Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1693 Birth Record of Dinah Rice (1693-1725) 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 Dinah Rice (1693-1725) in the Marlborough, Massachusetts vital record book:

The birth entry is the first one at the top of the page:

The transcription of this record is:

"RICE, Dinah, d. Edmond and Rutth, Oct. 15, 1693."

The baptism record just below the birth entry is probably for Dinah also.

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 154, Dinah Rice birth entry, 15 October 1693, daughter of Edmond and Ruth Rice.

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 Dinah Rice and the names of her parents.
Dinah Rice (1693-1725) was the daughter of Edmund and Ruth (Parker) Rice of Marlborough.  She married  on 24 December 1717 in Marlborough to Nathan Brigham (1693-1784), the eldest son of Nathan and Elizabeth (Maynard) Brigham of 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.
