Research Notes (source comments, unreliable information)

Suggested dates for Margaret's birth include Dec 1796, County Armagh, Ireland and 1797, Ireland, and for her death, perhaps 7 Sep 1873.

There have been many immigrants to the U.S. named Margaret McBride. I've found a ship's registry entry for one individual that is close to known information. The record shows an individual of that name who was 25 years old when she arrived in Charleston, SC on 20 Nov 1820. However, this would put her birthday before 20 Nov 1795. She was a passenger on the Monarch from Greenock, Scotland.

There are several Spear children listed in the household of Robert and Margaret in 1850.
