Narrative

All Margaret's US records said she was born in the Irish Free State, her son Thomas' death certificate going so far as to say she was born in Dublin. Her daughter Sadie was the informant. She also said on that record that Margaret's husband James McGuire was born in Dublin. Interestingly their 1910 census said that James' native language, and that of his parents, was Irish, but Margaret's was English, though both were born in Ireland. Their 1920 census says Irish for both of them.
My guess, only a guess, is that James and Margaret met in Dublin and were married there.
