For most of her married life, Margaret Morrison called Wilmot, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, Canada her home.  This Wilmot home is registered as being built by her husband Daniel Morrison, but she most likely has some input into it's design.   The above pictures were taken in October 2003.   It still matches closely the description on the Inventory Site Form (see page for Daniel Morrison).  Below pictures taken January 10, 2006.
Notes for Margaret Campbell
  • The 1861 Wilmot Census stated Daniel Morrison's family consisted of 5 males and 3 females. Females would have been wife Margaret Campbell and daughter Eliza and the daughter who would become Mrs. Stewart of Jeanerette, Louisiana while the males would be father Daniel and sons William Sommerville plus three males unaccounted for and not mentioned in Eliza Morrison's obituary . 5


  • Her great-grandaughter, through grandson Frank Sifford Morrison, was named after her - Margaret Campbell Morrison (married Leslie Bryan) was known by her nicknamed "Peggy"
