Margaret Canada Watkins 1817 Kentucky

I am seeking information about Margaret Canada Watkins, born in Kentucky? in 1817 who married William Cook McCubbin 15 August 1833.

A note I have from my aunt (now age 87) says that Margaret was age 16 at the age of her marriage to McCubbin and that he was a minister, 20 years old. Her father ran a whiskey still and did not like the idea of her marrying a preacher so he disowned her. They stayed in Kentucky until 1839, then with their 2 children traveled with other family members to Missouri.

My Aunt also notes that through her Aunt she had heard that Margaret's mother and Abe Lincoln's mother were first cousins. I am trying to search this out but any information on Margaret's parents would be helpful.
