Margaret Jane Swartz (1914-1997)
« on: Wednesday 01 June 16 01:46 BST (UK) »
  Margaret Jane Swartz (1914-1997) hailed from the Natural Bridge, Virginia, and lived in Illinois and Texas. She was married to Talmage E Dawson (1894-1974) twice and divorced him twice. One of her marriages to Talmage was Dec 11 1952 in Cook Co, Illinois. The other unknown (or 2nd) marriage was between 1930-1960 in Cook County, illinois. During these marriages, she was known as Margaret J Dawson.
  I am looking for the date on the unknown marriage to Talmage.
  Margaret Jane Swartz was also married to Norman Allen Langley (1905-1980) in abt 1976 in the Chicago area, most likely, since that is where they settled down. Margaret Jane Swartz died as a Widow of Norman Allen Langley and was often known as Margaret J Langley
  Looking for info on that marriage date as well.

A previous thread about Talmage Dawson indicates that he was married to someone else for part of the 1930's - http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=735610.0

There is a marriage index at www.cookcountygenealogy.com which is available with free registration.  I only see one marriage for Talmage & Margaret there.

Margaret Jane Swartz (1914-1997) relationship to Pres. George Washington

A possible link for Margaret Jane Swartz to Pres. George Washington.
  Margaret Jane Swartz is the daughter of Gayry Elizabeth Gibboney Major (1888-1935). Gayry Elizabeth Gibboney Major is the daughter  of John Edward Major (1848-1913). John Edward Major is the son of Emily Marian Bright (1821-1858). Emily Marian Bright is the daughter of Margaret Peggy Willis Tinsley (1789-1850). Margaret Peggy Willis Tinsley is the daughter of  James Tinlsley (1761-1853). James Tinsley is the son of Captain William Wyatt Tinsley ( 1742- 1816). Capt. William Wyatt Tinsley is the son of Margaret Taylor (1705-1782).  Margaret Taylor is the daughter of Martha Montague Thompson (1679-1762). Martha Montague Thompson is the daughter of Eleanor Montague (1632-1680). Eleanor Montague is the daughter of Peter Montague II (1603-1659). Peter Montague II is the son of Peter Montague I (1580-1639).
  Therefore, Peter Montague I (1580- 1639) is the 9th Gr. Grandfather of Margaret Jane Swartz (1914-1997).
   Now, Peter Montague I appears  as a common ancestor to both Margaret Jane Swartz and George Washington. Let us proceed to demonstrate the connection.
 Peter Montague I (1580-1639) is the Father of Peter Montague II (1603-1659). Peter Montague II is the Father of Peter Montague III (1631-1695). Peter Montague III is the Father of Mary Montague (1665-1743). Mary Montague is the Mother of Mary Ball (1708-1789). Finally, Mary Ball and Capt. Augustine Washington are the parents of George Washington (1732-1799), First President of the USA.
  If these connections are valid, then Margaret Jane Swartz is a 4th Cousin 6 times removed to George Washington.

Margaret used to like to say about the Illinois Lottery, 'I could use a little bit of that money.' She would play now and then but was not addicted to gambling.
