Treasure Chest Thursday - 1651 Birth Record of Sary Hagar in Watertown, Mass.

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 1651 birth record of "Sary" Hagar in Watertown, Massachusetts town records:

The birth record for Sarah Hagar is near the bottom of the right-hand column on the image above:

This record says:

Sary Hagar daughter of william and Mary borne 1^st of September [1651]

The source citation for this record is:

.Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988, indexed database and digital image, ( : accessed 24 November 2012), Watertown births, Marriages and deaths, Page 24 (image 133 of 3991), Sary Hagar birth entry, 1 September 1651.

This record is an Original Source with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the name of Sarah Hagar, her parents names, and her birth date and place.

Sarah Hagar (1651-1722) was the daughter of William and Mary (Bemis) Hagar of Watertown.  She married Nathaniel Whitney (1646-1733) on 12 March 1673/4 in Watertown.  They had eight children born in Watertown, and Sarah died 29 July 1722 in Weston, Massachusetts, which was part of Watertown before about 1707.

Nathaniel and Sarah (Hagar) Whitney are my 7th great-grandparents, through their son William Whitney (1683-1720), who married Martha Peirce (1681-1759) in 1706 in Watertown.
