Biography

Williams-66757

Margaret was born Mar 6 1847, probably in Clay County, Kentucky (or possibly Perry County). Possibly She is the daughter of Frederick Williams and Abby Lewis.

Her parents probably died when she was very young, because she appeared on the 1850 US census in the household of her maternal grandparents when she was 3 years old.

Margaret's parents were not enumerated on the 1850 US census and are believed to have died in the late 1840s.

She had several brothers and sisters: Phoebe, Silas, Thaddeus, John, and possibly Sarah, are known out of at least eight children.

Margaret, age 26, b abt 1849, married William H. Anderson, age 41, b abt 1834, in 18 November 1875 in Jackson County, Kentucky. They were married at the home of Samuel Hollinsworth. Witnesses were Joseph Parsons and Edward Anderson. The officiate was William S. Adams. [1] [2] [3]

They had at least one daughter, Sarah, born in 1879. Some census records (1900 and 1930) indicate there may have been another child that died. However, this may simply be confusion because, during her widowhood, Margaret lived with her daughter Sarah and granddaughter Ledoshia.

Some think that William's son Alexander was also Margaret's, however, he appears to be the last child born in a previous marriage; William had been twice widowed, and Sarah was his third wife.

Margaret was widowed in 1880. She never remarried.

She died Nov 28 1937, age 90, in Burning Springs, Clay County, Kentucky. [4] Her spouse is listed as William H. Anderson. Her mother was Marget Williams. [5]

She is buried in Anderson Cemetery in or near Burning Springs, Clay County, Kentucky. [6]

Research Notes

More research in needed in order to determine what happened to Margaret between the death of her grandparents, who were presumably her guardians from at least 1850 until their deaths later in the 1850s, and her marriage to William Anderson in 1875.

It should be noted that Margaret as daughter of Fredrick Williams and AbigaiI Lewis is inferred; Fredrick Williams and Thaddeus Lewis were next door neighbors on both the 1830 and 1840 US census, so she may have been living with them for that reason instead of because they were her grandparents.

A reliable source showing her parents' names is needed (their names were not on her death certificate). Failing that, any document showing that she is the sister to any of their other children.

Daughter Sarah, seen in 1900 census is not in 1880 census, which she should have, so 1900 Census may be a different person.

Death source states Margaret's mother was Margaret, not Abigail, so that matches 1850 and 1860 census with Sidney and Margaret, discarding the 1850 census with Thadeus and parents Fredrick and Abigail, discards those same parents seen on Find a Grave page.
