      In the 1860 census Margaret is listed in Township 14 Range 11 in Calhoun County, Alabama in the household of her son, Benjamin, and his family. Her sons, George and Benjamin, both served as appraisers of the estate of James McCormack in 1855 in Benton County which was renamed Calhoun in 1858.Margaret joined the Bethlehem Baptist Church on May 28, 1843. The church is located near Felton, Georgia in what is now Haralson County. Jacob and Margaret moved to Georgia from their home in Moore County, North Carolina before 1837 and are listed in the 1837 Georgia State Census with 7 total persons in the household and in the 1840 census of Paulding County, Georgia.
      They settled in what is now Haralson and were living in the region when he Cherokee Indians still occupied the region. The Cherokees were removed in the "Trail of Tears" in 1838 and in the Mounted Volunteers in Captain Witcher's Company from Paulding County was George Cagle. The Indians were assembled near Munroe Bridge on Munroe Road near the Cagle homestead and the area where Duncan Monroe and wife, Elizabeth Phillips settled in the northwest corner of what is now Haralson County.
      In September 1839 Jacob and Margaret wrote to Cornelius Dunlap in Moore County, North Carolina concerning the death of Benjamin Dunlap, brother of Margaret. The letter was addressed to Mr. Cornelius Dunlap, Brower's Mill, Moore County, State of North Carolina. The letter is transcribed with the same spelling and punctuation as in the original as follows:
      "8th September 1839
      Carroll County
      Dear brother and sister I now take up my pen to write you a few loins hoping and trusting through devine mercies when those few loins comes to hand they may find you and family and the famiy connection all in good health - Those loins leave myself and family all in good health we are thankful to say that we have all enjoyed prety good health since we have been in the western country. we are some what astonished that you have never wrote to us before now for we have been looking for answers to the one I wrote to you previous as we understood you recin it. I recin a letter a few days back stating that Benjamin Dunlap had departed this life the letter had no signature to it but from the discourse of it we suppose it came from Isaac Jones but from the way he wrote it give but little satisfaction as he did not state when Dunlap died or how he had left his affairs or whether his Estate had become due or not Only that there was something coming to us and for me to come after it this fall - now agreeable to his statement I am a little at a loss to know whether to come for that purpose or not as I have but little money to throw away at this time for uncertainties I have not long since purchased 2 lots of land one I gave $120.00 & the other I am to give $105.00 which I am to make payment for by christmas -
      I have had a thought of coming in that country this fall if I do I shall be there from the 1st to the 10th of November I will now state to you something about our crops we have made fine crops in our section of country both of corn and wheat we have had a very dry summer and spring but we have had small showers enough in corn making time to make it generally good - I cannot tell exactly what corn will be worth but I would say not higher than $3.00 pr. barrel wheat can be had in a bundance from 50 cts. to 621/2 cts pr. bushel as to cotton try to make but very little of it as our country is new and people generally has not more land open than they wish to cultivate in wheat corn and oats - The health of our country at this time is very good I hear of no person having any thing like the chills and fever or any of this kind of sickness We must tell you that myself and family are all well satisfied with our move to this country - I have some good land if I had enough of it open what I have open if you were to see the corn now on it I think you would quit those sand hills - but my notion is I wish evey man that was to move to go & see and suit himself if he can then he has no person to find fault of but himself should he be not satisfied - I do not know that I have anything more worthy of your attention more than I shall look for an answer to this as soon as possible which I request you to do state to me the times in that country how brother Dunlap left his Estate - we all wish to be remembered to all kindred and friends and particularly my wife sends her best love to her mother if she be living when you write to me Direct your letter State of Georgia, Paulding County Cedar Town P. O. as I live in Paulding and the post office more handy than the Tallapoosa P. O. I remain ever loving brother with due respect till Death
      Jacob & Margaret Cagle
      To Cornelius Dunlap"
