Hi Dianne,
There are enough Benjamin Larabees around for each of us to have several, but I think the one you are looking for is the one mentioned by "paws" above. Wheeler's History of Topsham is available on Ancestry and on Google Books at http://books.google.com/books/about/History_of_Brunswick_Top...
Benjamin is mentioned on p. 790 of the PDF document (p. 759 of the print book) and on p. 894 of the PDF document (p. 841-2 of the print book).

In 1700 Falmouth=Portland in what is now Maine. It was a part of Massachusetts, but not the same as Falmouth on Cape Cod....but you probably knew that.

This is what I have for my Benjamin Larrabee who I believe, but have not proven to be, the Benjamin Wheeler mentions.

Hope this helps. If you have evidence that there are two Benjamins, one born in Falmouth/Maine in 1700 and the other in Malden, MA in 1796/7, I'd be glad to hear about it.
