      I believe this is the correct Margaret since her mother is Dorothy Dobson. Margaret's great grandson, by Edward Stephenson and Elizabeth Preston, was named John Dobson Stephenson. Also Margaret's grandson John D. Stephenson's middle name is probably Dobson, but I have not seen any records of that.

      "Spinster" means that Margaret was at least 20 years old ... she was one month shy of 20
