Maggie's father William married Ellen Patterson on 6 Jun 1883.  Maggie gained three half-siblings from this marriage.  They were David, born 16 Mar 1884, Mary, 3 Jun 1887, and Elisabeth, 23 Mar 1889.  In the 1891 Ceanda census, the family was still living on the same farm.  By the 1901 Canada census, only Martha had left the home.  In the 1906 Canada census of Manitoba, Maggie, 24, was living as a servant with the John Detwiller family in the Hayfield area of Manitoba.  She was a servant.  She married their son, John William Detwiller on 27 Mar 1907 in Brandon, Manitoba.

Family sources report five children from the marriage, including two who died as infants.  In 1935 the family was living in Douglas, Neepawa, Manitoba.  According to the Canada Voters Lists, [John] William was a laborer, and their daughter Edna was a dressmaker.  In 1940, the family was living at 340 Eleventh St., City of Brandon, Manitoba.  John W. was a patrol man, Edna was a dress maker, and Herbert a laborer.

John and Margaret moved to British Columbia about 1947, when he retired.  In 1949, the Canada Voters Lists identify the family living at 1747 East Fifth Street, Vancouver.  J.W. was a stableman, Margaret a housewife, Edna a seamstress, Herbert a mechanic, and Muriel a nurse.  In 1953, John William is listed as retired, and Edna R. as a saleswoman.

John died in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 1954.  Margaret died in New Westminster, British Columbia on 13 Jul 1953.  Her last address was 10268 128 "A" Street, Surrey.  Cause of death was gastro-esophagal hemmorrhage.  She is buried with her husband in the Ocean View Burial Park, Burnaby, British Columbia.
