Margaret Scott Backinger
Birth: Aug. 14, 1894
Pittsburgh
Allegheny County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Sep. 9, 1968
Elizabethtown
Lancaster County
Pennsylvania, USA

Margaret (Scott) Lowery Backinger was the widow of Harry Backinger. She was previously married from 1920-1927 to J. Willis Dalzell Lowery.

Margaret was a daughter of Alexander Douglas Scott and Paulina (Bittner) Macher Scott, and the sister of David William Scott Sr (Aug 22 1892- Jan 31 1974), Alexander Douglas Scott Jr (Apr 3 1896 - Oct 11 1918), Andrew Scott (May 14 1898 - Jan 19 1945) and Frederick Scott (Oct 6 1900 - Sep 21 1959).

She was the half-sister of John Bittner Macher (May 9 1883 - Feb 12 1968) and Catherine Elizabeth (Macher) Cunningham (Oct 19 1884 - Jan 10 1951).

Apparently during and/or at least shortly after the divorce from J. Willis Dalzell Lowery, Margaret was a beautician.

Margaret's niece (Mrs. Blanche Schubert) told me she has fond memories of visiting her on Sundays after church, and her Aunt Margaret fixing her hair.

Margaret died in the Masonic Home in Elizabethtown, PA.

She never had any children with either husband.
