Treasure Chest Thursday - 1685 Birth of Deborah Wight (1685-1730) 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 1685 birth record of Deborah Wight in the Medfield, Massachusetts vital record book:   

The Deborah Wight birth record is: 
The transcription of this record is:

"[WIGHT] Debroah, d. Ephraim and Lidia, Dec. 1, 1685."

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 103, Deborah Wight, 1 December 1685.

This is a Derivative Source record for the birth of Deborah Wight.  
It is Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the birth date and place, and the names of Debroah and her parents.  The original source records are probably Medfield town and/or church records for the time period that are either lost or unavailable to digitize.

Deborah Wight (1685-1730) was the daughter of Ephraim and Lydia (Morse) Wight of Medfield. She married Thomas Boyden (1682-1770) in 1707. 
They are my 7th great-grandparents, through their daughter Mary Boyden (1708-1776) who married Nathaniel Guild (1712-1796) in 1733 in Dedham.
