[*1] Phebe is claimed to be the dau. of Lieut. William Fobes, Joseph Seabury's step-father, but this claim is the result of an imaginary 1st marriage of Lieut. Fobes to Elizabeth Southworth based on erroneous records by the Town clerk of Little Compton, RI. Phebe Smith did not have a first husband surnamed Smith and was not the widow Smith when Joseph Seabury married her. The writer leaves it to others to find the proof.
