Chester MM Minutes:

"30/4/1735: Margaret Paschall, dau of Thomas Paschall, reported married out by a priest to William Mather, not of the Society, and was with child before marriage."

29/6/1743: Margaret Mather, now Watson, reported for marrying by a priest, it being the second offense. [Annotation: Married July 24, 1743, at Christ Church, Philadelphia]

26/7/1743: Margaret Mather, widow of William Mather, married Thomas Watson, not of the Society.

Thomas Watson's death notice was 2/17/1753, at Christ Church, Philadelphia.

Margaret married 3) Daniel Lewis.

Union County did not exist in 1741. Margaret apparently lived in Philadelphia until at least 1753. Northumberland County was opened for settlement in 1762, by which time Margaret was married to Daniel Lewis. Some information on him can be found in The Annals of Buffalo Valley.

Let me know if you find anything else,
