Treasure Chest Thursday — 1670 Birth of Joseph Farwell (1670-1740) in Chelmsford, Massachusetts

 It’s Treasure Chest Thursday – an opportunity to look in my digital picture information to see what treasures I can discover for my household historical past and family tree musings.

The treasure right now is the 1670 beginning entry for Joseph Farwell within the Chelmsford, Massachusetts city very important document ebook:

The beginning entry is about half down the record for Farwell:

The wedding document transcription is:

“[Farwell] Joseph, s. Joseph and Hannah, 24 : 5m : 1670.”

  The supply quotation for this document is:

City of Chelmsford, Massachusetts, Very important Data of Chelmsford, Massachusetts to the Yr 1850 (Salem, Mass. : The Essex Institute, 1914), Births, web page 60, Joseph Farwell entry, 24 July 1670.

That is an entry in a transcribed city document ebook for Chelmsford, Massachusetts, so it’s a Spinoff Supply with Major Data and Direct Proof of the beginning of Joseph Farwell.

Joseph Farwell (1670-1740) was the son of Joseph and Hannah (Discovered) Farwell of Chelsmford.  He married 
Hannah Colburn (1673-1741), daughter of Thomas and Hannah (Rolfe) Colburn, on 23 January 1696 in Chelmsford. Joseph and Hannah (Colburn) Farwell had ten youngsters.

Joseph and Hannah (Colburn) Farwell are my seventh great-grandparents, by way of their daughter Mary Farwell (1709-1804), who married  James Stone (1702-1783), in 1726 in Groton, Massachusetts.
