Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1744 Death Records for Samuel and Elizabeth (Wheeler) Fletcher in Concord, 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 1744 death records of Samuel Fletcher and Elizabeth Fletcher in the Concord, Massachusetts vital town record book:

The death records for Samuel Fletcher and Elizabeth Fletcher are near the bottom of the page:

This record says:

"Cornett Samuel Fletcher Husband to Elisabeth his Wife Died october. 23 : 1744"

"Elisabeth Fletcher Relict Widow of Cornett Samuel Fletcher Died october. 26. 1744."

The source citation for this record is:

George Tolman (compiler), Concord, Massachusetts Births, Marriages and Deaths, 1635-1850 (Concord, Mass. : Committee on Printing, 1894), Concord Registers -- Book II, page 159, Samuel Fletcher and Elizabeth Fletcher death entries, 1744.

This record is a Derivative Source with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the names of Samuel Fletcher and Elizabeth Fletcher, and the death dates and place.

Samuel Fletcher (1657-1744) was the son of Francis and Elizabeth (Wheeler) Fletcher of Concord.  Elizabeth Wheeler (1664-1744) was the daughter of Thomas and Sarah (Merriam) Wheeler of Concord.  They married 15 June 1682 in Concord, Massachusetts.

Samuel Fletcher and Elizabeth Wheeler are my 7th great-grandparents, through their son John Fletcher (1692-????) and his wife Mary Goble (1694-1734) who married in Watertown in 1715.
