The online catalog of Jeffrey Tillou Antiques displays a photo of a very fine framed decorated birth & marriage record of Cornelius Adams (born 1 December 1882) and Rebecca Davis (born 22 March 1787) who were married on 7 June 1804, probably in Massachusetts.
On the date of my writing this message, a photo of this decorated record is still available online at:
but it may be taken offline soon. In the event it is taken offline, I have downloaded it and will be happy to send a copy freely by email to Adams & Davis family researchers. Someone in the families ought to have it, which is why I’m keeping a copy of it and posting about it. It is too good to be missed by the families. It would be a very great shame and injustice were it to be missed by them. It certainly does have extensive genealogy, family, and artistic value.
This same decorated record is also pictured in an advertisement on p. 15 of the July-August 2013 issue of ANTIQUES magazine, which is where I first found it.

If it were a handsome decorated birth & marriage record of a 19th century Pease couple in my line, I’d certainly hope someone would do the same for me. Call it a simple, but appropriate, genealogy good deed.
