Is there an actual marriage document for Abner Libby-Anna Harding?

While there is ample documentation in genealogy journals and books, I have not been able to find any actual marriage document for Anna Harding (Harding-4969) and Abner Libby (Libby-1668). The literature even provides a specific date of 15 Nov 1789 without a location. It's pretty clear this occurred in Maine, likely Scarborough, but my searches in AmericanAncestors and FamilySearch have yielded nothing. There are marriage documents for Anna's siblings but nothing for her. Since she is a Mayflower descendant, documentation is crucial if available. Has anyone plowed this ground before? Do you have any suggestions? Thanks.
