Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1725 Death Entry For Mary (Ockington) Harrington (1669-1725) of Waltham, 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 1725 Death entry for Mary (Ockington) Harrington in the Waltham, Massachusetts vital records book:

The death entry is the 11th entry from the bottom in the Harrington listings:

The transcription of this record is:

"[HARRINGTON] Mary, w. Edw[ard], Oct. 23, 1725, in 55th y. G.R."

The source citation for this record is:

Vital records of Waltham, Massachusetts, to the year 1850 (Boston, Mass. : New-England Historic Genealogical Society, 1904), Deaths, page 270, Mary Harrington entry, 23 October 1725.

This is an entry in a published Watertown vital record book.  It is a Derivative Source with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the death of Mary Harrington on 23 October 1725 in Waltham, Massachusetts.  
Edward Harrington (1669-1736) married Mary Ockington (1669-1725) in 1692 in Watertown, Massachusetts Bay Colony.  They had nine children between 1693 and 1711, all recorded in Watertown.

Edward and Mary (Ockington) Harrington  are my 7th great-grandparents, through their daughter Mary Harrington (1693-1774) who married  Joseph Grout (1683-1758) in 1717.
