Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1752 Birth Record of Lydia Bathrick in Westborough, 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 birth entry for Lydia Bathrick (1752-1795) in the Westborough, Massachusetts town record book:

The Lydia Bathrick birth entry is the fifth record on the left-hand page above:

The transcription of this record is:

"Lydia Bathrick was borne March y'e 11'th 1752 of David Barthrick and Lydia his wife."

The source citation for this record is:

Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988, indexed database and digital image, ( : accessed 25 November 2020), "Westborough > Births, Marriages, and Deaths," page 27 (image 267 of 1417), Lydia Bathrick birth entry, 11 March 1752.

This is probably a transcription of an original town record book for Westborough, Massachusetts, so it is a Derivative Source with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the birth of Lydia Bathrick and her parents names.
Lydia Bathrick (1752-1795), the daughter of David and Lydia (Maynard) Bathrick of Westborough.  She married Phinehas Brigham (1755-1802), the son of Moses and Mehitable (Grout) Brigham of Westborough, Massachusetts on 29 April 1779 in Westborough.  They are my 4th great-grandparents, through their son Lambert Brigham (1794-1834) who married Sophia Buck (1797-1882) in 1817.
