A transcription of this record is:
"Jonas Prescott and Elisabeth Harwood Were Published in Wesford
in order for marriage as the law directs pr Joshua Fletcher
The source citation for this record is:
Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988, digital images, Ancestry.com (http://www.ancestry.com), Westford > Births, Marriages and Death, page 21 (image 17 of 1750), Jonas Prescott and Elisabeth Harwood marriage entry, 1731; 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.
This is a marriage intentions record, entered before the actual marriage. I did not find the actual marriage record in this database.
Jonas and Elisabeth (Harwood) Prescott are my 6th great-grandparents. Elisabeth (1701-1739) was the second wife of Jonas Prescott (1703-1784, he had three wives), and the mother of my ancestor Elizabeth Prescott (1734-1812) who married Zachariah Hildreth (1728-1784) in 1753.
