The marriage record of their daughter Elizabeth gives Margaret's maiden name as Davis, her birth place as Exeter. This source confirms her surname, and says that she was the daughter of Isaac and Margaret (Davis) Davis of Exeter.

Thanks so much Chris. One further question: are you able to find out where Sumner and Margaret Chadbourne are buried. I believe he died in 1902. I don't know about her.

They are buried in Forest Grove Cemetery, on Winthrop Street in Augusta. The listing I have reads:

Chadbourne, Sumner J. 28 July 1830-1 Oct 1902 [Lot 218]
Margaret H., his wife 5 Jan 1830-10 Feb 1911

Another "thank you." It appears that Margaret is a full or half sister to my 2x great grandfather, Calvin T. Corson Towle. His father was Ebenezer Corson (the Towle family raised him and he legally took the name at age 23). Margaret may have been born a Corson and was raised by the Isaac Davis family (her mother's brother, suggesting a first earlier wife of Ebenezer Corson). Am on the track of documentation now.
