    • Maggie's mother died when Maggie was two years old. Her father died when she was eleven. She reported in her letters in 1959 that she was brought up at her grandfather Simpson's place, a few miles from Mullaghinch. She was reared by a spinster aunt, Margaret Simpson. Her grandfather, John Simpson was bom ca 1818 and died in 1902, and his place was sold. At that point, the two Margarets went to England to live for a year. They returned to Portrush on the north coast of Ireland where Aunt Margaret kept a boarding house. Maggie remembered the beauty there especially when she returned for a visit after living in New York City.
