1709 Birth Record of Nathaniel Wade in Charlestown, Mass. - Post 421 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 1709 birth record of Nathaniel Wade in the Charlestown, Massachusetts town records:

The Nathaniel Wade birth record is on the right-hand page of the image above:

The transcription of the birth record for Nathaniel Wade is:

"Nathaniel Wade, son of Jonathan & Mary Wade, born January 27^th   1708/9"

The source citation for this record is:

"Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988," indexed records and digital images, ("Charlestown Archives, Births, Marriages and Deaths," Births, page 149 (image 134 of 385), Nathaniel Wade entry.

Nathaniel Wade (1709-1754) was the 4th child of 7 born to Jonathan and Mary (Dolberry?) Wade of Charlestown, Massachusetts. 
This town record is, I believe, a derivative source copy of the original town records in the Charlestown town record book. 

Nathaniel Wade (1709-1754) married Ruth Hawkins (1711-1789) in 1731 in Scituate, Rhode Island, and they had 6 children between 1731 and 1746.  They are my 6th great-grandparents.  I am descended from their son Simon Wade (1731-1800) who married Deborah Tracy (1731-1800) in about 1763 and resided in Foster, Rhode Island.
