EXPLANATIONS

The following records of births, marriages and deaths

include all entries to be found in the books of record kept

by the town clerks; in the church records; in the cemetery

inscriptions; and in private records found in family Bibles,

etc. These records are printed in a condensed form in

which every essential particular has been preserved. All

duplication of the town clerk's record has been eliminated,

but differences in entry and other explanatory matter

appear in brackets. Parentheses are used when they occur

in the original record; also to indicate the maiden name of

a married woman.

When places other than Carlisle and Massachusetts are

named in the original records, they are given in the printed

copy. Marriages and intentions of marriage are printed

under the names of both parties. In all records the original

spelling of names is followed, and in the alphabetical

arrangement the various forms should be examined, as

items about the same family may be found under different

spellings.
