Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 332: 1757 Marriage Record for Elijah Champlin and Phebe Card

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 1757 marriage record of Elijah Champlin and Phebe Card in South Kingstown, Rhode Island:

The snippet for the Champlin-Card marriage is:

The transcription of the record is:

CHAMPLAIN, Elijah, of Charlestown, and Phebe Card, of south Kingstown; by Samuel Tefft, Justice, Nov. 27, 1751.

The source citation for this record is:

"Rhode Island, Vital Records Extracts, 1636-1899," indexed database and digital image, (, Volume 5, Washington County: Births, Marriages, Deaths, South Kingstown -- Marriages, Page 11 (image 131 of 523), Elijah Champlain and Phebe Card entry.

This is Primary Information extracted from the South Kingstown town records, and the book is a Derivative Source with Direct Evidence.

Elijah and Phebe (Card) Champlin are my 5th great-grandparents, through their son Joseph Champlin (1757-185) and his wife Nancy Kenyon (1765-1833).
