Biography

Margaret Ann Moggach, also known as Maggie, was born on 9 August 1897 at Anderson's Wards, Grange, Banffshire, Scotland. She was the first child of Alexander Moggach (1855-1940) and his wife, Jane (Jeannie) Gordon (1876-1950). Margaret was the mother of Elma Moggach (1920-2014) and three more children followed after she married James Thomson (1895-1937): Bessie Thomson (1922-2016), James George Thomson (1924-2001) and Jean McKenzie Thomson (1926-1980). Margaret was widowed in 1937 at the age of 39 years. She may have had a fifth child, Ian Moggach Thomson or Boyd (1939-2013), although the author has been unable to verify this conclusively. Margaret married Hector Henderson (1910-1999) in 1946 when she was 48 years old. She died on 1 February 1991 at Roebank in Grange. She is interred in Grange Cemetery with Hector. Her first husband, James, rests in a different plot in the same cemetery.
