1714 Marriage Record of Samuel Horton and Hannah Atwood in Eastham, Mass. --- Post 391 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 1714 marriage record of Samuel Horton and Hannah Atwood in Eastham, Massachusetts:

The marriage record is on the right-hand page, the tsecond record down:

The transcription of the marriage record is:

"Samuel Horton & Hannah Atwood Jan 28^th 1713/14"

The source citation for this record is:

"Massachusetts, Town Clerk, Vital and Town Records, 1620-1998," database with digital images, ( : accessed 22 November 2017), Barnstable County, Orleans > Orleans and Eastham Records,  page 339 (image 178 of 185), Samuel Horton and Hannah Atwood marriage entry, 1714.

Samuel Horton (1686-1778) was the son of John Horton (1647-1710) and Hannah --?-- (1650-1690) of Eastham, Massachusetts.  Hannah Atwood (1686-1771) was the daughter of Stephen Atwood (1653-1722) and Apphia Bangs (1651-1722) of Eastham, Massachusetts.  Samuel Horton and Hannah Atwood had 8 children between 1715 and 1731, and all were recorded in the Eastham town records.

Samuel and Hannah (Atwood) Horton are my 6th great-grandparents, through their son Narhaniel Horton (1721-1771) who married Eunice Snow (1722-1816) in 1742 in Eastham, Massachusetts.
