Born to Peter Demare, an immigrant from Oberhäuserhof, Duchy of Nassau (today, near Burgschwalbach, Rheinpfaelz, Germany) and Sophie Landman(n), an immigrant said to have been from Hanover, Germany. Baptized Thursday, 29 October 1863 by the Rev. D. Gilbert at Lutheran Church of the Ascension, Savannah (today the church is located at 420 Bull Street, Wright Square). Baptismal name: "Frederica Margaretta Demaree," as spelled by the pastor. After the Civil War the family relocated to Nyack, New York, where "Maggie" got a job as a servant in the home of Rev. George H. Wallace and his family. Rev. Wallace was at that time the pastor of the Presbyterian Church of Nyack.

Married EDWIN BOSWORTH STONE, worker (a laster?) in a Nyack shoemaking factory, circa 1885. Mother of PHILIP NELSON STONE and EVELYN C. STONE WARRINER (both born in Nyack, NY) and DAVIS HANDY STONE, KATHERINE BELLE STONE DECELLES, CHARLES HOBSON STONE, and SUSAN TRACY RICE STONE BARBER (born in Massachusetts). Margaret gave birth to one additional child who died before the 1900 census. She lived in Hinsdale, Mass. (1889), Cummington, Mass. (1898-1900), Plainfield, Mass. (1902-1910), Pittsfield, Mass. (1914) and Northampton, Mass. (1913; 1916-1923, first with her oldest daughter, Evelyn, then with her youngest daughter, Susan). While living in Northampton she worked as a "reemer" in a brushmaking shop (factory).

She died of diabetes at 3:00 p.m., 7 May 1923 at the age of 59 at her residence at 129 Warner Street (5th Ward), Northampton, Hampshire County, Massachusetts.

Following a funeral at 3 p.m. at her home on 9 May 1923 (the Rev. J. F. Watts officiating), she was buried at Spring Grove Cemetery, Northampton in Space #1 in the Justin B. Warriner Lot, Section E, Lot 42 (rear half of lot transferred to Mrs. Alfred Barber in 1950). Undertaker: O. F. Ely & Son, Northampton.
