Margareta Law was the second wife of Thaddeus Damascus Van Horn. They married August 12, 1856, in St. Pauls Church in New Orleans. Margaretta and TD had 10 children (4 of which are buried in this family tomb).

Her mother was Mary Ann (nee Simmonds) Law-Leland-Burlingson, born Jul 16, 1809, Linton, Kent, England, and died Feb 7, 1875, No. 5 Vernon Place, Bloomsbury Square, London, Middlesex, England.
