Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 258: 1757 Marriage Record of Ephraim Sawtell and Abigail Stone

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  1757 marriage record of Ephraim Sawtell and Abigail Stone in Groton, Massachusetts:
