Margaret Ann Quinn was born in Ireland on March 27, 1837. One source says that it was in County Cork, but we don’t know for sure that this is true. The names of her parents are unknown.

She married James Warner in Toronto on March 26, 1856. They were both eighteen.

They would have ten children, although there is some doubt about whether the first, Martha, was actually theirs. Assuming she was, though, James and Margaret’s children were as follows:

  1. Martha Warner
  2. William James Warner
  3. Robert John Warner
  4. Hannah Maria Warner
  5. Thomas Benson “Tom” Warner
  6. Elizabeth “Daisy” Warner
  7. Sarah “Sadie” Warner
  8. Edward Warner
  9. Ella Warner
  10. Harold Rix “Harry” Warner

She died at her home at 65 Grace Street, in Toronto, on March 29, 1915 (just two days after her 78th birthday) and was buried in Toronto Necropolis Cemetery.

You can visit her grave (virtually) here.
