Treasure Chest Thursday - 1756 Marriage of Jasper Partridge and Marcy Rice in Barre, Massachusetts

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

The treasure today is the 1756 marriage entry for Jasper Partridge and Marcy Rice in the Barre, Worcester County, Massachusetts vital records:
The marriage record is near the middle of the Partride items on the image:

The transcription of this record is::

"[PARTRIDGE] Jasper and Marcy Rice, Oct. 12, 1756."

The source citation for this record is (using Evidence Explained 4th edition template):

Vital records of Barre, Massachusetts, to the end of the year 1849 (Worcester, Mass. : F. P. Rice, 1903), Marriages, page 183, Jasper Partridge and Marcy Rice marriage entry, 12 October 1756.

This is an entry abstracted from the Barre, Massachusetts town records.  It is a Derivative Source, with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of Jasper and Marcy's marriage date and place.

Jasper Partridge (1732-1821) was born 15 April 1732 in Medway, now Norfolk county, Massachusetts, the son of Jonathan and Elizabeth (Learnard) Partridge.  Jasper died in 1821 in Gustavus, Trumbull County, Ohio.  He married (1) Marcy Rice (1737-1767), the daughter of Jonas and Jean (Hall) Rice, on 12 October 1756 in Barre, Worcester County, Massachusetts.  They had seven children.  After Marcy died, Jasper married (2) Joy Nichols (1736-????) in about 1769 in Vermont.  They had four children.

Jasper and Marcy (Rice) Partridge are my 6th great-grandparents, through their son Thomas Partridge (1758-1828) who married Hannah Wakeman (1763-1814).
