1760 Death Records of Jabez and Elizabeth Snow in Eastham, Mass. --- Post 394 of Treasure Chest Thursday

t'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 1760 death records of Jabez and Elizabeth Snow in Eastham, Massachusetts:

The death records are on the left-hand page on the image above, about two thirds down the  page:

The transcription of these records is:

"Deacon Jabez Snow died the six day of Sepember 1760
Deacon Snows wife Died the sixth day of July 1772"

The source citation for this record is:

"Massachusetts, Town Clerk, Vital and Town Records, 1626-2001," FamilySearch( : accessed 14 April 2014), digital image, Barnstable County, Eastham, Orleans, "Births, Marriages, Deaths, 1701-1796," page 36 (image 26 of 126), Jabez Snow and Elizabeth Snow death entries.

Jabez Snow (1696-1760) was the son of Jabez Snow (1670-1750) and Elizabeth Treat (1676-1755) of Eastham, Massachusetts.  Jabez Snow married Elizabeth Paine (1602-1772) in 1720 in Eastham, and they had six children between 1722 and 1740.

Jabez Snow and Elizabeth Paine are my 6th great-grandparents, through their daughter Eunice Snow (1722-1816), who married Nathaniel Horton (1721-1771) in 1742 in Eastham, Massachusetts.

This record set is an original record book with the records of Eastham families grouped together.  Below the marriage record, and above the death records, are the birth records for the children of Jabez and Elisabeth (Paine) Snow.   Several of the Eastham record books recorded families rather than individual events in chronological order.  As such, this is an image of an Original Source record, with Primary Information and Direct Evidence for the deaths of Jabez and Elisabeth (Paine) Snow.
