Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1698 Marriage of John Stone and Sarah (Nutting) Farnsworth of Groton, 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 1698 marriage entry for John Stone and Sarah Farnsworth in the Groton, Massachusetts town vital record book:

The birth entry is the 9th one down the list for Farnsworth:

The marriage record transcription is:

"[Farnsworth] Sarah, and John Stone, at Concord, Dec. 7, 1698"

  The source citation for this record is:

Vital Records of Groton, Massachusetts to the End of the Year 1849 (Salem, Mass. : The Essex Institute, 1926-1927), Two volumes, Volume 2, Marriages, page 63, Sarah Farnsworth and John Stone marriage entry, 7 December 1698, "at Concord".

This is an entry in a transcribed town record book for Groton, Massachusetts, so it is a Derivative Source with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the marriage of Sarah Farnsworth and John Stone in Concord.

Sarah (Nutting) Farnsworth (1663-1731) was the daughter of John and Sarah (Eggleton) Nutting of Groton, Massachusetts, and the widow of Mathias Farnsworth (1650-1693), by whom she had six children.   She married, secondly, to John Stone  on 7 December 1698 in Concord, Massachusetts as her second husband.  John Stone (1658-1735) was the son of Simon and Mary (Whipple) Stone of Watertown. John and Sarah (Nutting) Stone had two children.  

John and Sarah (Nutting) Stone are my 7th great-grandparents, through their son James Stone (1702-1783), who married  Mary Farwell (1709-1804) in 1726 in Groton, Massachusetts.
