  1. I'd say the two different women are the one with and without the eyeglasses. The teeth pattern of 1943 Marguerite and 1979 are different to me, and well all the early Marguerite's are of a woman dressed in a highly fashionable way.

  2. These are 2 different women. I wonder what happened to the first one? Did she die or was her role over?

  4. There was one and only one Marguerite and one LHO:
