All of Mary Margaret and John Abraham's children were born in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania except the last son who was born in Hagerstown, Washington County, Maryland. It may have been from Hagerstown that the family bravely set out to join Rev.

Both Mary Margaret and her husband are buried in the Pioneer Cemetery in Aurora, Preston County, (West) Virginia.
