Treasure Chest Thursday - 1659 Birth Record for Jonathan Thurston (1659-1740) in Newport, Rhode Island

 It's time to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings for Treasure Chest Thursday.

The treasure today is the 1659 birth record of Jonathan Thurston in Newport, Rhode Island:

The birth record for Jonathan is the fifth one listed in the Thurston section:

The transcription of this record for Jonathan Thurston is:

[Thurston] Jonathan, [born] Jan 4, 1658-9"

The source citation for this record is:

"Rhode Island, Vital Records Extracts, 1636-1899," indexed database and digital image, (, Volume 7, "Newport County, Friends, Ministers Births, Baptisms, Marriages, Deaths," page 77, Jonathan Thurston entry, 4 January 1658/9

Jonathan Thurston (1659-1740) was born 4 January 1658/9 in Newport, Rhode Island, the son of Edward and Elizabeth (Mott) Thurston.  He married (1) Susanna --?-- (c1659-c1711), in about 1678, probably in Little Compton, Rhode Island; (2) Sarah --?-- (c1670-c1735) in about 1712, probably in Little Compton, Rhode Island.  

Jonathan and Susanna (--?--) Thurston are my 7th great-grandparents.  I am descended through their daughter, Abigail Thurston (1700-1770), who married William White (c1708-b1780) in 1729 in Little Compton.
