Margaret Farrell was born on 2nd December 1878 in Dublin, daughter of a tailor named John Farrell and his wife Rosanna Reid. The couple had ten children, but Margaret appears to have been one of only three to survive childhood. Her father John appears to have died some time before 1901, as the census that year finds Margaret with her widowed mother and two siblings. She was still at home at 19 Stephen Street in 1911, and working as a shop assistant in a bakery. She has yet to be traced after 1911, although when her brother William died in 1926, his obituary reports that both William's sisters had recently died too.
