Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 318: 1734 Birth Record of Abigail Wing (1734-1806)

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 1734 birth record of Abigail Wing (1734-1806), daughter of Benjamin and Content (Tucker) Wing, in Dartmouth, Massachusetts town records:

Births of  nine children of Benjamin Wing, by his first two wives, are on the left-hand page:

Abigail Wing's birth record is the fourth one down this list:

The transcription of this record is:

"Abigail Wing Daughter of Benjamin Wing and Content his wife
was Born the 25th day of april 1734"

The source citation for this record is:

Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988, digital images, (, "Dartmouth, Births, Marriages, Deaths," page 200 (image 465 of 2331), Abigail Wing birth entry; citing original data from Massachusetts town and city clerk records in Jay and Delene Holbrook, Massachusetts Vital and Town Records (Provo, Utah : Holbrook Research Institute), Microfiche collection,

Abigail Wing is my fifth great-grandmother, who married Jonathan White (1732-1804) in 1756.  I am descended from their son, Humphrey White (1757-1814) who married Sibel Kirby (1761-1848).
