I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to Teresa (Wynkoop) Mock of Gulf Breeze, Florida, the publisher of The Wynkoops of Loudoun County, for her permission to publish this electronic version of the book. As noted in the section called A Word About Copyright Issues all rights to this original work belong to her and are used here with her express permission. The Wynkoops of Loudoun County is a terrific genealogy which sheds light on the descendants of Cornelius Wynkoop, the son of Philip Wynkoop of Montgomery County, (then Philadelphia County), Pa. [You'll excuse my intense interest in the subject, since I too am one of Philip's descendants.] Verna Brockhurst, with the aid of Teresa Bryson, (as she was known then), and countless others, searched through wills, letters, courthouse records, newspaper reports, and personal interviews to create this terrific family history. In creating a family history of your own you couldn't go wrong in choosing this as a model.
This genealogy has essentially been out of print and unavailable, except through Inter-library Loan, since 1977. It's about time it saw the light of day again.
A few notes on this edition:
I have endeavored to present this manuscript in much the same format as the original edition. HTML, however, has its limitations and there are places where I've had to make compromises. Hopefully this has not affected the sense of the book nor the relationships between various family members as intended. As far as editing has gone, I've tried to keep that to a bare minimum, standardizing some capitalization, (eg. (See for (see or (See ), some abreviations, (eg. mos. for ms. or mo.), and fixing two dates in the original genealogy which placed the marriages of Cornelius Wynkoop's two wives, Elizabeth Covenhoven and Cornelia van Pelt in the 1800s instead of the 1700s where they more correctly belong. Everything else is pretty much as it was originally published back in 1977.
[Special Note: Cornelius and Cornelia Van Pelt Wynkoop both came from Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, (then part of Philadelphia County), and not Bucks County as herein stated. If they had been from Bucks County their marriage record and the baptismal records for their children would have been found in the Dutch Reformed Church of North and Southampton of Bucks County, instead of Abington Presbyterian Church, located in Abington, present day Montgomery County. This is a distance of approximately 7.2 miles or 16 minutes travel time nowadays. To put this in even more perspective, the distance from Huntingdon Valley, Lower Moreland Township, Montgomery County, where most of the Wynkoop children settled and Newtown, Bucks County where Garret Wynkoop and his sons Garret and Nicholas moved to around 1724 is only 11.5 miles or about 21 minutes driving time nowadays. Garret may have changed Counties way back when but he didn't move far from his family. - chw]
Both Teresa and I hope that you will get a lot of use out of this book, which before now has only been available to a select few in widely varying parts of the country. It's about time that this seminal work of Wynkoop Genealogy became more widely available.
The publication of this book marks the end of all the previously published Wynkoop family specific genealogies that I'm aware of. However that doesn't mean that we've seen the end of all the Wynkoop research. More is coming everyday. For example, I am glad to announce that Carol Wynkoop Fite has recently published a terrific new Wynkoop genealogy, Tracing Their Steps. Some of the Descendants of Cornelis Evertsz Wynkoop which builds on The Wynkoops of Loudoun County and traces the descendants of Cornelius Wynkoop and Cornelia van Pelt's son, Philip. Carol's book is the result of 16 years worth of intensive research and is a real work of scholarship. It's packed to the brim with family photos, wills, indentures, maps, marriage records, probate records, census records, newspaper articles, etc., all reproduced in full detail for the interested family researcher. I stand in awe of her accomplishment.
Carol can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are other family genealogies in which the Wynkoops figure prominently and I'll be bringing them online as time and research permits. In the meantime, enjoy the bounty you have before you.
One final note: page numbers in this genealogy appear at the bottom of each page, not the top. This means that, for example, the information on page 58 actually appears on the page above the number 58 and not below it. This can be extremely confusing, as I learned to my cost, and I would suggest you keep it in mind when listing the information here in your source notes.
Best of luck,

