Maggie was the mail order bride of Mr. Washington Tshopp (second husband). She went to Oklahoma to marry him though they had never met. The newlyweds lived for a while in her home near Bolivar, MO. Washington died in a farm accident in Oklahoma. Maggie returned to the Bolivar area and married David Covington and they lived in his home.
