Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1724 Death of Thomas Goble (1656-1724) in Concord, Massachusetts

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 1724 death record of Thomas Goble in the Concord, Massachusetts vital town record book:

The death record for Thomas Goble is near the bottom of the page:

This record says:

"Thomas Goble Husband to Sarah his wife died March y^e 10th: day 1723/4"

The source citation for this record is:

George Tolman (compiler), Concord, Massachusetts Births, Marriages and Deaths, 1635-1850 (Concord, Mass. : Committee on Printing, 1894), page 104, Thomas Goble death entry, 1724.

This record is a Derivative Source with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the name of Thomas Goble and the death date and place.  The Original Source is a town record book marriage register and a county marriage register that are no longer available.  Apparently, the records in this book are from a copy of the original register.  They are still Primary Information and Direct Evidence for the names and marriage event.

Thomas Goble (1656-1724) was the son of Thomas and Ruth (--?--) Goble of Concord.  He married Sarah Shepard (1667-1746), the daughter of John and Sarah (Goble) Shepard of Concord, on 4 January 1686/7 in Concord, Massachusetts.

Thomas Goble and Sarah Shepard are my 7th great-grandparents, through their daughter Mary Goble (1694-1734) who married John Fletcher (1692-????) in Watertown in 1715.
