Hello its me Rob Larabee.
The spelling of the Larabee name with one or two 'r's seems to go back and forth throughout time. Greenfield spelled it with two but six generations later (1774) they dropped one of the 'r's only to skip a generation (1814) to pick it up again, skip a generation and drop it, and so on. My father, Charles Artemus, spelled it with one but all of my siblings spell it with two. It seems to only be a matter of preference.
As far as William goes in my research, Greenfield had a brother named William who came to CT from Bigbury Parish, Devonshire County England between 1620 and 1650.
I'm sure we are related and would be interested in comparing where our relations meet.

I live in McIndoe Falls, VT.
