Given Margaret's age, I doubt the younger children are hers.  The placement of Samuel after Hannah in the 1870 census suggests he is her son, not Margaret's.

Ann is Happy's apparently illegitimate daughter.  Margaret is too old to be the mother of David and Charles.  Are they Hannah's children?  Happy married John William BLOSSER on 6 Jun 1870.
