In the 1891 census, at Wellington Street Infirmary, Kilmarnock, a patient called Margaret Quigley was recorded. She was married, aged 27 years, a miner's wife and was born in Galston in Ayrshire. Given all the circumstances it seems very likely that that young patient was John Quigley's wife, formerly Margaret McNamara, the mother of Michael and Catherine staying at their grandparents' house.

The 1901 census entry for 8 Chapel Lane Galston recorded Margaret living there with her husband and family of seven children. She was recorded as aged 37 years. 3
