MARGARET SHOFNER: From my research Margaret Shofner was born 13 February, 1779. Most records list her as the first child of Martin Shofner(3 dec 1758 to 30 Sep 1838) and Catherine Cooke Roundtree(27 May 1762 to 14 Jun 1823). They were married 7 Jul, 1780 in N.C. Martin's first wife, however, was Catherine Gilbert. Although I can't 100% vouch for the date of Margaret's birth, I believe that she was really the daughter of Catherine Gilbert, since Martin and Catherine were married a year later and there is a big 4 year gap between Margaret and the next child, Dorothea Turley Shofner (b. 2 Feb 1783).The remaining 8 children are: John, Christopher, Eve, Frederick,Sarah, Polly,Lizzie and Austin. So I think that Margaret's birth mother died in childbirth and she was raised as Catherine Cook Roundtree's chid with Martin Shofner.
