Birth Record of Ruth Graves (1711-????) of Lynn, Massachusetts - Post 407 for 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 1711 birth record of Ruth Graves in the Lynn, Massachusetts vital record book:

The Ruth Graves birth record is:

The transcription of this record is:

"[GRAVES], d. Thomas and Ruth, Jan. 10, 1710-11."

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, Births, page 168, Ruth Graves entry, 1711.

Ruth Graves was the only recorded child of her parents were Thomas Graves (1686-1756) and Ruth Collins (1685-1715) of Lynn, Massachusetts.  Thomas Graves married, secondly, Ruth Taylor (1690-1756) on 22 February 1714/5 in Lynn.
Ruth Graves (1711-?????) and Isaac Buck (1706-1780) 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 their son Isaac Buck (1732-????) who had a relationship with Mary Richards (1733-????).
