Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1672 Baptism of Ruth Parker (1672-1720) in Roxbury, 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 Baptism entry for Ruth Parker in Roxbury, Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1672 in the Roxbury Vital Records book:
The marriage entry is  the first one at the top of the page:

The transcription of this record is:

"PARKER, Ruth, d. John, bp. 27 : m : 1672. C.R. 1."

The source citation for this record is:

Vital Records of Roxbury, Massachusetts to the end of the year 1849 (Salem, Mass.: The Essex Institute, 1925, 2 Volumes), Births, page 268, Ruth Parker baptism entry, 27 x month 1672.

This is an entry in a digitized published book for births, marriages and deaths in Roxbury, Massachusetts, which was derived from town record books and other records.  It is a Derivative Source with Secondary Information and Direct Evidence of the baptism of  Ruth Parker.
This record is for the baptism of Ruth Parker.  Other records indicate she was born on 23 October 1672.  Ruth Parker (1672-1726) was the daughter John and Sarah (--?--) Parker of Roxbury.  She married Edmund Rice (1663-1726), who was the son of Samuel and Elizabeth (King) Rice of Marlborough, Massachusetts.  They married  on 15 November 1692 in Marlborough.  

Edmund and Ruth (Parker) Rice are my 7th great-grandparents, through their daughter Dinah Rice (1693-1725) who married Nathan Brigham (1693-1784)  in 1717.
