    Biography Notes
    • Although Margaret's date of birth is shown in various records and registered as stated and her marriage certificate of 1884 gives her age as 17, she was in fact, only 15, so no wonder her parents were so against it. She must have met her husband after the family moved from Strathalbyn to Collins near Redhill in the north in 1878.

      MARRIAGE: to «b»Thomas Power«/b», a horse breaker, on 12/8/1884 at St. Bartholomew's, Norwood.

      His work must have caused them to move about a good deal and no fixed address has been found in any Directory.

      Margaret married twice.

      DEATH: of Thomas Power c. 1892 -

      Remarriage c. 1893 to «b»Henry Gifford«/b».. There has been mentioned "further children", but there appears to have been only one, another daughter (Elizabeth Gifford).

      DEATH: of Margaret Power/Gifford at Claremont, W.A. on 19/3/1906 aged 37 years - of a stroke. interred at Karrakatta Cemetery.
