Biography

Jonathan Smith married "Mrs. Abigail Stratton" on August 30, 1738 in Waltham, Massachusetts.[1]

Based on this record, it would appear Stratton is the name of her first husband and possibly is not her last name at birth.

I don't see how it's possible that the wife of Jonathan Smith, whom she married in 1738, could be the daughter of Ebenezer & Lydia (Fuller) Stratton. Their daughter Abigail died in 1736, and her death record is explicit.

You mention that "it would appear Stratton is the name of her first husband and possibly is not her last name at birth." I used AmericanAncestors.com to pull up all the marriages in Waltham 1737-1739, and about 80% the women named in that time period were designated as "Mrs." (or Mistress), so Stratton could very well be her maiden name instead of a married name.
