[I don't know who this Maggie Hankard is. She might be John's daughter Mary, who also is enumerated in her brother John's household for 1880. I didn't find a birth record for a Margaret Hankard with parents John and Anastasia. There is a Margaret Hankard born about 1866, whose family lived in Marlboro, MA.]
