Margaret was the great-grandmother of LDS President Thomas Spencer Monson.

A granddaughter, Agnes Woodbury, recalled some memories of Margaret Ellen Miller Watson in her biography:

"My Grandmother Watson lived next door to us on the south. Her home was on the corner of 5th South and 3rd West. It was made of adobe and very well insulated. Our home was not separated by a fence from Grandma's house, so we had a big yard where we could play baseball, hide and seek, and lots of other fun games. When we were little, we never went very far from home."

"It seemed that every night, the members of Mom's family who lived nearby would always gather at Grandma Watson's house just to visit and discuss the events of the day. We were always a very close family."

"I remember Grandma Watson as a very loving, but strict individual. She was Scottish and very proud of it. She would sit in a little rocking chair on the back porch and rule the neighborhood. She died in 1918, and we all missed her for a long, long time."
