Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 5, 1836
Illinois, USA
Death: Feb. 1, 1874
Randolph County
Illinois, USA

She is the daughter of Adam Parkhill & Martha.

1st Wife of Robert Franklin Dennis, m. November 26, 1855, Randolph County, Illinois

Note: Her name and dates are also listed on her parents headstone at Evergreen Cemetery in Ava, Jackson, Illinois. It includes her siblings names as well. The marker in Evergreen is a cenotaph for Margaret. She is buried here in Dennis Cemetery.

During the 1850 U.S. census, Margaret is living with her mother, Martha, and her siblings, Samuel, John, Hamilton, Morrison, Mariah, Isabella and Matilda in Collins, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. Her father is deceased. Her mother was born in Ireland and all her siblings were born in Illinois.

When the 1860 U.S. census was recorded, Margaret and Robert are living in Randolph County, Illinois. Their daughter Anna is 1 year old and the only child in the household. She reports she was born in Pennsylvania on this census.

I was unable to find the 1870 U.S. census for Margaret and Robert but I was able to find the 1880 U.S. census that shows Robert living in Wine Hill, Randolph County, Illinois with his and Margaret's children, Ellen, Robert and Ettie.
