A helpful standard ref for Palatine families is:
"The Palatine Families of New York 1710" by: Henry Z Jones.
The Wiederwachs family is in volume two around pages 1163-1165. You will also find the Snyder families there and there are excellent cross references to inter marriage in the index. This 2 volume set is still in print from Picton Press,Camden,Me. (www.pictonpress.com).
How are you related to the Weatherwax/Snyder families?