THE WYNKOOP FAMILY
LOUDOUN COUNTY, VIRGINIA
This genealogy is a tribute to those hardy people who were part of the backbone in the foundation of and progress in Loudoun County, Virginia.
As the Wynkoop family came to Loudoun County from Bucks County, Pennsylvania, the genealogy will start one generation back from Cornelius and Cornelia VanPelt Wynkoop of Loudoun County, Virginia.
Cornelius had three sisters who married VanSicklers and one sister who married Francis Tytus (Titus). They, with the VanPelt family, all came to Loudoun County at the same time as Cornelius and Cornelia VanPelt Wynkoop and settled in the North Fork, Mt. Gilead area, along Goose Creek and its tributaries.
The following information is from the Wynkoop Genealogy by Richard Wynkoop, Brooklyn, N.Y. - 1904.
On page 68 "#164 - Cornelius Wynkoop (Philip #48; Gerrit #5; Cornelius #1). He is mentioned in 1771 in Will of his father. He is said to have removed to Loudoun County, Virginia. He is supposed to have married and had a family but the name of his wife has not been discovered."
A Bible Record had been inserted after Page 68 in the copy of the Wynkoop Genealogy at the NSDAR Library, Washington, D.C. This Bible Record was presented by a DAR member with her application papers for membership as her Revolutionary ancestor was Cornelius Wynkoop.
"Cornelius Wynkoop, b. Dec. 1, 1754; d. Feb. 20, 1824; m. (1) Elizabeth Covenhoven Nov. 12, 1780. She d. Sept. 7, 1781; he m. (2) Cornelia VanPelt June 10, 1784. She was b. Sept. 5, 1767."
This genealogy will start with that Bible Record and Bucks County Presbyterian Church Records; then the first land records of Cornelius Wynkoop in Loudoun County, Virginia, dated 13 May 1796; 8 Aug. 1796; 1 May 1797, etc.
Some of the elder members of the Wynkoop family still living in Loudoun County have taken a keen interest in this genealogy and have contributed Bible records, family notes and papers, letters, obituaries, and their own personal knowledge to its compilation. Through Mrs. Agnes Orrison Kirby, granddaughter of Levi Harrison Wynkoop, many of her cousins gave us valuable information. Mrs. Kirby assisted me in the research on deeds, wills, cemetery listings, etc. Miss Agnes Pleasant Wynkoop, daughter of Levi Wynkoop, sister of Agnes Kirby's mother, lived with her nieces and a nephew
for many years and died early this year in her 90th year. Over the past few years she accompanied us on motor trips to Loudoun County and guided us to all the homes and areas where her family lived, which enabled us to tie the family into the areas as stated in the genealogy.
Mrs. Frances Orrison Berry, Mrs. Kirby's sister; Mrs. Maxine Otley Fleming, also granddaughter to Levi Harrison Wynkoop, cousin of Agnes & Frances; Miss Ruth Hannah Wynkoop, daughter of John and Ruth Hannah (Wynkoop) Wynkoop, cousins; and the Mary Ella Wynkoop McMichael family,
descended from Philip Henry Wynkoop; have all made very valuable contributions.
Mrs. Laura Jenkins Saunders, granddaughter of Charles Washington Wynkoop - Wynkoop-Birch records.
Mrs. Percy LeRoy Milstead Wynkoop and her son, Harry Delaney Wynkoop, descendant of Joseph and Elizabeth Lowe Wynkoop. Mrs. Percy Wynkoop has the Havenner-Milstead Bible records of her family. Harry Wynkoop furnished information on his Wynkoop cousins.
Mrs. Mae Reed Warner, descendant of George W. & Virginia Frances Wynkoop Colbert, has the Colbert family bible.
Hazel T. Allyn, who compiled "Our John Brown", in which there is the Brown-Carlyle line.
Howard J. Lowe, who helped establish the Wynkoop~Lowe line; he remembered his Aunt Elizabeth Lowe Wynkoop, wife of Joseph Wynkoop. Mrs. Esther Virts Lowe is descended from the Virts of Loudoun County and is a member of Freedom Hill Chapter, DAR.
Other Sources of Information:
Loudoun County Courthouse Records (deeds, wills, early marriages, births, deaths, etc.); Loudoun County U.S., Census Records from 1810 to 1880; NSDAR Library Records, Washington, D.C. - birth, death, marriage, cemetery, etc., many of which were done by Mrs. Walter Towne Jewell.
An allied families section has been included since so much information was given with the Wynkoop data.
All the Wynkoop families we contacted in Loudoun County were traced back to the children of Cornelius and Cornelia VanPelt Wynkoop.

