Janice, were you thinking this may have been your Margaret, as per other thread?

I donít believe it is.

I would agree to this being 2 different people at opposite ends of the country.

I'm assuming "Yetholm, Roxburghshire" was from a/some census'?

What census' do you have her on & what is her age/birth yr on each for an average, when did she die & what was her age then?

What were the names of Margaret's children in order which may give a clue to her parentage although the marriage seems the way to go which would also give witnesses which may help further?

Just catching up...

Is this them with son James, on the 1851 census:

On the 1861: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M71Y-FZD

1871: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:V55L-2RV

Looking at names it would look most likely Mother's name was Jane?

I don't think Ludovick would be a contender for father?..

Looks like Rosie has found Margaret!

Might be a Possible birth record
Margret Ledgerwood
20 September 1825
Baptism 30 September 1825
Yetholm Roxburgh Scotland
Father John Ledgerwood
Mother Jane Riddle
