Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 11, 1872
Queens County
Nova Scotia, Canada
Death: Jun. 17, 1931
Oakland County
Michigan, USA

Margaret Cecelia Irving was born in Liverpool, Queens County, Nova Scotia, Canada, to an English sea captain, Joseph William Irving, and his first wife, Margaret Ann McQuinn.

On May 10, 1894, Maggie married Albert Martin Robinson, a chocolate and soap maker, in Dartmouth, Halifax County, Nova Scotia. Together, they had seven children, Albert Cecil Robinson, Ernest Ellsworth Robinson, Clifford Garfield Robinson, Maynard C. Robinson, Mabel Cecelia Robinson, Albert Irving Sinclair Robinson and Evelyn Pearl Robinson Snyder. Unfortunately, Albert M. Robinson died 13 March 1909, at Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada, of tuberculosis.

Two years later, Maggie married the Rev. Thomas Cook Scott ("Scotty") in Halifax, Nova Scotia. In June 1924, the Methodist Episcopal Church in Michigan, USA, issued local preacher's licenses to both Maggie and Scotty. They began preaching at churches throughout Michigan.

Despite the fact that she was rumored to be not the nicest of folk, Maggie was very active in social work. She was a member of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union. As a member of this group, she would go from bar to bar with her axe and/or picket sign. Further, on December 28, 1925, Maggie sent a letter to the White House regarding world peace and received a reply from the Department of State. Further, she was very active in the Oak Park Methodist Episcopal Church, where her son, the Rev. Ernest E. Robinson was the pastor.

After Scotty died in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Maggie went to live with her daughter, Pearl, in Pontiac, Michigan. She died there of breast cancer at age 59.
