The only info I have for her is from her father's obituary where it says that he left his nine month old daughter. However, Jean Carter says her name was Margaret. And from other information in other Ancestry trees, I have confirmed her name and date of birth, and as well have added her middle name. She seems to have become a US citizen. I say that based on her SSDI record which has her death registered at the US consulate in Halifax Nova Scotia.

Originally the only info I had as to her existence and year of birth came from Jean Carter. But then I found her arriving with her mother in Canada in 1919 when she was one month old.

The death of Mrs. James A. Dunn, 9848 86th Ave, the place suddenly after a few days illness on Christmas Day. Until a couple of days before her death Mrs. Dunn had been giving her services in nursing influenza patients and had been on several cases throughout the city. On Monday she returned to her home with an attack of what the doctors pronounced to be laryngitis but pneumonia developed later and resulted fatally early on Wednesday morning. She leaves her husband to mourn her loss and a sister, Mrs. Douglas, who was with her at the time of her death.
The funeral will be held on Friday morning at 11 o'clock from Wainwright and Jackson's Undertaking parlours to Mount Pleasant Cemetery.

She is likely the cousin Sarah in the 1851 Cherington census living with William Timms. Her baptism date fits with her age in that census. It does not look as if she married. She died as an inmate of an insane asylum. In 1861, she was living with her sister Emma, who had married Thomas Slatter..
