My fourth great-grandmother Margaret Cooper, the daughter of Francis Cooper and Sarah Booth of Baildon, West Riding Yorkshire, England was married twice.

First to Walker Ellison on 11 November 1838  in Otley:

Walker died in 1841 while Margaret was pregnant with her second child, Benjamin Walker Ellison. Her oldest child, Mary Maria Ellison was only 2.

On the 13th of August, 1845, Margaret married William Hudson, a bachelor and a maltster in Bradford. A maltster made or dealt in malt for ale.

William and Margaret Hudson had three girls together: Annie born in 1846, Emma born in 1848 and Elizabeth born in 1850 (West Virginia, USA).

Annie went on to marry Enoch Robinson and she died in Boyne Falls, Charlevoix County, Michigan. I have not figured out what happened to Emma and Elizabeth.
