Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 206: Death Record for Abigail (Pierce) Knowlton
It's Treasure Chest Thursday - time to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings.
The treasure today is the Death Record for Abigail Knowlton (1750-1776) in Lincoln, Massachusetts:
The page from the Lincoln, Massachusetts town records book says:
"Abigail Knowlton, wife of Jeremiah Knowlton, Departed this life February ye 2d A./D. 1776"
The source citation for this entry in the Lincoln town record book is:
Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988, digital images, Ancestry.com (http://www.ancestry.com), "Lincoln Births, Marriages and Deaths," Page 97 (penned) (image 226 of 1092), Abigail Knowlton death entry.
Abigail Knowlton is my 5th great-grandmother, and mother of Abigail Knowlton (1774-1855), who married Nathan Gates in 1790 in Westminster, Massachusetts. The birth record for Abigail (Knowlton) Gates in 1774, and the birth record for her sister, Lydia Knowlton in 1773, is on the same page of the Lincoln town records, the two items above the death record for Abigail (Pierce) Knowlton.
