1712 Birth Record for Samuel Peirce in Watertown, Massachusetts - - Post 381 of Treasure Chest Thursday

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  1712 birth record of Samuel Peirce in Watertown, Massachusetts: 

The birth record:

The transcription of the record:

July 3:1712  Samuel Peirce the son of John Peirce and Elisabeth his wife was born July 3:1712

The source citation for this record is:

"Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988," digital images, (, "Watertown > Births, Marriages and Deaths," page 37 (image 202 of 3991), Samuel Peirce birth entry.

Samuel Peirce (1712-1772) was the son of John Peirce and Elizabeth Smith of Watertown, their fourth child of seven. He married Abigail Stearns (1715-1798) in 1739 in Watertown, and they had nine children.   

Samuel and Abigail (Stearns) Peirce are my 6th great-grandparents.  I am descended from their daughter, Abigail Peirce (1750-1776), who married Jeremiah Knowlton (1745-1785) in 1771.
