1702 Birth Record of James Stone (1702-1783) in Groton, Mass. --- Post 404 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 1701/2 birth record of James Stone in Groton, Massachusetts town records:

The birth record for James Stone is the first entry on the right-hand page:

The transcription of the birth record is:

"James Ston the Son of John Stone and Sarah his
wife born at groton Jeneuary 
the 23 1701/"

The source citation for this record is:

Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988, digital images, (, Groton, "Births, Marriages and Deaths," image 432 of 990), James Stone birth entry, 1702.

James Stone (1702-1783) was the 2nd of two children of John and Sarah (Nutting) Stone, born in Groton, Massachusetts.  He married Mary Farwell (1709-1804) in 1726 in Groton, and they had ten children between 1727 and 1750, all born in Groton.  Mary was the daughter of Joseph Farwell (1670-1740) and Hannah Colburn (1673-1741) of Groton, Massachusetts.

James and Mary (Farwell) Stone are my 6th great-grandparents.  I descend through their daughter Abigail Stone (1737-1800) who married Ephraim Sawtell (1735-1800) in 1757 in Groton.
