  • Notes 
    • On April 30, 1702, John Tompkins was appointed to "beat the drum constantly every Lord's Day if occasion required and at other times when it is needful, and to keep the drum in repair; and the said inhabitants do promise to pay him therefor nine pence a piece every one." [Ancestors and Descendants of Sarah Eleanor Ladue, citation details below.]

      Among his great-grandsons was Daniel D. Tompkins (1774-1825), sixth Vice-President of the United States (1817-25).

      John Tompkins (b. 1684)
      Joshua Tompkins (1705-1736) = Sarah Ogden (1705-1739)
      Jonathan Tompkins (1736-1823) = Sarah Hyatt (1740-1810)
      Daniel D. Tompkins (1774-1825)

      Daniel D. Tompkins was also the fourth governor of New York State (1807-17). In 1815 he established the settlement on the eastern shore of Staten Island that came to be called Tompkinsville, and he died there only three months after leaving office as Vice President.
