Notes:  Margaret McNab was born 25 May 1876 in Appleton, Outagamie, Wisconsin.  She was the last of at least six children of Duncan and Celeste McNab.  In 1880, the family was living in Osborn, Outagamie, Wisconsin.  Duncan McNab was a farmer.  Duncan died 15 Dec 1892 in Outagamie County.  It is unknown when Celeste died.  By 1900, Duncan T. McNab was listed as head of the family, and a farmer.  His older brother Robert, was a farm laborer, and his younger sisters Janet and Margaret were also in the household.

According to family records, Margaret married Alexander Detwiller (Alex) on 28 Dec 1908 in Griggs County, North Dakota.  How and why she came to North Dakota is unknown.  Their only son, Duncan Alexander was born 13 Jan 1910, and is listed with them in the 1910, 1915, and 1920 census records, living in Tyrol Twp., Griggs, North Dakota.  Duncan died 1 Feb 1924, and was buried in the Cooperstown Cemetery.  Her husband Alex died 26 Nov 1927, and is also buried in the Cooperstown Cemetery.

Margaret moved to Springfield, Massachusetts in 1938, where her sister Janet (Mrs. Janet M. Madsen) lived.  She was a member of the the First Church of Christ Scientist.  She was also a member of the Alice chapter, Order of the Eastern Star, of Fromberg Montana.  Note that either before her marriage to Alex, or after his death, she probably lived in Fromberg, Montana.

Margaret died 4 Aug 1964 in Springfield Massachusetts.  Her funeral was held at the Byron funeral home, Irving G. Wickman conducting a Christian Science rite.  She was buried in the Cooperstown Cemetery, North Dakota, along with her husband and son.
