Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 256: 1759 Birth Record of Elizabeth Keyes in Westford, 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  1759 Birth Record of Elisabeth Keyes (1759-1793) in Westford, Massachusetts:

The snippet of the birth record is:

The transcription of this record is:

"Keyes  Elizabeth Keyes Daughter of Jonathan Keyes
and Elisabeth his wife was born April the 8 1759"

The source citation for this record is:

Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988, digital images, ( : accessed 7 December 2012), "Westford, Births, Marriages and Deaths," page 83 (penned, image 48 of 1750), Elizabeth Keyes birth entry.

This appears to be an Original Source document of Westford town records with Primary Information that provides Direct Evidence of the births, marriages and deaths in the 18th century.

Elizabeth Keyes (1759-1793) is my 4th great-grandmother, daughter of Jonathan and Elizabeth (Fletcher) Keyes, and was married to Zachariah Hildreth (1754-1820).  She had nine children, but only five of them reached adulthood.
