Treasure Chest Thursday Post 297: 1720 Birth Record of Abigail Fletcher (1720-1783)

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  1720 birth record of Abigail Fletcher (1720-1783), daughter of John and Mary (Goble) Fletcher, in Concord, Massachusetts:

The Abigail Fletcher birth record is the second record from the bottom of the page above:

The transcription of this record is:

"Abigail Fletcher, the daughter of John Fletcher and Mary his wife was born
July the 2d day 1720"

The source citation for this record is:

George Tolman (compiler), Concord, Massachusetts Births, Marriages and Deaths, 1635-1850 (Concord, Mass. : Committee on Printing, 1894), page 99, Abigail Fletcher birth record.

Abigail Fletcher married Samuel Whitney in 1741 in Weston, Massachusetts.  They are my 5th great-grandparents, and had 13 children between 1743 and 1767.  Their 12th child, daughter Martha Whitney (1764-1832) married Benjamin Seaver (1757-1816) in 1783.
