In Reply to: Do you have info on Margaret Donalda Dodge White cir. 1890s? by Jane Smith of 667

Jane,
There might not have been a biological relationship between Christena Shaver Dick and Margaret Donalda Dodge White. The bible record of James M. and Christena Shaver Dick was listed in the Stanly Co. Genealogical Journal (Summer 1991, volume 10, number 3, page 490) and contained entries for the seven children of James M. and Christena, all born after 1883. There is no Margaret among them.
Possibilities:
1. Margaret was James M. Dick's daughter by his previous wife, Susan A. Fesperman. I have been unable to find James and his family on the 1880 census to see if he had any children with Susan. Under this possibility, Christena would have been step-grandmother to Margaret's children.
2. Margaret was Christena's daughter from a relationship prior to her marriage to James.
3. Margaret had a close non-biological relationship with Christena and her children called Christena grandmother.
4. Margaret was related to James or Christena via another family member.
Have you looked for an estate/will of James or Christena to find a list of their heirs? Or looked for James and Christena's obits?

Leah
