Surnames: Detamore
I believe Margaret was the daughter of Jacob Detamore, a Hessien soldier (German) hired by the British to fight the colonists in the revolutionary war. Jacob's father was Christian Detamore. I have a couple contacts who know more than I do and will give you their email addresses next communication.
