Abigail Cobb Hadlock Spurling (1808-1874) married William Pitt Preble (1811-1905) in 1839 after her first husband, Samuel Spurling, died at sea in 1837.

This photograph may have been taken on their wedding day. She brought five Spurling children to her second marriage, and had four more children with Preble.

As the first president of the Cranberry Isles Benevolent Sewing Circle, she secured funds for construction of the island's first church in 1866.
