 I am looking for birth records for any of probably several children of Sarah Simpson( Simpson-13581) and John Thompson (Thompson-57399) and alternate spellings) and a death record for John Thompson, his death was before 1735. 

He died and his wife Sarah Simpson Thompson remarried James Campbell (Campbell-15920 )in 1732-1734 in the Londonderry area. After their 1735 marriage; they moved in 1741 to Cherry Valley, now Otsego county, then Albany county New York colony.

The family was living in Cherry Valley at the time of the Cherry Valley Massacre 11 November 1778.  

Reliable records exist for the children of Sarah and James, but none have been found so far for the children from her first marriage. 

I am attempting to connect a descendant of John Thompson to Jane Thompson (Thompson-6636) my husband's 4 X grt Grandmother. 

Her husband was John McClellan son of William McClellan (McClellan-277) who lived in Cherry Valley from approx 1768 to November 1778, when he left and joined the British forces in Canada. 

He had bought land in 1773 from Robert Campbell son of  James Campbell and Sarah Simpson Thompson Campbell.

There are a lot of other connections between families in the same area, far too many to include in this question.

I found this book interesting when researching my own Scotch-Irish Presbyterian ancestors who were on the same ship(s): https://archive.org/details/willeysbookofnut00will_0/page/76/mode/2up.  I see John noted at least once, but didn't do a thorough search.

I also had a look on Americanancestors, behind a paywall, but I don't see anything that adds to the info already available in FamilySearch.

Sometimes relationships are identified in other documents, land records etc. I wonder if you may find something useful through the New Hampshire Society of Genealogists https://www.nhsog.org/resources or the New Hampshire Historical Society https://www.nhhistory.org/Research/Genealogy

Thanks, I have Wiley's book, there are several mentions of a John Thompson, or perhaps more likely several John Thompsons in that book and other documents.

Found New Hampshire Provincial and State Papers on line at the State Archives so i will check that when I have time
