Rumor Central.
Rumor Central.

    Like any family, the Wynkoops have a series of persistent family traditions and rumors that crop up in almost every generation. We're going to try to address some of them here and see if there is any truth to them.

    If you have any family rumors that you would like more information on, drop me a line at [email protected]. I don't have all the answers. (There are far too many questions for that.) But I'll be glad to post your questions here for someone else to answer. I love a mystery, and a challenge and I'll bet we can come up with some beauties if we put our minds to it.

    If you have more information to add please drop me a line and I'll be glad to update the conclusions we come to. Think of this page as a work in progress. Together we can fill in the blanks in the family history.

    I'm looking forward to hearing from you.


The Pieter Wijncoop - Cornelius Wijnkoop Connection.
     Is Pieter Pieterse Wijncoop the father of Cornelius Evertsz. Wijnkoop?

Ned Wynkoop and "Wild Bill" Hickok.
     Did Ned sit in on Wild Bill's last hand at the Deadwood Saloon?

The Wynkoop-Roosevelt Connection. The Full Story.
     The connection starts out tenuously, but firms up in the 3rd Generation.

Wynkoops and the Donner Party.
     Did one of the Wynkoops marry a Donner Party survivor?

The Native American Connection.
     A persistent rumor. There may be a way to check for yourself without getting out of your seat.

The Wynkoop-Romanov Connection.
     Are the Wynkoops related to Princess Anastasia?
