Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1834 Death Record of Lambert Brigham (1794-1834) in Westborough, 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 1834 death record entry for Lambert Brigham in the Westborough, Massachusetts town records book:

The marriage record is the 9th entry on the left-hand page of the image in the 1834 section:

The transcription of this record is:

"[1834] May 5  Mr. Lambert Brigham - consumption, [age] 40."

The source citation for this record is:

 "Massachusetts, U.S., Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988," indexed database and digital image, (, Westborough, Church Records, page 248, Record of Deaths, image 159 of 332, Mr. Lambert Brigham, 5 May 1834, age 40.

Lambert Brigham (1794-1834) was the 7th child and sixth son of Phineas Brigham (1755-1802) and Lydia Batherick (1752-1795).  He married Sophia Buck (1797-1882) on 17 February, 1817 in Sterling, Massachusetts.  They had three children.

This is probably an Original Source record, from the Westborough church.  It is Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the death.

Lambert and Sophia (Buck) Brigham are my 3rd great-grandparents through their daughter, Sophia Newton (1834-1923) who married Edward Hildreth (1831-1899) in 1852 in Northborough, Massachusetts.
