Margaret lived to a great age, as a wealthy widow, with apparently no issue.
She is listed in 1901 census on Church St, Newcastle West. She is widow, "retired farmer". She has one servant. Age given as only 68 but this cannot be true.
Her will dated 1902.
She is described as of Newcastle West at death.
She died 1903, age 87 yrs, or possibly 94 yrs.
She was bur Cussen family vault, Knockpatrick, Co.Limerick.
See funeral report in Limerick Chronicle, 12 Feb 1903.
She was very wealthy (estate of £2600) and there was a dispute about her will. The will was disputed by her nephew Richard McCoy, who said she was not of sound mind, and gave evidence of her eccentricity, such as wanting to bless the cows. Others gave evidence of eccentricity. But the jury decided that she was of sound mind.
Funeral list of Margaret Nolan, 1903, shows many relationships in the Nolan and Donovan families.