"George W. Wynkoop Family, Berryville, Clark County, Va. Died: June 25, 1881, Nellie B. Wynkoop, aged 1 yr. 1 mo. June 29, 1881, Clifton S. Wynkoop, aged 8 yr. 9 mos., 4 ds.
June 30, 1881, James F. Wynkoop, aged 16 yrs 8 mos. 12 ds. July 2, 1881, Joseph A. Wynkoop, aged 14 yr. 11 mos. 19 ds.
The universal heart of the community, in the vicinity of Berryville, Clarke Co., Va., has
been greatly touched by the deep affliction of the family of Mr. George & Susan A. Wynkoop - formerly of Loudoun Co., Va., but recently purchased property in Clarke, where they now reside. The family, consisting of the parents and ten healthy children, was attacked by diphtheria of the most malignant type, a few weeks since. Excepting the father and eldest son, all became victims of the dreadful disease and within eight days four of the children had been gathered to their Father's house on high, and their bodies laid beneath the sod of a shaded vale near the
house of the family, there to await the resurrection.
"The first to go was 'Darling little Nellie', the youngest and pet of the household. The Pet
not simply because she was the baby, but also on account of her sweet joyous disposition.
The next was Clifton, a happy prattling three-year old giving amusement and joy to the household by his innocent, sprightly childish expression and sport. Jimmy was the
next to yield to the ravages of the pitiless disease; he was an unusually bright, happy and intelligent young man; during his illness he embraced the Savior, from which time on to his death he was rejoicing in a full assurance of his salvation, and exhorting those around him, and sending messages to his absent friends to meet him in heaven. While suffering extremely, he was asked if it was not hard to die', to which he answered 'No! No!' 'Jesus can make a dying bed as soft as downy pillows are."
"The last to go was Joseph, a child of joy and promise to his family. He wanted to go, saying 'I want to go to be with little Nellie and my brothers. Great sympathy was felt and manifested by all classes of persons for this deeply afflicted family, but owing to the nature of the disease, comparatively few persons used their personal attention on the sick. Of those who did, Mr. Robert Sowers deserves special commendation. At the risk of his own life and sacrifice of the benefits of the harvest season, he stayed night and day nursing the sick and burying the dead.
"The parents being Christians found the consolations of Israel sufficient to enable them to bear up with fortitude under the great bereavement. Heaven grant to continue them grace sufficient for their trials and may parents and children be found ready when the Master calls, to go up to meet the dear ones who have gone on before."

Obituary: Samuel Wynkoop - Falls Dead in Garden - Venerable Citizen of Bluemont Succumbs to Heart Trouble on Thursday, June 27, 1918.
Mr. Samuel Wynkoop, one of the oldest and most highly esteemed citizens of Bluemont. Dropped dead from heart trouble in the garden at his home on Thursday of last week. He would have been 80 years of age during the present month, and had given no intimation of feeling otherwise than in his usual good health.
Mr. Wynkoop had long been a valued citizen of the community and leaves a host of sincere friends. He was a consistent member of the Methodist church and had lived an upright life
worthy of imitation.
He is survived by his wife and one son, Mr. Ernest Wynkoop, besides a large family connection in the county.
His funeral took place on Saturday, Rev. W. E. Woolf officiating. The burial was at Ebenezer

