Subject: Abigail T. Smith, b. Chatham around 1829-1832, married 1850 to Linus E. Griffing

I've been trying to figure out either out the parents of either of these people for a while, with little luck (Linus was appointed a guardian when he was 15, so not holding my breath there).

Abigail should be easier, but so far I haven't been able to figure her this point, I'm digging through old probate court records looking for a name drop.

Anyone have a guess? Possible red herring: looked at Linus's paperwork from 1844 and his guardian was almost an Ebenezer S. There was an Ebenezer Smith in Chatham, though he didn't seem to have a daughter named Abigail....
