The Wynkoop Chronicles.
was begot by a flash of lightning."
... Old English Proverb.
Have you ever wondered what our early ancestors were like, what kinds of things they dreamed about, how they faced emergencies and hardships? Have you ever shivered at the thought of leaving the old country and crossing a stormy, pirate infested ocean in early spring to make a new home in the howling wilderness?
If you have, this is where you will find their stories. In the months to come I'll be publishing here as many unique and interesting Wynkoop stories as I can find. The authors are various. Some of these stories have been published elsewhere in little known publications, and others will have been written especially for this page.
Some of these stories will be small polished gems, while others may just be bare-bones timelines with links to the published material that back up the asserted facts. The stories will vary as much as the authors themselves. Which is where you, gentle reader, come in.
If you have a family story that you think needs telling, or know of one that I seem to be unaware of, (and believe me there's a lot of them out there), please contact me at [email protected]. If the story is interesting or unique enough I'd love to publish it here. The Wynkoops are a large family and each family has a story to tell. Let's share them.
