Narrative

A good fit for Margaret would be the family of John Ramsy and Margaret Penman, but I have no proof of this, other than a DNA link between one of her descendants and me that fits with her being John and Margaret's daughter. She would also fit with the family of Donald Ramsay and Marie Cannon. Another tree says her parents were Malcolm and Margaret Murphy, but their daughter Margaret married George Montgomery, and then George Murray.

Margaret Ramsay and Henry Folland were married in the Church of England in St. Eleanors. Witnesses were James Glover and Frederick Cannon.

Margaret was a widow in the 1881 and 1891 census, living with her son Horatio and daughter Mary Ann. In 1881, Mary Ramsay age 55 was also in the household.

On the 1891 census, Margaret said both of her parents were born on the Island. If she was correct, that rules out one of the Ramsays born in Scotland as her father.
