  • Sources have different forms of Mary Margaret's name.  Some have Mary Margaret, and some Mary Margaret Angeline.  There is some indication that some genealogies have combined two sisters, Mary and Margaret, but I have not sorted that out yet.  There is also the name Angeline associated with this person.  The wife of Walter Guyton McSwain appears in two censuses with the name Mary.  The name Margaaret Sepaugh is also associated with the wife of one William J Mullinax.  I have not been able to confirm this person's identity.
