@ Margaret Stuart was born in1569 and she was supposed to be the mother of Johan Jerg Georg Wilheit in 1580? I do not think the ages match up. She was to have gotten married at age 10 and then again to a Mr. Hay in 1580 and died in 1586 at 17. How do we account for the ages? This appears to be a broken link between my family, the Jones' and the Stewarts or Stuarts.

Don, I don't know the specifics for these people - but I can tell you that women often married at 12 or 13 then, so 11 might not be that far off the norm...
Actually, I don't think that Margaret Stewart (Stuart), Countess of Errol, was married to either Geor Willheit. Either this claim is entirely bogus or it's a completely different Margaret Stewart. The Peerage and Wikipedia both have her marrying Francis Hay without any mention of a Willheit.
