Treasure Chest Thursday Post 294: Birth Record of Sarah Reed (1736-1809) in Sudbury, 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  1736 birth record of Sarah Reed (1736-1809) in Sudbury, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.

The record of Sarah Reed's birth is at the bottom of the left-hand page of the above image:

The transcription of this record is:

Sarah Reed the Daughter of Isac Reed and
Expereince Reed his wife was born December 28  1736.

The source citation for this record is:

"Massachusetts, Town Clerk, Vital and Town Records, 1627-2001," digital images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 15 April 2014),"Sudbury, Births, Marriages and Deaths, 1663-1829," Volume 4, page 64 (stamped), image 36 of 142, Sarah Reed birth record, 1736; citing original data from Massachusetts town clerk records (on FHL US/CAN microfilms).

The same record was in the Wayland town records also, and in the Sudbury and Wayland published vital record books.

Sarah Read (1736-1809) was the daughter of Isaac Read (1704-1780) and Experience Willis (1709-1787).  She married Norman Seaver (1734-1787) in 1755 in Sudbury.  I am descended through their first son, Benjamin Seaver (1757-1816).
