Tompkins Budway Lineage

Links show where write up has been completed. If any are of particular interest, please email me at and I will consider re-prioritizing my writing.

Some research does extend beyond 5x Great Grandparents. I am waiting until I’ve completed all the writings up to this generation to extend to the next generations.

  • From Nova Scotia, to Maine, to Eastern Massachusetts – this family slowly worked their way south. The Tompkins line is strong in the US with the main branch in the Hudson Valley. Some worked their way back to Canada – an effort is underway to connect the main branch with our branch.

The Broadway/Budway lineage adds some French Canadian to our heritage.  It also includes the first college graduate to my maternal lineage – Emeline Tompkins attended Teacher’s College at Salem Normal School, what is now Salem State University. Her teaching career brought her to Goshen MA where she met and married Stewart Mollison.
