Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 251: 1777 Marriage Record of Zachariah Hildreth and Elizabeth Keyes in Townsend, Mass.
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 1777 marriage record of Zachariah Hildreth (1754-1828) and his first wife, Elizabeth Keyes (1759-1793) in Townsend, Massachusetts:
The snippet for the Hildreth-Keyes marriage is on the right-hand page:
