1704 Birth Record of Isaac Read (1704-1780) of Sudbury, Mass. -- Post #368 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  1704 birth record of Isaac Read, son of Thomas and Mary (Bigelow) Read of Sudbury, Massachusetts: 

The birth record of Isaac Read is on the left-hand page, the fifth entry from the top:

The transcription of this record is:

"Isaac the son of Thomas Reed and Mary his
wife was Born feb 23: 1704"

The source citation for this record is:

Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988, digital images, ( : accessed 15 May 2014), Sudbury, "Births, Marriages and Deaths, 1663-1829," Volume 4, page 16 (image 12 of 142), Isaac Reed birth entry, 1704.

Isaac Read (1704-1780) was the second child of Thomas and Mary (Bigelow) (Bruce) Read of Sudbury, Massachusetts.  Isaac married Experience Willis (1709-1787), daughter of Samuel and Susannah (Gleason) Willis, in 1730, and they had 11 children between 1731 and 1753.  

Isaac and Experience (Willis) Read are my 6th great-grandparents, through their daughter Sarah Read (1736-1809) who married Norman Seaver (1734-1787) in 1755.
