Thank you, Jeremy,

The marriage date appears to have been updated in the index, now reads "7 January 1652." I could not read the day in the image. I left the date in the narrative as 6 January 1651/2 and used the NEHGR article as the date reference.

The FamilySearch film roll header says "Town of Scituate," so I added your source as a reference for the location.

Does that work for you? --Gene
