Margaret Yates was born about 1780 in Baltimore. According to the book Revolutionary Patriots of Baltimoretown 1775-1783 by Henry C. Peden Jr., her father was Thomas Yates and her mother, Mary Myers.

The book also states that Margaret married Jacob Walsh. The Baltimore Federal Gazette reported on Saturday, June 26, 1802 that "Jacob Walsh Jr. married at Springfield on Thursday evening by Rev. Mr. Bend. Jacob Walsh Jr., merchant to Margaret Yates daughter of Thomas Yates, Esq. All of this city."

Jacob and Margaret Walsh had at least 4 children who were christened at St. Paul's Episcopal church:  re Maryland Birth & Christenings Index, 1662-1911 They were:
1. Mary Walsh, born March 22, 1803, christened June 26, 1803 she probably died before 1816.  see #4
2.  Elizabeth Ann 
re 1850 census, Baltimore page 196b she was born in 1807, christened Jan 2, 1810, a note on stated that she wed  Archibald Stirling.  He served as President of the Baltimore Savings Bank
3.  Thomas Yates - a biography held in the Baltimore Historical Society states he was born 1809 - died 1865. He was also christened on Jan 2, 1810.  Find A Grave adds  death date as Jan 20, 1865. T. Yates Walsh was a Baltimore lawyer and served as US. Representative from 1851-1853.
5.  William Henry Myers Walsh, born Feb. 18, 1820, christened March 18, 1820. Williams's first son was named Thomas Yates.  and the  biography of  T. Yeates Walsh, attorney at law names Wm. H. Walsh as a younger brother and His father was named Jacob Walsh "one time opulent merchant. but suffered business reverses.
4   Another daughter was found via her obituary in the Baltimore Sun, dated Oct. 19, 1888.  Mary Atkinson Yates Penniman, widow of Augustus Penniman, died,,,,,It went on to state she was daughter of Jacob Walsh, sister to T. Yates Walsh and Mrs. Stirling.  So she belongs to our family.  She was born in 1816.  So the questions are, did the first daughter Mary die, and this was the 2nd and where does the name Atkinson come from?

It is not known when Margaret died.  She was listed on an 1821 deed.  One Ancestry tree lists her death year as 1824, but gives no source.  Find  A Grave states that her husband is buried in Old Saint Paul's cemetery.  She probably is also.
