Little definite is known regarding the life of Phebe Moulthrop. She was the youngest daughter of Samuel and Sarah Barnes Moulthrop and was born October 15, 1711, in East Haven Township, New Haven County, Connecticut. Her father died when she was less than two years old and her mother subsequently remarried. Phebe Moulthrop married Joseph Perkins in February following her seventeenth birthday. Ten children have been attributed to them. It is known that two of their sons, Timothy and Joseph, Jr., and possibly two daughters, Tryphena and Charity, migrated from Connecticut to North Carolina in the 1770's. Accordingly, some researchers have thought that Joseph, Sr., and Phebe Moulthrop Perkins also went with them. Although possible, since no probate records have been found in Connecticut for either Joseph or Phebe Perkins, such a migration seems unlikely since they would have been quite advanced in age at that time.Source Citations:
