1729 Marriage Record of Isaac Buck and Ruth Graves in Reading, Mass. --- Post 406 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 1729 marriage record of Isaac Buck and Ruth Graves in the Reading, Massachusetts vital record book:

The Buck-Graves marriage is:

The transcription of this record is:

"[BUCK], Isaac of Woburn, and Ruth Graves, Dec. 3, 1729.*"

The asterisk notes that an intention was not recorded.

A similar record was found in the Woburn vital records book.

The source citation for this record is:

Thomas W. Baldwin (compiler), Vital Records of Reading, Massachusetts to the Year 1850 (Boston, Mass. : New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1912), Marriages, page 298, Isaac Buck and Ruth Graves entry, 1729.

Isaac Buck (1706-1780) and Ruth Graves (1711-?????) married on 3 December 1729 in Reading.  They had six children, but only two were recorded in a town or vital record.  

Isaac Buck and Ruth Graves are my 6th great-grandparents.  I am descended from son Isaac Buck (1732-????) who had a relationship with Mary Richards (1733-????).
