett).

Hello Cathy,

On the newspapers site I found 23 items with the Margey surname.  I was on the 9th article when I got closed off.  I retried and got this message!!   "This US Government system is restricted by law to authorized, official use only."

Sorry Cathy, it turned out that the site closed down for updates.  I tried a few hours later and was able to access the remaining items.

Thanks for all your help.
