Margaret died from complications with William's June 27th birth.
After her death, her husband remarried to Tamson Bazzill, who helped raise Margaret's young children.
Margaret's four living sons served the Confederate cause during the Civil War, when son, John Lewis, died.
Note, Parent's names, birth places and some DOD's of children courtesy of Boswell family tree, owner: bosnie.
Based on birth places of children, the family moved from KY to Windsor MO between 1831-1834, back to KY. between 1834-1837, and to Johnson Co MO. between 1837-1840, where Margaret died in 1842.
However Owsley researches show the family moved from KY to Johnson Co MO by covered wagon in 1839. Dau Nancy's place of birth may be incorrect.
Following from rootsweb:
"Margaret was aged 20-30 in the 1830 census and because her parents married in November 1809 it is presumed she was born in 1810. For more information on the Stiles family and their descendants see "The Family of David Stiles, or, The ten tribes of the house of David: the ancestry and posterity of David Stiles, a native of New Jersey, an immigrant to Kentucky" (Louisville: Mayes Print Co., 1939), p. 113, 250"
