Many secondary sources give the bride's surname as Ingraham, but the evidence for this is not absolute. 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.
