    Notes 
    • Margaret is documented only in the settlement of Joseph Guin's estate, where she is not identified as his daughter, but is listed as an equal heir with his known children Hezekiah, Thomas, and John, and she is listed as Margaret Lowers. The only Margaret Lowers in Wood co in 1850 is married to Mathias, so I assume this is her. Marriage record indexed at ancestry.com as Grim.
