When Margaret was baptized in the Olrig parish church, her parents were living on a farm called East Murkle. She was still living in that parish when she married James Dunnet of and in Canisbay parish. James died before the 1841 census was enumerated. Margaret was very likely enumerated with her son Thomas at his croft in Gills, Caithness, and since some of her children's baptisms say they lived in the Gills area of Canisbay parish, it may have been his parents' croft that Thomas lived in.
