Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1678 Birth Record of Ester Wheeler in Concord, 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 1678 birth entry for Ester Wheeler in the Concord, Massachusetts town vital records book:
The birth entry is the 9th from the top of the "The County Records Again" birth listings:

The birth record transcription is:

"Ester daughter of John Wheeler born                            1.10.78"

The source citation for this record is:

George Tolman (compiler), Concord, Massachusetts Births, Marriages and Deaths, 1635-1850 (Concord, Mass. : Committee on Printing, 1894), page 22, Esther Wheeler birth entry, 1.10.78 (1 December 1678).

This is an abstract from a copied town record book for Concord, Massachusetts, so it is a Derivative Source with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the birth  of Esther Wheeler.

 Esther Wheeler (1678-1756) was the daughter of John and Sarah (Larkin) Wheeler of Concord, Massachusetts.  She married Samuel Prescott (1674-1758) of Lancaster on 5 May 1698 in Concord.

Samuel and Esther (Wheeler) Prescott are my 7th great-grandparents, through their daughter Dorothy Prescott (1702-1774) who married James Hildreth (1698-1761) on 20 December 1721 in Chelmsford, Massachusetts.
