Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1693 Birth Record for Dinah Rice in Marlborough, Mass.

 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 birth record for Dinah Rice in Marlborough, Massachusetts Bay:

The birth record is at the top of the Rice listings on this page:  

The transcription of this record is:

"RICE, Dinah, d. Edmond and Rutth, Oct. 15, 1693."

The source citation for this marriage record is:

Franklin P. Rice (editor), Vital Records of Marlborough, Massachusetts, to the End of the Year 1849 (Boston, Mass. : Franklin P. Rice, 1908), Births, page 154, Dinah Rice entry, daughter of Edmond and Rutth, 15 October 1693.

This town record book is a Derivative Source, with Primary Information and Direct Evidence as to the names, birth date and place. 

Dinah Rice (1693-1725) was the daughter of Edmund and Ruth (Parker) Rice of Marlborough.  She married Nathan Brigham (1693-1784) on 24 December 1717 in Marlborough, and they had five children.

Nathan and Dinah (Rice) Brigham are my 6th great-grandparents, through their son Moses Brigham (1723-1769), who married Mehitable Grout (1722-1795) in 1749. 


NOTE:  The images don't show up in Feedly for some reason.
