The Nobles were of Scottish descent who settled in Ireland some five centuries before. His words made an impression on her mind. From the very beginning, Margaret was a very zealous child, who was always full of energy and enthusiasm. While she spent her early years with her grandmother in Dungannon, she moved to England to be with her family when her father was employed as a minister there. Even at the age of eight, Margaret had the realization that religion is not about having belief in the doctrines, but it is about searching for the divine light that will bring enlightenment.
