Treasure Chest Tuesday - 1706 Death Record of Joseph White (1636-1706) in Mendon, Massachusetts

This week's Tuesday Treasure is the 1706 Mendon, Massachusetts town record of the death of Joseph White:

The Joseph White entry is near the bottom of the page:
The record snippet is:

The extracted information from this record for Joseph White is:
*  [WHITE] Joseph, Capt. Mar. 23, 1706."

The source citation for this marriage is:

Thomas W. Baldwin, Vital records of Mendon, Massachusetts, to the year 1850 (Boston, Mass. : New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1920), Deaths, page 514, Capt. Joseph White entry.

The vital records book for Mendon with this record is a Derivative Source, but the information is Primary Information and the evidence is Direct Evidence of the name and death date.  The death information was obtained from an earlier Town Records book for Mendon which was likely written in an original book at the time of the death.

Joseph White (1636-1706) is my 9th great-grandfather.  He married Lydia Rogers (1642-1704) in 1660 in Weymouth, Massachusetts.  Their son, Joseph White (1662-1757) married Lydia Copeland (1661-1727) 1681 in Mendon, Massachusetts.
