I got in touch with the town clerk of Mansfield, who found my 5x great-grandfather Elisha Freeman in their vital records as born on 10 August 1747. So I sent in my request and got not only his birth record but the births/death of his older siblings and his parent’s marriage. Unfortunately it isn’t the most legible.
