Notes

  • Margaret is commonly referred to as Maggie, in records and familyreferences.  The name given her on her memorial on Find a Grave isMary Margaret Black McSwain.  On her son John's memorial his mother'sname is given as Margaret Catherine Rebecca Black.  I have found nodocumentation for either Mary or Catherine.  The three given names onher death certificate are Margaret Rebecca Eliza.

    The birth states are confused on both the 1920 and 1930 censuses.  In1920 and 1930, Margaret Black is reported as born in North Carolina.But her children's reports all report the mother born in SouthCarolina.  Oliver is reported in 1920 as born in South Carolina, butin 1930 it is North Carolina.  In 1880 his birth state was reported asSouth Carolina.  Does this mean that some or all of Margaret'schildren were the children of a first husband, not Oliver?
