Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1674 Birth of Miletiah Clarke in Medfield, Massachusetts

It's Treasure Chest Tuesday - 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 1674 birth record of Miletiah Clarke in the Medfield, Massachusetts town vital record book:

The birth record is 17th entry of the CLARKE entries on this page:

The transcription of this record is:

"[CLARKE] Miletiah, d. Ephraim and Marie, Aug. 4, 1674."

The source citation for this record is:

Vital Records of Medfield, Massachusetts to the Year 1850 (Boston, Mass. : New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1903), Births, page 40, Miletiah Clarke entry, 4 August 1674.

This is a Derivative Source record for the birth of Miletiah Clarke. It is Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the birth date and place, and the name Miletiah Clarke and her parents' names. The original record is probably a Medfield town record that has been lost over the centuries.

Miletiah Clark (1674-1747) Timothy Hamant (1667-1718) in 1696 in Medfield; she was the daughter of Ephraim and Mary (Bullen) Clark of Medfield, Massachusetts.  Timothy was the son of of Francis and Mary (--?--) Hamant of Medfield. Timothy and Miletiah (Clarke) Hamant are my 7th great-grandparents, through their son Timothy Hamant (1698-1774), who married Hepsibath Clark (1699-1791), and through their daughter Melatiah Hamant (1704-1751), who married Michael Metcalf (1706-1771) in 1728.
