Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1705 Marriage Record of Micall Medcalf and Ledia White in Mendon, Massachusetts

 I looked 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 1705 marriage record of Micall Medcalf and Ledia White in Mendon, Massachusetts Bay:

The marriage record is near the middle of the right-hand page:

The transcription of this marriage record is:

"Micall Medcalf and Ledia White ware married the 21 of March 1704-5"

The source citation for this birth record is:

"Massachusetts, U.S., Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988," indexed database and digital images, (, Mendon, "Town Records and Earmarks, with Births, Marriages and Deaths," page 69 (image 42 of 106), Micall Medcalf and Ledia White marriage entry, 21 March 1704/5.

This record is probably an Original Source, with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the marriage of Micall Medcalf and Ledia White in Mendon, Massachusetts..  

Michael Metcalf (1680-1761) was born 10 October 1680 to Michael and Elizabeth (Bowers) of Medfield, Massachusetts.  He married Lydia White (1686-????) on 21 March 1704/5 in Mendon, Massachusetts.  Lydia was born 10 May 1686  in Mendon, the daughter of Joseph and Lydia (Copeland) White.  Michael and Lydia had 6 children.

Michael and Lydia (White) Metcalf are my 7th great-grandparents.  I am descended through their son Michael Metcalf (1706-1771) 1728 to Melatiah Hamant (1704-1751).
