Immigrated to Oregon after the death of her first husband Barclay Kile (or Bartley Kyle) Caldwell in Lafayette County, Missouri. She and her children, age 6 to 23, took the southern route in 1846 crossing the salt flats in Utah. Their party (Harlan-Young Party) crossed the salt flats just days before the Donner party. Her son Arthur went to California with his wife Sarah Young while the rest went to Oregon - one child, Mary, died on the trail. Margaret settled near Jefferson, Marion Co, Oregon. She married James Madison Bates in 1847. Both are buried in Jefferson Cemetery.
