Your Margaret STEPHEN was a generation before mine, unfortunately.
Mine was 18 Aug 1929 and according to my records married a MACKIE in
PETERHEAD in Oct 1851. They must then have emigrated to South Africa
because she was buried in St Peter's cemetery, Cape Town in 1897.
The possibility of a connection exists though. In the same cemetery
there is an Alexander MACKIE! He died in 1936 but there is no record
of a memorial inscription. Have you tried the Durno-Toylor website
which has a lot of STEPHEN material?
