Myra COBB is Margaret's mother; Henry and Daniel are Margaret's brothers.

4.  1870 Census Index/Images (online at Genealogy.com; Image #4 of 246):  Philadelphia P.O., Philadelphia (Ward 1, District 2), Philadelphia Co., PA, Roll 1387, p. 453B, PN 14, 30/30, enumerated 2 Jun 1870, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1870 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Park Wm R 39 M W Engineer 5000 300 Penna
____ Margaret 38 F W Keeping house     Penna
____ Mira 19 F W at home     Penna
Cobb Mira 36 F W at home     Penna
Is Mira COBB's age correct?  If so, she would be Margaret's unmarried sister, not her mother.  I'm more inclined to think the enumerator erred (Myra should be 56, not 36), especially as no younger Myra is present in 1860.
