I’m trying to trace the lineage of John Tompkins if MD & PA.
I know that there was a Benjamin Tompkins B:1792 and wife Lydia living in Fawn Grove, which is across the PA/MD border.

I do have a further information on the Tompkins family of John, Mary, Paul Ezekiel and John. I’ve been trying to locate his parents. Is there any chance that your research shows John Born about 1833 and his sister Angelina were born into Benjamin’s family?


Information that I have on Benjamin is as follows”
