1717 Birth Record of Anna Barber -- Treasure Chest Thursday Post #335

This week's Thursday Treasure is the 1717 birth record of Anna Barber (1717-after 1800) in South Kingstown, Rhode Island, the daughter of Moses and Susanna (West) Barber:

The birth record for Anna Barber:

The transcription of the birth record:

BARBER, Anna [of Moses and Susannah], Oct. 8, 1717

 The source citation for this record is:

"Rhode Island, Vital Records Extracts, 1636-1899," indexed database and digital image, (, Volume 5, "Washington County Births, Marriages, Deaths," page 38 (image 158 of 523), South Kingstown births, Anna Barber entry.

The last two of the 14 children of Moses and Susannah (West) Barber are recorded in the South Kingstown, Rhode Island town records.  Anna Barber is my 6th great-grandmother, who married Sylvester Kenyon (1710-1800) in 1740, and probably died in Voluntown, Connecticut.  I am descended through their son, John Kenyon (1742-1831), who married Anna Kenyon (about 1742 - before 1831).

NOTE:  Treasure Chest Thursday is one of the weekly genealogy blog themes on Geneabloggers.  I use it to display, transcribe and source records for my ancestral families.
