About John Larrabee

Children Of John, Of Windham:

From Sacco Valley Settlements:

1. John,6 whose wife d. in Windham, Conn., Aug. 15, 1756, aged 60 years. He may have d. at Louisburg in 1746.

Mrs. Hannah Williams, a dau. of Capt. Adam Larrabee, writes: "My father always spoke of his great-grandfather as John Larrabee, and of his wife Hannah who he said sat up nights and spun to earn money to buy the communion service for the old Congregational church in Windham."

This statement, associated with the grave-stone of Hannah from which the foregoing dates were copied, establishes the connection between Greenfield Larrabee, the i st, of Saybrook, and the family of which Ex-Gov. William Larrabee is a living representative, as will further appear.
