Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1666 Birth Record of Ann Moore in Lancaster, 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 Ann Moore in 1666 in the Lancaster, Massachusetts town record book:

The birth entry is the 3rd from the bottom of the "Middlesex County Records" birth listings:

The birth record transcription is:

"Ann daughter of Jno. Moore, & Ann his wife was borne 17 . 5. mo. 1666"

The source citation for this record is:

Henry S. Nourse (editor), The Birth, Marriage and Death Register, Church Records and Epitaphs of Lancaster, Massachusetts, 1643-1850 ( Clinton, Mass. : W.J. Coulter, Printer, 1890), page 11, "Middlesex County Records," Births, Ann Moore birth entry, 17 5th month 1666.

This is an abstract from a copied town record book for Lancaster, Massachusetts, so it is a Derivative Source with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the birth of Ann Moore and the names of her parents.
Ann Moore (1666-1760) was the daughter of John and Anne (Smith) Moor of Sudbury, Massachusetts. She married Ephraim Hildreth (1654-1731) in 1786 in Stow, Massachusetts.  He was the son of Richard and Elizabeth (--?--) Hildreth of Chelmsford, Massachusetts.

Ephraim and Anna (Moor) Hildreth are my 7th great-grandparents, through their son James Hildreth (1698-1761) who married Dorothy Prescott (1702-1774) in 1721 in Chelmsford.
