I have Margaret until the 1881 census when she is living at home with her parents Charles Millar and Isabella Stevenson she is a dressmaker .
On family search I have found  she died on the 31st May 1934 in Detroit Wayne Michigan her married name is Hughes .

There is no marriage for her on SP  who did she marry where  and did she have any family ?

Thanks

suzilad.

Interesting burial was Toronto 2/6/1934 - had been a USA resident for 20 years.

This could be the FIND A GRAVE entry. (Except it says Margaret Millard Hughes   ???)

Margaret Hughes - 1857 - 1934  and William Hughes 1857 - 1919

This could be grave.

The death certificate said Margaret was buried in Toronto.

There is a possibility on the 1911 Census 167 Selmuenda Toronto

William Hughes   64 born March 1957 England. Imnm 1905.
Margreta Hughes34 born August 1859 so the age should be more like 52
Archie Hughes   15 born England 1895.

 Apologies I thought I had written her date of birth it was 22nd of August 1856 in Dalkeith Midlothian

Scotland She has no middle names on birth cert.

Think the middle name given on find a grave was meant to be Millar not Millard - they often use the maiden name on these entries.
