A third Benjamin Ingersell - does she have the right husband? Yarmouth ME

In digging into this family in Yarmouth, Maine, I was surprised by the number of Parker/Ingersoll marriages (4) between the two familes (both familes were innkeepers - the same inn?).  The widow Sarah (Ireson) Parker married Ens. Benjamin IngersOll (Ingersoll-182 - 1687 - 1755)(headstone spells it IngersEll).  Mary marries Benjamin IngersOll (Ingersoll-187,  1715 - 1770).  Neither has a headstone there, but there is a headstone for William IngersEll, the son of Ens. Benjamin and Mary.  Skipping the other marriages, there is record (Maine Veteran Cemetery Records) of a third Benjamin IngersEll (1701-1769, grave 29) not mentioned in Corliss and not currently on Wiki-tree.  I wonder if there is some mix-up going on here.

Regards,

Jack Parker
