1698 Birth Record of Elizabeth Fletcher (1698-1775) of Chelmsford and Westford, Mass. --- Post 401 of Treasure Chest Thursday

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - a chance 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 1698 birth record in Chelmsford, Massachusetts for Elizabeth Fletcher (1698-1775):

The Elizabeth Fletcher birth record is about 40% down the left-hand page on the image above:

The transcription of this record is:

"Elisabeth Fletcher daughter of Joshua and Sarah Fletcher born June 10^th 1698."

The source citation for this record is:

Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988, digital images, (, "Chelmsford Birth, Marriage and Deaths," Page 28 (Image 367 of 1719), Elizabeth Fletcher birth entry.

Elizabeth Fletcher (1698-1775) was the eighth and last child Joshua Fletcher (1644-1713) and Sarah Woolley (1650-????) of Chelmsford, Massachusetts.  She married Joseph Keyes (1698-1744) in 1720 and they had five children, all born in Chelmsford.

They are my 6th great-grandparents.  I descend through their son Jonathan Keyes (1722-1781), who married Elizabeth Fletcher (1720-1761) in 1746.
