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 1703 birth record of Hezekiah Sawtell in Groton, Massachusetts:

The transcription of the birth record is:

wife born at groton 2 day of march 1703"

The source citation for this record is:

Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988, digital images, (, "Groton Births, Marriages and Deaths," page 4 (image 345 of 990), Hazekiah Sawtell birth entry.

Hezekiah Sawtell (1703-1779)  was the 13th and last child of Obadiah and Hannah (Lawrence) Sawtell, born in Groton, Massachusetts.  He married Joanna Wilson (1701-1786) in 1723 in Groton, , and they had eleven children between 1724 and 1747, all born in Groton.  Joanna was the daughter of John and Elizabeth (Foster) Wilson of Billerica, Massachusetts.

They are my 6th great-grandparents.  I descend through their son Ephraim Sawtell (1735-1800) who married Abigail Stone (1737-????) in 1757 in Groton.
