What's the next step?

Classification: Query
Surnames: Moore
I ran into a the end of the line with one person in my tree, but I think there's a way to get past it, but I need suggestions about how to proceed.

I found a "Find-a-grave" tombstone with the name and dates of one of my 3rd great grandfathers in a church cemetery. The cemetery has a lot of other headstones with the same surname (Moore), but no obvious connection to any of them. I am trying to figure out who his parents are. I would assume a good place to start is with the records of the church - look for a baptism or something. So, what now...

(...if this helps - Garret Moore b:5 Dec 1818 d:26 Feb 1898 - Interred at St. Paul's Lutheran Cemetery in Red Hook, NY)

Do I contact the church? Does the state have these records? (New York state does not appear to have done statewide collections until the late 1800s). I think I found a guy who collected these records and is selling them as books...

Dunno - thoughts? Obviously, I'm kinda of a rookie :)
