Source:The Libby family in America, 1602-1881 (179368), p. 42, names Philip's wife as Sally Smith. Source:Biographical review : this volume contains biographical sketches of leading citizens of Cumberland County, Maine, p. 496, and Source:The history of Gorham , Maine, p. 608, both further identify her as Sally Smith of Berwick.

A posting on rootsweb is "looking for the parents of Sally Smith born in Berwick about 1743. She married Philip Larrabee of Scarborough. Sally died August 22, 1823 in Scarborough." A reply to the posting suggests "I cannot find a Sally Smith born in the Berwicks or Kittery near 1743. However, there was a Sarah Smith, daughter of Charles and Rebekah Smith born Feb 16, 1747 ( 1744 crossed out ) in Kittery."

Despite the calculated birth date of 1743, this is an attractive alternative, given Philip's birth in 1744, but needs confirmation to make sure this is the right person. --Jrich 14:32, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
