Margaret married Walter Albert Hagan (b 1900, d 1964) abt 1930 at Minnesota although some sources say they were married in 1929.

The family moved to California before 1942. Found in the 1945 San Jose, California City Directory.

After Walter's death, I believe Margaret married a Mr. Joe Nagal for a short while.

Her third marriage was to Leroy Thompson on October 28, 1966 at Siskiyou, California. Leroy and Margaret did not have children and eventually moved to live in Oregon.
