Mothers name came from upload.  16:38: Tom Rhodes imported the data for Mary Elizabeth (Sidwell) Abraham (bef.1690-1747)

Just when you think you have it all figured out...I just got a new hint for Henry the Grandfather which would indicate he was married to Sidwell Richards rather than Marha Eva Sidwell:

https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/199959728/henry-abraham  

https://www.cornwall-opc-database.org/search-database/more-info/?t=marriages&id=441170

An uploaded and unsourced gedcom is not a sufficient source. We need to find better source for the identification of the mother. 

The marriage source on the attached father's profile only offers a surname of "Abraham" for the groom and "Sidwell" as the first name of the bride. That second doesn't seem right. It's an index. Ideally, we find the original to see what it actually says. If the last link you provided is the original, all we see is the surname Abraham. Nothing else is legible.

I'm not at all a fan of find a grave for anything other than the information carved into a contemporaneous stone, but the Sidwell first name does match the index.
I wouldn't blink nowadays at Sidwell as a first name for an American girl, but in that time period it would be very, very unusual for a girl's first name.
I saw others with that Sidwell as a first name as I was searching, there were probably not too many though.

I wonder if it was a transcription error when the index was being created. Do you find Sidwell as a first name when looking at the images of the originals?
If you enter Sidwell as first name and no last name in search, there are quite a few that come up.

Jillaine and Tanya, thanks for the work you have done.  I'll dig in to this profile and resolve the protection issue, hopefully over the next few days.

I have added the Pennsylvania project box to the profile, with the United States project account as a profile manager. Pennsylvania may not be the single best fit, but the best documentation for him seems to be related to Pennsylvania.
Thanks both of you.
