Treasure Chest Thursday #304: 1756 Marriage Record of Amos Plimpton and Mary Guild in Walpole, 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  1756 marriage record of Amos Plimpton and Mary Guild in the vital record book of Walpole, Massachusetts:

The snippet of this record:

The transcription of this record is:

"PLIMPTON (see Plympton, Plymton), Amos and Mary Guild, Dec. 9, 1756."

The source citation for this record is:

Vital Records of Walpole, Massachusetts to the Year 1850 (Boston, Mass. :New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1902), Marriages, page 161, Amos Plimpton and Mary Guild entry.

Amos Plimpton and Mary Guild were my 5th great-grandparents.  They had five children together, but only two lived to adulthood.  Their daughter, Mercy Plimpton (1772-1850), who married Aaron Smith (1765-1841) in 1795, is my 4th great-grandmother.