12311 Leola F., b. Mar. 12, 1868, d. Apr. 28, 1895 at home near Snickersville, Va. Buried Ebenezer Cemetery.
Obit: Wynkoop - At her home near Snickersville on the night of the 28th
of April (1895), Leola, only daughter of S. T. Wynkoop, in the 27th year of her age.
Such a short time, it seems, since little Bessie was taken home to bloom in endless youth, and now the last dear daughter has been called up higher, leaving sad hearts and blighted hopes
behind her. Her health had been bad for five or six years, and even then, unknown to her loved ones, the dread disease, spinal menengitis, which carried off her little brother, was fastening on her . . . She was converted in her 15th year, under the ministry of Rev. E. H. Henry and united with the church at Woodgrove, ever since which time she has been a true, faithful, consistent Christian and the living Saviour who kept her this far, did not desert her in her hour of need. . . . As sick as she was herself, her living heart seemed always going out after her ailing mother, and her frequent questions showed how she longed to be up and caring for "Ma".
On Wednesday her body was taken to the church at Snickersville, where she had so often gone up with the multitude that kept holy day and in the altar before which she had so often knelt to commemorate her Savior's dying love. Her funeral was preached by her pastor, Rev. Mr. Saunders, from the last clause of the 1st Verse, 21st Chapter of Revelations, after which, all that was mortal was laid to rest in the beautiful "God's Acre" at Ebenezer . . .

1894 - Death of Mr. Wynkoop - Mr. Garrett Wynkoop, one of Woodburn's most aged and highly
respected citizens, was found dead in his bed on
Monday morning last. Mr. Wynkoop had been in ill health for several years, but on the previous evening appeared in his usual vigor. Failing to respond to breakfast call, his daughter entered his room and made the sad discovery of his death. He had been a member of the M.E. Church, South, for probably over half a century and lived a model Christian life. He was held
in the loftiest esteem by all who met him in his daily walks of life, and his death will be a sad blow to the community in which he lived.
His remains were interred in Harmony Burying Ground in this town on Tuesday, his pastor, Rev. Dr. House officiating. Further services to his memory, we learn, will be held in the Grove Church at Woodburn next Sunday morning.

When Agnes Pleasant Wynkoop lived on Black Oak Ridge she attended Silcott Springs School, which was across the road from her home "Wynmont". Her teacher was Emma Piggott, who lived nearby. Mr. and Mrs. Sanders were also neighbors. She described her home, which is still standing, as follows:
The front of the house faces the driveway, which runs from the road along the front and around the side. The view from the front is of the fields below the driveway with the mountains in the distance. There is a steep sloping lawn from the porch to the driveway, landscaped with flowers and shrubs. At the corner where the driveway rounded the side, there is a hitching post with a long flight of stairs up to the porch. At that time the porch had a lovely fancy railing.
The dining room and kitchen were in the frame part of the house with three bedrooms, one over the parlor, one over the sitting room and one downstairs off the hall. There are two fireplace chimneys, one of which is very old. The house is still standing but is a tenant house now and

"John West came to Loudoun County around 1784, settling on 400 acres purchased by his father, William West, from Mahlon Kirkbride in 1764. The land lay on the northwest fork of Goose Creek and joined, the land of Kirkbride, willed to his sons, Timothy, et al, which has been previously touched on here. John West married Hannah Ball in 1791 and presumably built this house about the same time, on the southern end of the 400-acre tract, the northern end being occupied by his brother, William, Jr.

(Memories of Dranesville Inn) "We're the Oldest People in Hamilton" "We're the oldest people in Hamilton now that Mrs. Edna Shoemaker died," Bessie Ann Jenkins said. "I'm 90 or 91, July 31, 1886 - you figure it out," Albert Jenkins added.
"Well, I'm going to tell my age," Mrs. Jenkins said. "I'm 94."
"I was born at the old Dranesville Hotel, Old Drovers' Rest, they called it. My parents were Samuel and Mary Catherine Jenkins, they ran it as an inn for 40 years till they died." Mr. Jenkins began.
Mrs. Jenkins, a Loudoun native, a Wynkoop, was raised on a farm near Woodburn on Rt. 704 outside of Hamilton. They both say Loudoun was cattle country earlier.
"We have two sons, one in Arlington, one in California, seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren," Mrs. Jenkins said.

