More Births than Baptisms

See the source image

What decade was there finally more births added to the church than baptisms?
a.                  1920’s
b.                  1860’s
c.                   1940’s
d.                  1890’s
Yesterday’s answer:
C   Tompkins
Identified only as “Tompkins,” the suspect was apparently a silversmith who claimed to have told others of his intent to kill Boggs. So confident was the citizen committed of his guilt that they offered a $200 reward for his arrest. Governor Reynolds authorized an additional $200 for his arrest and another $300 for his conviction. An advertisement in the Jeffersonian Republican that ran on May 14, 1842, noted that “on the evening of the assassination, [he] was seen in the vicinity of Independence—which with many other corroborating circumstances, leaves no doubt of his guilt.”
