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 1704 marriage record of John Kenyon and Elizabeth Remington in North Kingstown, Rhode Island:

The John Kenyon marriage record is:

The transcription of this record is:

"KENYON, John Jr., and Elizabeth Remington; m. by Thomas Mumford, Justice, July 1704"

The source citation for this record is:

John Kenyon, Jr. was born about 1682 in Kingstown, Rhode Island to John Kenyon and his unknown first wife, and died before 28 February 1734/5 in Westerly.  He married Elizabeth Remington in July 1704.  She was born in about 1686 in Kingstown to John and Abigail (Richmond) Remington, and died before 5 October 1747.

John and Elizabeth (Remington) Kenyon are my 7th great-grandparents, through their son Sylvester Kenyon (1710-1800) who married Anna Barber (1717-after 1800).