Letter written by Philip Henry Wynkoop to his brother Garrett in 1863 when he was stationed near Spotsylvania Court House, Virginia during the Civil War. The letter was found in the Bible of Mary Ella McMichael with the following note written by her on the margin: "Written by my father to his brother Garrett in 1863 - stationed near Spotsylvania C.H., Va."
"Dear Brother and Friends: I take my pen in hand once more to send you a few lines to let you know how I am at this time and where I am also. We are encamped 9 miles from Orange Court House in Orange County. Know in respect to myself I am enjoying good health, hoping when these few imperfect lines reach you and your family may find you all enjoying the same with blessing for I can truly say it is one amongst the foremost things in our existence. Garret I am glad to tell you that we have a good preacher in our batalion, his name is Duncin. He is an Episcopalian and as for myself I am no sectarian. I love to hear the gospel preached. It still brings to my heart joy and gladness, and even while I write these few lines I tell you I want you to tell my brothers and sisters at the Grove that there still remains a sort of grace in this vissel of mine. I do expect if I am faithful to death to wear a crown - which my Lord and Master will give me and not me only - but it is for you and for all who stand firmly on the watch walls of Zion - and fights faithful until the great Shepherd of the sheep shall call them home. I feel thankful the gospel still sounds sweet to my ears. Give my love to the Grove brothers and sisters and tell them to fight on, we shall soon all get home to wear our crown. I am in a hurry. I would like to write more I must stop for the want of time. Goody Bye. My love to you and family.

The following is extracted from a letter to me from Mrs. Loreine Collins Dietrich, 1421 East
19th St., Tulsa, Oklahoma 74120, November 1, 1973: "As you probably know, Richard Wynkoop was the first to publish any records on the family and in desperation published the information he had in 1884, knowing it was incomplete and that all of the data could not be documented. It brought the response that he expected and the family began pouring in names and dates for additions and corrections. He published a second book and finally the third book, of some size, with further corrections and additions. It was a footnote in this book that gave me my tie-in with the Wynkoop family."

then his daughter, Eleanor #1436." Note: Numbers used are those I am using in this genealogy. V. B.

GROVE METHODIST MEETING HOUSE
Woodburn, Loudoun County, Virginia
Location: From Leesburg, Route 15 south to Route 704, turn right on Route 769, and left on Route 803. It is a short distance to end of state maintained road (sign); Just before the sign on the left is a wooded, overgrown area which contains what is left of the Grove Cemetery. On one side of the cemetery is a lane and opposite the cemetery is the remains of what, we think, was the Grove Meeting House where they held the Methodist Classes mentioned in the text. This is in the Mt. Gilead area.
The walls of the "Grove Meeting House" are still standing, but the roof is gone. The building and the land are overgrown with vines and weeds. The walls were constructed of whole tree logs, very rough, large at one end tapering to the other end. Fieldstones were wedged between the logs to fill in the gaps and then mud-plastered. Later a white plaster was applied. The
foundation, including under the floor, is of fieldstones, with whole tree logs laid under rough planks for the floor. The building is about 20 feet square with several windows and two doors, one in front and one at left side rear. A clapboard siding was applied at one time and the boards remain on the right outside wall. The rear wall had been propped up. Handmade nails
were used for the siding and are still protruding from the logs on the other sides. There
is a log doorstep at the front door and flat fieldstones leading to the step.
The following reference is taken from the Leesburg, Virginia Methodist Church Records - Part 1, by Mrs. Walter Towne Jewell (loaned to Mrs. Jewell by Rev. Melvin Lee Steadman, Jr.) Earliest records not available.
I recorded those from 1832 to 1848 as so many of the Wynkoops and allied family members attended these classes.
"Conference year ending March 1839. - As Carr's Meeting House was destroyed by fire during past year and the Congregation at the Gap being small - it was judged most proper to have but one preaching place in the county, accordingly all the classes in the country were removed
to the Grove Meeting House, which is now the only appointment - at which place you preach on the last Sabbath morning of every month, and on the Wednesday two weeks succeeding. The Grove Meeting House is an unfinished building and is very uncomfortable, especially in winter - it ought by all means to be finished (and as Carr's Meeting House has been destroyed) the prospect of this object is fairer than heretofore. There seems to be a rising inclination on the part of the people to accomplish this matter, and by perseverance, I think the object may be affected - Success to the effort."
"Feby 1837-38 Official Returns . . . There are three appointments in the country attached to this charge - Carr's Meeting H., Grove, and Mountain Gap. At each of these places there is preaching every three months on Sabbath and once every six weeks on Wednesday - by this
arrangement you preach once a month on Sabbath and once every two weeks on Wednesday, in the Country."
"The trustees of Carr's Meeting House are David Carr. S. M. Boss, and James Harris.

