Jacob Wyckoff1

M, b. circa 1759, d. circa 1803
     Jacob Wyckoff was born circa 1759 at NJ. He was the son of Samuel Wyckoff and Geertje Wyckoff.2 Jacob Wyckoff first appears in the tax lists in year 1776, in the household of Samuel Wyckoff [Males were normally listed at starting at age 16, which would indicate he was born about 1759-60.] Samuel Wyckoff migrated with his young family from New Jersey to Loudoun County, VA. Samuel begins appearing in the annual Loudoun Co, tax records in 1768.

Jacob is listed in the 1776, 1777 and 1778 tax lists. In 1779, Samuel sold the 345 acres of land and the family disappear from the Loudoun tax records. In 1788, Jacob is listed as one of the settlers west of Cumberland, about 2 miles south of the current town of Frostburg, MD. He is listed there in the Census and tax records until the year 1804, when his widow Barbara is listed. When his property is sold in 1815, his children are listed: William, Samuel, Jacob, Matthias, Hannah and Cornelius Wicoff. He married Barbara (---). He died circa 1803 at near Frostburg, MD..
(Comment: There is proof that Barbara is a wife of Jacob Waychoff, but there remains the possibility that she might have been his second wife. Family legend is that Cornelius was a step brother of the others. Note the gap in birth years between Cornelius and the others. Also, there is the unproven family legend is that there was a wife "Susan Frost," which suggests that possiblity that Barbara was a second wife of Jacob.)

    Pat Engelhard e-mail address has a letter, dated March 12, 1895, written by Levi Wycuff, grandson of Jacob Sr. Levi states that he and Joshua were the only children of Mythias. Levi states that the heirs of his grandfather were “Jacob Wycuff, Samuel Wycuff, William Wycuff and Corneuls Wycuff & Hannar Wycuff” Levi states “think my Grandfathers name was Joseph and my grandmother name was Barbara” but he is not certain. [Note. Levi was correct about Barbara being the name of his grandmother, who died when he was young. However Levi was not correct about “Joseph” being the name of his grandfather, Jacob, who died before Levi was born. Howard]
    Levi further stated that Mythias died long before his mother did.

    Samuel Wyckoff pension record of his serving in the revolutionary war gives some interesting facts. He enlisted in a Maryland unit. After the war he lived in Loudon Co., Virginia and then to Hardy Co., (which is now in W.V.) where his parents and the rest of his siblings were living. From there he and his family moved into Ohio toward Chillicothe, which was at the time the State Capitol. His daughter Mary married Joshua J. Speakman and settled along the Pike Run, in Eagle Township, Vinton Co., Ohio. He moved North into Eden Township in Licking County for a short while to claim his bounty lands granted to him for his service. Samuel and Mary are both buried in the Pike Run Cemetery.

Barbara (---)

F
     Barbara (---) married Jacob Wyckoff, son of Samuel Wyckoff and Geertje Wyckoff. She died at Greene Co, PA.. She was buried at Cowell Cemetery, 6.5 miles east of, Waynesburg, Greene Co, PA; (this may have been the same Cemetery, that is now called Waychoff Cemetery.)1
(Comment: There is proof that Barbara is a wife of Jacob Waychoff, but there remains the possibility that she might have been his second wife. Family legend is that Cornelius was a step brother of the others. Note the gap in birth years between Cornelius and the others. Also, there is the unproven family legend is that there was a wife "Susan Frost," which suggests that possiblity that Barbara was a second wife of Jacob.)
