Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 316: 1774 Marriage Record of John Phillips and Mary Richards

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 1774 marriage record of  John Phillips and Mary Richards in Southborough, Massachusetts:

The record for John Phillips and Mary Richards is on the right-hand page about halfway down the page:

The marriage record says:

"John Phillips & Mary Richards marrid June 3 1774"

The source citation for this record is:

Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988, digital images, (, Southborough Births, Marriages and Deaths, image 123 of 1007, page 83, John Phillips and Mary Richards marriage entry.

John Phillips is my 5th great-grandfather and Mary Richards is one of my 5th great-grandmothers, but they did not have my 4th great-grandfather.  Mary had Isaac Buck in 1757 out of wedlock and John Phillips had Martha "Patty" Phillips in 1757 by his first wife, Hannah Brown.  

After John and Mary (Richards) Phillips married in 1774, Isaac Buck and Patty Phillips lived in the John Phillips household and they married in Lancaster, Massachusetts in 1780.
