1730 Marriage Record of Henry Smith and Ruth Barbur in Medfield, Mass. - - Post 383 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  1730 marriage record of Henry Smith and Ruth Barbur in Medfield, Massachusetts:

The Smith-Barbur marriage record:

The transcription of this record is:

"[BARBUR] Ruth and Henry Smith, Sept. 1, 1730*"

NOTE:  The asterisk (*) indicates that intentions were not recorded in the town records book.

The source citation for this record is:

Vital Records of Medfield, Massachusetts to the Year 1850 (Boston, Mass. : New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1903), Marriages, page 174, Ruth Barbur and Henry Smith entry.

Henry Smith (1680-1743) married Ruth Barbur (1696-1761) on 1 September 1730 as his third wife.  They had three children together between 1730 and 1740 in Medfield. 

Henry and Ruth (Barbur) Smith are my 6th great-grandparents.  I am descended from their second child, Moses Smith (1732-1806), who married Patience Hamant (1735-1780) in 1762 in Medfield.
