While many compilers indicate that Samuel Cheeseborough's wife was Abigail Ingraham, The Great Migration Begins indicates that there is no evidence that her surname was Ingraham, or that an Abigail Ingraham existed in the area at that time. Thus, identifying her as Abigail Ingraham, daughter of Richard Ingraham, is tentative at best.[1]

    'SAMUEL, bp. 1 April 1627; m. Stonington 30 November 1655 Abigail _____ [Minor Diary 16]. (Many secondary sources give the bride's surname as Ingraham, but the evidence for this is not seen. The only Ingraham family to which she could belong is that of Richard Ingraham of Rehoboth. He is of the right age and in the right place to be father of Samuel's wife, but this Ingraham family is very poorly defined, and only sons are known for certain [TAG 19:78, 21:190-91, 22:60-61].)'
