Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1692 Marriage of Edmund Rice and Ruth Parker in Marlborough, 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 Marriage entry for Edmund Rice and Ruth Parker in Marlborough in 1692 in the Torrey's Marriages book:
The marriage entry is  the third  one from the bottom of the page:

The transcription of this record is:
