Margaret Ross McRae was born born 7/18/1891 in 14 Rose Street, Lochee, Dundee, Forfarshire (now Angus), Scotland, and was named Maggie McCulloch Ross by her parents Donald Ross and Jesse Mae Hollis. Margaret's known sisters were Mary Jane, born 1886; Jessie Hollis, born 1888; Magdeline Carnegie, born 1890; Dorothy Georgia, born 1894, and Elizabeth Blackburn, born 1895. I found no other information about her, except for three items. One was a border crossing from Canada into the U.S. registration dated 8/1923 for my grandmother Dorothy Georgina Ross Rock mentioned her sister Mrs. Margaret McRae lived at 8th Avenue and Scott Street in Vancouver, British Columbia. The second was a Caliifornia passenger list for the ship Erria dated 6/9/1938 indicated Margaret Ross McRae, age 45 years, 10 months, arrived at San Pedro, California, having departed from New Westminster, British Columbia. The third was information that Margaret Ross McRae died on 5/5/1983 in North Vancouver, British Columbia. I wish to find more information on Margaret Ross McRae in order to find out more about my grandmother Dorothy Georgina Ross Rock. Any information or suggestions as to where to look for more information would be appreciated.

Further to the above information, Margaret Ross married Peter McRae. He was born about 1890 in Inverness or Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Peter was in Inverness, Scotland, about 1905, perhaps in military school or in the military. Before 1911, he came to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It is not known if he married Margaret in Canada or Scotland. They had two sons Donald and John born in 1911 and 1912. Peter was a fireman with the Winnipeg Fire Department and died 6/1915 in the line of duty. Any information would be appreciated.
