Born to Peter Demare, an immigrant from Oberhäuserhof, Duchy of Nassau (today, near Burgschwalbach, Rheinpfaelz, Germany) and Sophie Landman(n), an immigrant said to have been from Hanover, Germany. Baptized Thursday, 29 October 1863 by the Rev. D. Gilbert at Lutheran Church of the Ascension, Savannah (today the church is located at 420 Bull Street, Wright Square). Baptismal name: "Frederica Margaretta Demaree." After the Civil War the family relocated to Nyack, New York, where "Maggie" got a job as a servant in the home of Rev. George H. Wallace and his family.

Married EDWIN BOSWORTH STONE, worker (a laster?) in a Nyack shoemaking factory, circa 1885. Mother of PHILIP NELSON STONE and EVELYN C. STONE WARRINER (both born in Nyack, NY) and DAVIS HANDY STONE, KATHERINE BELLE STONE DECELLES, CHARLES HOBSON STONE, and SUSAN TRACY RICE STONE BARBER (born in Massachusetts).

(1914) and Northampton, Mass. (1913; 1916-1923, first with her oldest daughter, Evelyn, then with her youngest daughter, Susan). While living in Northampton she worked as a "reemer" in a brushmaking shop (factory).

She died of diabetes at 3:00 p.m., 7 May 1923 at the age of 59 at her residence at 129 Warner Street (5th Ward), Northampton, Hampshire County, Massachusetts.
