Margaret Aspell was baptised on 11 October 1857 in Tullamore, Offaly, Ireland. Her parents were Michael Aspell and Maria Savage and her godparents were John Long and Margaret Shiel.[1] Most U.S. records list her birth year as either 1865 or 1868.

She married Francis "Frank" Guilfoyle about 1893 in New York City.[2] They had one daughter: Mary (Guilfoyle) Reynolds (1893 - 1984). Passenger records from 1895 show Margaret and Mary visiting family in Ireland.[3][4]

The 1900 U.S. Census and 1905 New York Census shows Frank, Margaret and Mary living in a tenement house at 422 West 26th Street in Manhattan.[5][6]

Margaret Guilfoyle, nee Aspell, died on November 29, 1905. She was buried at Calvary Cemetery in Woodside, Queens, New York.[7]
