1720 Death of William Whitney of Weston, Mass. - Post #371 of Treasure Chest Thursday

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 death record of William Whitney (1683-1720) in Weston, Massachusetts:  
William Whitney's death record is the 5th entry from the bottom of the page:

The transcription of this record is:

"D[eath]   William Whitney Deceas^d in Weston y^e 24^th Day of June 1720."

The source citation for this record is:

Mary Frances Peirce, Town of Weston. Births, Deaths and Marriages, 1707-1850. Gravestones-, 1703-1900. Church Records, 1709-1825. Appendix and Addenda, Centennial Society (Boston, Mass. : McIncloe Bros., Printers, 1901), page 10, William Whitney death entry.

William Whitney was born 6 May 1683 in Watertown, Massachusetts to Nathaniel and Sarah (Hagar) Whitney.  He married Martha Peirce on 17 May 1706 in Watertown, Mass.  They had five children between 1707 and 1719, including Samuel Whitney (1719-1782) who married Abigail Ffletcher (1720-1783) in 1741 in Weston.

William and Martha (Peirce) Whitney are my 6th great-grandparents.
