Born in Willows, Wisconsin, Margaret was the younger sister of Millicent Rawlins.

In the first fourteen years marriage Margaret "Martha" would give birth to seven daughters and one son. On her choice to have eight children, Martha said:

"We are not a religious family. I think family planning is important for everyone. George and I just really love children and chose to have a lot."
