According to family records, Abigail Irene Edgerton married William Parker and “moved west” (possibly to Wisconsin), after which there was no further word from her.  Abigail had already died by February 16, 1867, at which time the final settlement of Whiting’s estate included a bequest to, “Sophronia E. Carpenter a child of Abigail I. Parker, deceased, who was a daughter of the said deceased, residing in Wisconsin.”

 

The Latter Day Saints’ International Genealogical Index references a Sophronia Parker who married David Carpenter in Nelson, Madison County, New York in 1847.  This may have been the daughter of William and Abigail (Edgerton) Parker who was mentioned in the estate of Whiting Edgerton.  There were three “William Parkers” recorded in the 1850 Federal Census of Madison County – one in Eaton (pg. 341), one in Lenox (pg. 217), and one in Madison (pg. 14).  At the time of the 1860 Federal Census, David and Sophronia Carpenter were enumerated in Darlington, Lafayette County, Wisconsin (pg. 347; dwelling #340; family #340; enum. July 25, 1860); they were aged 42 and 34 respectively (both b. in New York) and had two daughter, Sarah and Cora.
