See Moshe Flam's full assessment of family with all sources linked from here:

Sheindel Shtengen Margulios was the first wife of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Shtengen. His children decided to call the family with her family name after the pogrom in Permisla (Premishlan, today radio active from the Chernobyl "accident")

Her father was Rabbi Shmuel Margulias (the man who gave the Heter Chema for young kids - to eat butter)

Her mother was Yutta Margulias (cousin of sorts) - daughter of Rabbi Yaakov Margulias Chief Judge of Eisenstadt.
