About Abigail Corning

Biography

Abigail Waldron's marriage record states that she was from Wenham, Essex, Massachusetts and based on the date of marriage should would have been born about 1690 which means that either John Waldron/Walden or Nathaniel Waldron/Walden would have been her father. She died young so she was no mentioned in probate records. As far as I know the identity of her parents is speculative.

Daniel Corning was born on Sep. 17, 1686 to Samuel Corning and Hannah Batchelder[1] He was baptized on Oct. 24, 1686 at the First Church in Beverly, Massachusetts.[2]

Daniel Corning married first to Abigail Waldron (1690 - 1714) on 29 Oct 1710 in Beverly, Essex, Massachusetts.[3] They had two children:

She died on 10 Oct 1714 "____, w. Dan[iel], Oct. 10 1714. C.R.1."[7]

Daniel Corning married second to Susanna Burnham (1693 - 1752) on 12 Dec 1715 in Beverly, Essex, Massachusetts.[8] She was the daughter of Thomas Burnham and Hester Cogswell.