HARMONY METHODIST CHURCH
Hamilton, Loudoun County, Virginia
Ref: Recollections of Richard Ruse - W.P.A. Records by Mrs. Walter Towne Jewell
"Harmony Church was built in 1833. Called the Hillsboro Circuit. There were about eight appointments: Hamilton, Waterford, Woodgrove, Arnold Grove, Ebenezer and two or three others between the hills. There were always two preachers sent to this circuit, a married man and a single man. The Grove did not belong to the circuit then."
Pg. 300 - "Hamilton Circuit formed 1871, Harmony Church withdrawing from Hillsboro Charge and joining the 'Grove' to form a circuit.
"Rev. J. C. Rice was appointed as first preacher of new charge with Joseph Helm, local preacher, Robert Hoskinson, exhorter, and the following stewards: L. D. Hess, R. S. Wm. McCray, David Carr, Mahlon Tavenner, and a membership of 240.
"War between the States and Reconstruction period in period between Northern and Southern Methodists disagreed, etc. . . . ."
"Colvin Beales, active member, and some Wynkoops." "1844 Methodism became two separate bodies. Separated after the War."
Pg. 305 - "A noted figure in the life of Harmony Church was Rev. Joseph Helm, a local preacher, who served the church in various capacities." "Class leaders for the church were Robert Hoskinson, Mortimer Beales, J. B. Peugh, and J. Frank Mock."
Garrett Wynkoop was also mentioned in the above account and served the Harmony Church in many capacities. He is listed in the quarterly meetings and was on some committees. He also attended the 'Grove' meetings regularly.

