I'm probably a bit more familiar with Madison County vs Oneida, having grown up there. Whitestone is likely Whitestown as I'm sure you already suspect. Birth and Marriage records were not required to be kept by specific counties or towns until the very late 1800's, so church baptismal and marriage records are about the only source you have to work with.
I do not know much about what churches existed during that time period but I would concentrate my efforts on researching Judge Hugh White. If they came with him to Whitestown, chances are if you find out what church he belonged to, you will find your answers. Hopefully, the GenWeb site for Oneida County has enough published on him to point you in the right direction.
Also, I'm sure the Oneida County Historical Society (located in Rome, NY I believe) could also answer many of your questions. I also see that some of the local historians for various townships of Oneida County have made some postings on the OC GenWeb site, you might try dropping them a note.
Best of luck!
