1719 Birth Record of Benjamin Soule in Dartmouth, Mass. - Post 419 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 1719 birth record of Benjamin Soule in the Dartmouth, Massachusetts town records:

The Benjamin Soule birth record is on the left-hand page of the image above in the top section which lists all of the births of the Jacob and Rebekah Soule children:

The transcription of this record is:

"[SOULE] Benjamin s[on] of Jacob and Rebekah   18 Nov   1719"

The source citation for this record is:

"Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988," indexed records and digital images, (, "Dartmouth, Births, Marriages, Deaths" page 154 (image 81 of 2331), Benjamin Soule entry.

Benjamin Soule (1719-1803) was the 6th child of 8 born to Jacob and Rebekah (Gifford) Soule of Dartmouth, Massachusetts.  All of them are recorded in the town record on the left-hand page of the image above.  Benjamin married Meribah Waite (1720-1803) in about 1742 in Dartmouth.  

Benjamin and Meribah (Waite) Soule my 6th great-grandparents.  I am descended from their daughter Martha Soule (1743-1828) who married David Kirby (1740-1832)in 1763 and resided in Dartmouth and Westport, Massachusetts.
