Birth: 1900
White Lake
Sullivan County
New York, USA
Death: Jul. 18, 1936
Milford
Pike County
Pennsylvania, USA

Margaret's middle name was in honor of her mother's sister and only sibling, Cecilia. At the age of two, Margaret and her parents moved from White Lake, N.Y., to Milford, Penna., where Margaret's four younger siblings were all born.

She possessed a light-hearted and very happy disposition. She did not much enjoy taking piano lessons in her youth, but her parents did not give her much choice in the matter. Even as an adult woman, though, she enjoyed whistling.

She attended Barnard College at Columbia University and then worked at the main branch of the New York Public Library.

On October 14, 1922, Margaret married Clinton D. Wolfe in their own home, which they had already prepared. By marrying, they united two prominent Milford families.

Margaret and Clinton had four children: Leanna, Eddie, Grace and Marion. Margaret later died in childbirth. Her eldest grandchild would be named Margaret; a niece would be named Cecile.
