Re: Margaret Weatherwax and Stephen Tompkins
My book: The Weatherwax Genealogy 1710-1930 does not have the parentage of Stephen Tompkins, although it does track his descendants because they are also Weatherwax descendants. My suggestion is that you need to scour various Church book records for Dutchess co. NY. I show Stephen b: 30 Jul 1772 Dutchess co. Margaret Martha Weatherwax b: 15 Aug 1775. Her parents were Johan Henrich Weatherwax and Catharina Collins resided mostly in Columbia co NY. Since NY had no viable vitals records law until 1880 Church book are the primary source for birth,marriage and deaths.
Since Stephen and Margaret moved to Herkimer co. NY after son Moses was born in 1795, church records in Herkimer county may provde you with some clues
Both Stephen and Margaret are buried in Barnes cemetery,Norway,Herkimer co. NY
