Margaret Orr Brown "Maggie" Wilkinson Houston
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 8, 1883
Hamilton
South Lanarkshire, Scotland
Death: 1947
Ontario, Canada

The third of 10 children born to William Pepper Wilkinson and Susan Brown in Hamilton, Lanarkshire, Scotland.

Her Scottish Birth Registration states Margaret BROWN Wilkinson her mother's name, but in Canada all papers state Margaret ORR Wilkinson, her grandmother's name.

About 1884 the family immigrated to Nipissing, Ontario, where the youngest seven were born. There Margaret met and married Joseph Houston in 1906 in Lee Valley, Hallam, Algoma.

Margaret remained in Toronto with the children while Joseph was an on-site engineer with the St. Anthony's Gold Mine near Webbwood, Sables-Spanish Rivers.

Additional children include Josephine Chambers Houston born 1907 and a son.
