Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1693 Birth Record of Nathan Brigham (1693-1784) in Marlborough, 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 Nathan Brigham (1693-1784) in the Marlborough, Massachusetts vital record book:

The birth entry is 13th one from the top of the page:

The transcription of this record is:

"[BRIGHAM] Nathan, s. of Nathan and Elizabeth, Nov. 28, 1693."

The source citation for this record is:

Franklin P. Rice (editor), Vital Records of Marlborough, Massachusetts, to the End of the Year 1849 (Boston, Mass. : Franklin P. Rice, 1908), Births, page 44, Nathan Brigham birth entry, 28 November 1693, son of Nathan and Elizabeth.

This is an abstract from an original town record book for Marlborough, Massachusetts, so it is a Derivative Source with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the birth of Nathan Brigham and the names of his parents.
Nathan Brigham (1693-1784) was the eldest son of Nathan and Elizabeth (Maynard) Brigham of Marlborough.  He married Dinah Rice (1693-1725), the daughter of Edmund and Ruth (Parker) Rice of Marlborough, on 24 December 1717 in Marlborough.  

Nathan and Dinah (Rice) Brigham are my 6th great-grandparents, through their son Moses Brigham (1723-1769) who married Mehitable Grout (1726-1795) in 1749.
