Margaret was the daughter of James Daugherty and Mary Sherrer. She married Michael Carver on September 18, 1887. They were the parents of 9 children: Leo, Will, Clement, Joseph, Barnard, Margaret, Susan, Molly, and Grace.
August 5, 1926 - Carroll Times - Mrs. M. Carver passed away at her home, 211 South East street, Saturday morning at 7:15 o'clock after a lingering illness. She was taken sick in December 1925 but for several months previous to that time had been ailing. Medical science failed to stay her disease and although she was under treatment at various places, her trouble did not diminish.
From May 21 until June 14 she was a patient at the St. Anthony hospital, this city and from that time until the Sunday preceding her death, was up and down during the day, never failing to eat her meals at the table with the family. She made a heroic fight to live but on Sunday, July 25, was obliged to take to her bed and during the last days of her life suffered greatly.
Through her entire illness she was patient and uncomplaining, and remained conscious until a few hours before her death. In health she was a very active woman who took a leading part in the activities of the St. Joseph church of which she was a devout member. She was a member of the Married Ladles sodality and of the St. Joseph Sewing Circle of the church and was prominent in the activities of these societies. When sickness or death came to the homes of her friends she could always be depended upon to assist them in bearing their troubles.
As a girl Mrs. Carver was Miss Margaret Dougherty and was born on a farm near Boone November 22, 1867. Her mother died when she was but three years old and she was cared for by her sister, Mrs. J.C. Sparks of Boone, who survives her. Her marriage to M. Carver took place September 18, 1887. For 17 years after their marriage they resided in Missouri Valley, Ia., coming to Carroll May 3, 1907.
Besides the husband, nine children, a sister, two brothers, N.F. Daugherty and J.W. Daugherty of Belleville, Illinois, several grandchildren and countless friends survive. The children are Leo Carver, Carroll; Will Carver, Carroll; Mick Carver, Freeport, Illinois; Joe Carver, Des Moines; Barney Carver, Chicago, Illinois; Mrs. H.C: Foster, Pipestone, Minn.; Mrs. Carl Parr, Marshalltown, Ia.; Margaret and Grace at home.
During their mother's illness, the children made frequent trips home to spend as long a time with her as they could possibly arrange. All of the children were with her at the time of her death. Funeral services were held at the St. Joseph church Monday morning at 9 o'clock and interment was made in the St. Joseph cemetery.
Friends and relatives attending the funeral were Mrs. J.C. Sparks of Boone; N.F. Daugherty and J.F. Daugherty of Belleville, Illinois; Mr. and and Mrs. Maude Sullivan of Boone; Mrs. Dan Curran of Boone; Miss Margaret Carver, Boone; Miss Mary Finley, Sioux City; Mrs. Mike Coyle and granddaughter, Virginia, of Missouri Valley, and Mrs. F.C.
