Margaret & Elise Johnson

Even though Elise gave birth to Margaret, she could not raise her properly on her own. Being a drug addict, it was harder for Elise to be a good mother and look after her daughter. She did not have enough to pay for her drug debts.

In that case, she could not afford a bright and secure future for her daughter. Therefore, her parents began caring for their granddaughter like their own child.

Margaret was also provided the title, "The Annie Oakley of Harlem", a nickname influenced by an incident. She shot a man with a point 357 magnum who tried to rob her handbag and a gold chain in 2006.
