1730 Marriage Record of Isaac Read and Experience Willis in Sudbury, Mass. -- Post #369 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  1730 marriage record of Isaac Read and Experience Willis in Sudbury, Massachusetts:  

The marriage record:

The transcription information for this record:

"[REED] Isaac and Experiance [Experience, M.R.] Willis, Feb. 11, 1729-30."

The source citation for this record is:

Vital Records of Sudbury, Massachusetts to the year 1850 (Boston, Mass. : New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1903), Marriages, page 256, Isaac Reed and Experiance Willis entry.

Isaac Read (1704-1780) was the son 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.

My family lives in the house that Samuel and HIS father, Roger, built at the start of the 18th century - the Willis family continuously occupied the house up until the Great Depression and had several folks respond to the alarm on April 18 1775. Read and Seaver ring a bell as well, off the top of my head can't say for sure but check the Sudbury Militia rolls!
