Friday, March 25, 2016 Margaret Caswell (1907-1992)

Margaret Caswell was born on 10 January 1907 in Novinger, Missouri, to Robert Caswell and Margaret "Maggie" Muir. Her father was a coal miner. Between 1922 and 1928 her family moved to Tilton, Illinois, a village in Danville, Township. I do not know for sure if Margaret moved to Illinois as she was not enumerated with them in the 1930 census.

Margaret was a woman of mystery. I have been unable to find her in the 1930 and 1940 census records.

Margaret applied for and received a Social Security account in Maryland sometime before 1951.

On 26 October 1953 she married Harold A. Sivesind in Seattle, Washington. They both lived in Kodiak, Alaska, and both had been married previously; Margaret to a man named Mr. McLaughlin. I do not know if they had children, where they lived, or what type of job Mr. McLaughlin held.

Margaret's husband, Harold, died in 1985 in Pasco County, Florida. Margaret died in August 1992 but I believe not in Florida. Her last place of residence filed with the Social Security Administration was Plant City, Florida, and her name was Margaret Sivesind. Seven women born in 1907 named Margaret died in Florida in August 1992, but none of them had the correct date of birth. Removing the year of birth from the search criteria, I discovered there were over a hundred women named Margaret who died in Florida in August 1992. None of them had 10 January as the day and month of birth.
