On the eve of the Civil War, Margaret married Willie N. Strayhorn, also of Orange County, NC. Willie N. Strayhorn was a successful farmer. Little else is known about the couple after 1860. According to Civil War records, a Willie N. Strayhorn, enlisted in the C.S.A. in 1861, and worked his way through the ranks, eventually becoming a sergeant. He was fatally wounded in 1865. If this William Strayhorn was Margaret's husband, it is possible that she remarried, thus vanishing from records as "Margaret Strayhorn." 
Margaret Douglas was born c. 1842.
