Okay, guys, here is what I think is up with Margarette Hawkins/Cheatham.

I believe her to be the same woman. See if you agree...

1880 Newburg Township, Izard County, Arkansas
James WATSON Self M 26
Polina 23 * nee Cheatham?
Tinabell 4
Wesley 2
Joseph CHEATHAM Self M Male W 61 VA Farmer VA VA
Elisabeth CHEATHAM Wife M Female W 40 GA Keeping House TN NC
Robert CHEATHAM Son S Male W 5 AR VA GA
Nancy CHEATHAM Dau S Female W 1 AR VA GA

Robert Cheatham here is Charles Cheatham's father. Sarah Elizabeth (the wife here) was nee Benton. Here is the Benton household in 1870:
1870 Mill Creek, Izard County, Arkansas
101 102 Benton Sarah 65 NC
Amanda 22 GA
Clark Nancy 33 GA
William 14 GA
Carry An 10 GA
Hawkins Elisabeth 28 GA *****Sarah Elizabeth Benton-Hawkins-Cheatham
Townson Marthy 20 GA
Margaret 8 AR *****Margaret Hawkins-(Cheatham)-Byler
Sarah 1 AR

I believe that 8 year-old Margaret here is Margaret Hawkins - that the confusion comes in after her mother married Joseph Cheatham...

Margaret of this household would be the right age to be Margaret w/o John L Byler in 1880:
1880 Newburg, Izard County, Arkansas
13 13 Byler John Head 23 AR TN TN
Margaret Wife 18 AR GA GA
Thomas Son 4m (Feb) AR AR AR
Alexander Boarder 17

Does that make sense to you guys?
