Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1699 Marriage Record of Jonas Prescott and Thankfull 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 1699 marriage entry for Jonas Prescott and Thankfull Wheeler in the Concord, Massachusetts town vital records book:
The marriage entry is the 10th from the top of the page:

The birth record transcription is:

"Jonas Prescote of Grotton & Thankfull Wheeler of Concord were married by y'e Rever'nd m'r Joseph Estabrooke Octob'r y'e 5th, 1699."

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 50, Jonas Prescott and Thankful Wheeler entry, 5 October 1699.

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 marriage of Jonas Prescott and Thankfull Wheeler.

Jonas Prescott (1678-1750) was the son of Jonas and Mary (Loker) Prescott of Groton, Massachusetts.  Thankful Wheeler (1682-1716) was the daughter of John and Sarah (Larkin) Wheeler of Concord, Massachusetts.

Jonas and Thankful (Wheeler) Prescott are my 7th great-grandparents, through their son Jonas Prescott (1703-1784) who married Elizabeth Harwood (1701-1739) on 7 March 1730/1 in Westford, Massachusetts.
