Treasure Chest Thursday - a Hildreth+Newton Marriage Record

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - time to share another genealogy jewel from my collection of stuff.

This week, it is the Marriage Certificate of Edward Hildreth (1831-1899) and Sophia Newton (1834-1923) in Northborough, Middlesex County, Massachusetts on 25 December 1852:

This is the original source (record copy), primary information and direct evidence record that I have for the marriage of my great-great-grandparents Edward Hildreth and Sophia Newton.
Unfortunately, it does not list their birth dates (only their ages), Edward's parents names or Sophia's mother's name. It does list Sophia's father's name as Thomas Newton. It also states that Edward was born in Townsend MA and Sophia was born in Vermont (all of those are, of course, secondary information items).
