1709 Birth and Baptism Records of Mary Farwell (1709-1804) in Groton, Mass. --- Post 405 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 1709 birth record and 1711 baptism record of Mary Farwell in the Groton, Massachusetts vital record book:
The birth record for Mary Farwell is the 7th entry on the page:

The extracted information of the birth record is:

[FARWELL], Marey, d[aughter]. Joseph and Hannah, Feb. 5, 1709.

The extracted information for the baptism record is:

[FARWELL], Mary, d[aughter] Joseph and Hannah, bp. June 10, 1711.  C.R. 1.

The source citation for this record is:

Vital Records of Groton, Massachusetts to the End of the Year 1849 (Salem, Mass. : The Essex Institute, 1926-1927), Two volumes, Volume 1, Births, page 82, Mary Farwell birth entry.

Mary Farwell (1709-1804) was the 6th of 10 children of Joseph and Hannah (Colburn) Farwell of Groton, Massachusetts.  She married James Stone (1702-1783) in 1726 in Groton, and they had ten children between 1727 and 1750, all born in Groton.  James was the son of John Stone (1658-1735) and Sarah Nutting (1663-????) 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.
