I did see that as that is where it said Margaret died in Boston which I was sceptical of. Thank you for giving me the link.

Is Thomas Watterson, b. circa 1864-1868, a brother?  If so, his death entry in Westerly, RI states his parents are John and ALICE Watterson.

I don't know if Thomas was a sibling although he could well be. At the moment, I do not have any siblings for Margaret. Thomas is within the age to be a possible sibling. I will follow up  on Thomas if I can.
Thank you

There is a tree on Anc.... that supports Thomas, Margaret, and Mary Ann being siblings of John Watterson and Alicia Lee.  (Carnaghan Family Tree)

Thank you Genealiza. With the info that you gave me on Thomas, I had just found that same tree. So looks like Thomas and Margaret were siblings, with parents John Watterson and Alicia Lee.
You are a great detective.

You're welcome.  Glad I could help provide a bit more information on your search.  If I remember correctly, that tree didn't show any sources, so be wary of accepting everything without corroborating it.

Great RJ137! Absolute proof that Thomas was a sibling to Margaret Pickering. Thank you. And Genealiza, I do try to corroborate everything as it is so possible to make mistakes when people use the same names over and over again in a family. You found Thomas which broke things loose researching this family.