GEORGE W. WYNKOOP #1223
Ref: J. E. Norris History of the Lower Shenandoah
From: Mrs. Dorothy Russell Snyder
GEORGE W. WYNKOOP - Farmer, Berryville, Va. - Clarke County, son of Richard A. and Mary F. Wynkoop, was born in Loudoun County, Va. in 1835. His parents were natives of that county, and had eleven children, eight of whom are living. Albert J., John W., James M., Thomas H., Eliza
J., Catherine E., wife of Samuel T. Wynkoop of Loudoun County, Mary F., Hannah A., wife of the Rev. James H. Boyd of Clarke County, Va. and Richard, who was wounded while in the Confederate service, but died some months after of consumption. Their father died in 1867, at the age of sixty-five years, and their mother is still living at the age of seventy-eight years.
George W. was married in 1861 to Susan A., daughter of Benjamin and Mary Saunders, of Loudoun County, Va., and by this union there have been born to them ten children, four of whom died within eight days of diphtheria. Those living are: Mary F. (wife of Benjamin B. Parker), George W., William A., Charles T., Herbert M., and Norman B. Mr. Wynkoop learned the
stone-mason's trade, which he followed till about fifteen years ago, since which time he has been engaged in farming. In August, 1878, he purchased the farm where he resides, on 206 1/2 acres, upon this he has built an elegant brick dwelling and other good substantial buildings. During the war he enlisted in the Sixth Virginia Cavalry, in which he served ten months and was discharged on account of wounds which he received, and from which he has never fully
recovered. Mr. Wynkoop is well known for his untiring industry. After his return from the army, pierced with a bullet in his breast and his right arm in a sling, he cut off a small field of corn with his left hand and built a pair of stills, with a chimney twenty-five feet high, all with his left hand, and thus by his perseverance and industry he has risen from very humble circumstances to that of competency. He is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church
AARON DUBLE, farmer, Wickliffe, son of Andrew and Mary S. Duble, was born in Washington County, Md., August 4, 1822. In 1848, he was married in Clarke County, Va., to Jane Eliza, daughter of Abram and Mary (Grim) Copenhaver, and they have been blessed with seven children:
John H., married Ellen T. Snyder
Mary S. (wife of Milton Baughman)
Virginia Lee (wife of George Wynkoop #12232)
Mr. Duble ranks among the self-made men of Clarke County. He was reared on a farm, but at the age of sixteen years, became apprenticed to the trade of millwright, which business he followed until 1865, when he turned his attention to farming, and in 1877 purchased the farm of 131
acres, where he now dwells and has built an elegant dwelling house. He has been honored with
the magistrate in his district and is a member of the Masonic fraternity.
SAMUEL JACOB McMICHAEL, SR.
Ref: Newspaper article in The Washington Star, by George Kennedy, June 1951 (Excerpts)
An elderly white-haired man, who, although not as tall, looks very much like Connie Mack, stopped in The Star newsroom the other day.
"My name is Samuel J. McMichael," he said. "I'm in town on a little visit from Round Top, Va. That's near Bluemont. I've been living there over 20 years. I thought you might be interested in a recent anniversary, the Ford Theater disaster - 58 years ago this month. I was in it and I believe I am the only living survivor. I am 82 years old."
"The writer knew that by the Ford Theater disaster the visitor did not mean the tragedy of April 14, 1865, when President Lincoln was assassinated there, but a much later event. Mr. Ford never got his theater back after the assassination. Secretary of War Stanton had the stage and boxes and balcony ripped out and it was converted to an office building. In the 90's the floors fell through to the basement with a great loss of life.
"It was at 9:40 a.m. on June 9, 1893," said Mr. McMichael. "I was employed in the annex, which did not collapse. I believe I was the first person to enter the building after the crash."
We were all employees of the Record and Pension Office. There were about 500 of us - all men. There wasn't a woman employed in the building."
I was sitting at my desk in the annex when there was a great crash in the main building and clouds of dust began to pour from it."
Everything in the front part of the main building had fallen in, floors, pillars, girders, timbers, desks, chairs, plaster and employees. In all, 22 were killed and 68 injured."
"When I got out I went to send a telegram to my parents in South Carolina to tell them I was uninjured and to see the girl I married two years later. We had our 56th wedding anniversary in May."
"On the following Wednesday a group of us who had escaped injury went to the White House reception, for in those days the President held a public
reception every Wednesday at noon. As we advanced in line I was the first one to reach President Grover Cleveland and said to him that we were survivors from the Ford Theater."
"He grasped my hand, placed an arm around my shoulders and expressed his great pleasure that we had not been injured. I then had the pleasure of introducing each of my friends to him and each received a hearty handshake and congratulations."

She said "My brother and I never met many of the Wynkoops. Did know my father's younger brother Ami (Roy) (Ami Lacey Wynkoop #122325). He also lived in California, but died just before my father (George Melvin Wynkoop #l22323) Also met and loved Aunt Ethel (Ethel Wynkoop Kackley #122323), she was a dear to us. Met Aunt Jane (Jane Wynkoop Revercomb #122321) briefly, and her family, one son I believe. It was so long ago."
