Abigail Whitcomb Gibson
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 13, 1728
Lancaster
Worcester County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Nov. 26, 1808
Grafton
Windham County
Vermont, USA

Her first wife was Nathan Bennett, who died in Leominster, Mass., in 1760. It has been said that her maiden name may have been Darby or Stearns. However I have found proof that she was the daughter of Joseph Whitcomb and Damaris Priest. [Not only was Joseph Whitcomb, along with Abigail, co-executor of Nathan's estate, Nathan and Abigail's son John Bennett chose his grandfather Joseph Whitcomb as his guardian. In 1762 Joseph Whitcomb had also been appointed gaurdian to Abigail's daughter Abigail Bennett, born 1748.]

Abigail married, second, Isaac Gibson.

Note: the lines on her epitaph ("Behold my soul...") are from a hymn.
