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 1726 marriage record of Joseph Richards and Mary Bouden in the Lynn, Massachusetts vital record book:

The Richards-Bouden marriage record is:

The transcription of this record is:

"[RICHARDS] Joseph, and Mary Bouden, May 5, 1716*"

The source citation for this record is:

Vital Records of Lynn, Massachusetts to the end of the Year 1849 (Salem, Mass. : The Essex Institute, 1906), 2 Volumes, Marriages, page 327, Joseph richards and Mary Bouden entry, 1726.

Joseph Richards (1703-1748) was the son of Crispus Richards and Sarah Collins of Lynn, Mass.  Mary Bowden (1705-1755) was the daughter of Michael Bowden and Sarah Davis of Lynn.  Joseph and Mary (Bowden) Richards had eight children between 1730 and 1746.  

Joseph Richards and Mary Bowden are my 6th great-grandparents.  I am descended from their daughter Mary Richards (1733-????) who had a relationship with Isaac Buck (1732-????).
