Margaret sailed to the America in 1857 on the ship George Washington. The ship manifest lists her as a "spinster" and no family members accompanied her. She married James Walker in Salt Lake City on 9 October 1857. The 1860 United States Federal Census places her in the household of her husband, James Walker.
Later family accounts claim that she traveled with Phineas Young on his way home from a mission and was planning on marrying him when she arrived in Utah. However, she decided not to marry him. If this account is accurate she would have traveled in the William G. Young Company (1857). There is no roster for this company, so more research needed to confirm this information.
Her death date is confirmed by her death certificate.
