You need to give a lot more info given the number of people with that name

Was Price her maiden or married name
When and where was she born
When and where did she die
Names etc of any children - do not post details of any who are still living
If she died after 1939 - have you looked for her on the 1939 Register to establish her birthdate

She was a Price herself. She was born Wales Margaret Rutherford Price approx 1900. buried in Wales. was married to Thmas Scullion Balmer from Ayre Scotland...some vague ties between King Yethom and Balmers and smuggling. Her nickname was peggy coz she made pegs. read tea leaves and normal set of cards.

So you presumably have her on the 1901 and 1911 censuses with parents?

Do you have her marriage details as there doesn't appear to be anything on freebmd  See below - married in Scotland

If you use www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk - Thomas Scullion Balmer was born 1889 Ayr

The marriage was 1915 in Anderston so I suspect Margaret was born before 1900

Is her place of birth in Wales given on any of the censuses? A quick look on Freebmd for births around the right years throws up many of possibilities so you need to narrow down which one is yours. Presumably she will be living with parents and siblings - one of them might have a less common name which might help you trace the family.

If you purchase her Scottish marriage certificate you should find out more about her, such as parent's names. You will need to purchase some credits on Scotland's People. Cost is very reasonable.

As an aside: Margaret Price may well have made pegs, but "Peggy" is also a very common nickname for Margaret.  :)
