Margaret is presumed buried in "Keiser's" Cemetery, Verdilla, Chapman Twp., in present day Snyder county, PA. This was the cemetery on whose grounds were donated by her father, Jacob Keiser. The surrounding church today is known as St. Paul's U.C.C.. Margaret is named as the "mother" of Barbara Riegel on her daughter's birth certificate, noting her surname of KEISER on the certificate as well. Margaret was living w/a family by the name of BICKEL in the 1860 US PA census records for Washington Twp., Snyder county. She listed her age as 68, which coincided with her birth date, and under "occupation" she listed "keeping house". Her husband was deceased (a year earlier) at the time of this census. Margaret's daughter Barbara noted in the 1885 Iowan census that her mother was a native of America.
