Treasure Chest Thursday - 1689 Birth of Mary Tripp (1689-a1739) in Dartmouth, Massachusetts

 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 1689 birth record of Mary Tripp in Dartmouth, Massachusetts:

The birth record for  Mary Tripp is in the Tripp section on the right-hand page:

The transcription of these records is:

"[TRIPP] Mary d. of Joseph                        22 Aug 1689"

The source citation for this record is:

"Massachusetts, U.S., Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988," indexed database and digital images, (, "Dartmouth Births, Marriages and Deaths," page 171 (image 89 of 2331), Mary Tripp birth entry, 22 August 1689, daughter of Joseph.

This record is a Derivative Source, with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the birth of Mary Tripp.  The Original source is probably a Dartmouth town record book that is not now extant.

Mary Tripp (1689-a1739) was born 22 August 1689 in Dartmouth, the daughter of Joseph and Mehitable (Fish) Tripp.  She married Thomas Wate (1683-a1743) on 25 January 1710/11 in Dartmouth.  He was born 22 April 1683, probably in Dartmouth, the son of Ruben and Tabitha (Launders) Wate.  

Thomas and Mary (Tripp) Wate are my 7th great-grandparents.  I am descended through their daughter Meribah Waite (1720-1803), who married  Benjamin Soule (1719-1803) in 1742.
