In Reply to: Johann Andreas Weatherwax by Dianne Rutherford of 722

Andreas Widerwachs 1700-1783 was the son of the immigrant;
Johan Henrich C. Widerwachs.They arrived in 1710 in NY colony with the Palatines.
Andreas married twice and produced 19 children.
Anna Elizabeth Weatherwax,child 7 of 9 by his 1st wife was born 21 Feb 1735,in Rhinebeck,Dutchess co.NY. Her birth and baptism is recorded in the records of St. Peters Lutheran Church on 9 Apr 1735. This church is also known as the Stone Church.
She married: Jacob Snyder C1755(I have no marriage record)
their children were:
1. Elizabeth b:2 May 1758
2. Andries b:1 May 1763
3. Jacob b:6 May 1765
4. Henrickus b:8 May 1768
5. Catharina b:10 Apr 1773
There may be others I havent found as yet.
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. (
How are you related to the Weatherwax/Snyder families?
