Margaret Muir COLDSTREAM1

(1867 - 1919)
Father*William COLDSTREAM1 b. 1841, d. 1929
Mother*Fanny Caroline George ANSON1 b. 1846
Margaret Muir COLDSTREAM was born on 21 April 1867 in Dhurmsala, Punjab, Bengal,2,1 and was baptised on 16 June 1867 in Dhurmsala.3

She married Thomas Wistar BROWN circa 1890.4

She was listed in the 1900 US census at 5255 Tennantown Ave in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with her husband Thomas; he claimed he was a janitor who hadn't worked for 7 months - this appears to be either a listing mistake by the enumerator, or a joke on Brown's part. Their children Margaret, Moses, Frances and William were listed as living with them.2

She was listed in the 1910 US census at 208 Wesley Ave in Ocean City, Cape May, New Jersey, with her husband Thomas; he gave an occupation of 'none'. Their children Roda and Lida were listed as living with them.5

She died on 14 May 1919 in Atlantic City, New Jersey, at age 52.4

Alison was divorced from Clarence John WHITE at Melbourne, Victoria, in August 1915.5
