Hi Wendy,

this looks like him.

1920 PORTLAND WARD 9, CUMBERLAND, MAINE
U.S. MARINE HOSPITAL
LARRABEE

Alfred H., age 38, patient, paper maker, paper mill, born ME both parents born ME
he is shown as single so maybe he and Edith had divorced

Name:       Alfred H Larrabee
Birthyear:       abt 1880
Birthplace:       M'e
Enlistment Age:       18 4/12

It shows he was born in Westbrook, Maine
Year of enlistment in 1898 so perhaps he was on duty in Australia when he met and married Edith ?

Here is a marriage for him

In image (at familysearch.org) this is listed as Alfred's third marriage and Julia's first. He is listed as a widower but if Edith had remarried that would be wrong.
and another

Alfred's mother is shown as deceased ( you can see image of record at familysearch.org) His bride Mattie is shown as school girl !

1900 - 9TH INFANTRY, PHILIPPINE ISLANDS, MILITARY AND NAVAL FORCES
LARRABEE
Alfred H., age 19, private, born Westbrook, Wisconsin

I think this is likely him and wrong state of birth as town of birth agrees with enlistment

So it looks like he was married once before marriage to Edith and once after.

1945 Florida State census
LARRABEE
Alfred H., age 63, retired, born Maine

Julia, age 60, housewife, born Florida

*******************
I didn't find him in 1930 census either - I looked under his name and under Julia

I took a look at the passenger list you mentioned and I am sure they re your couple and they are going to Westbrook, Maine which matches with his home.

I could not find either of them in 1910 census.
