Niagara County

1897 Biography - Charles Wynkoop

Wynkoop, Charles, was born in Montgomery county, Pa. September 24, 1804, and came to Niagara county with his father, Abram Wynkoop, 1822. Starting in the middle of the woods they cleared up the land, having to go to mill at Lewiston and Niagara Falls. In 1825 he married Sarah, daughter of John and Margaret Buchanan. Mr. Wynkoop has always been a farmer and has done as much, or more, to clear up the town of Lockport as any other one man. Of strict integrity, he has ever advanced the best interests of his town and townspeople and has ever aided any enterprise intended to benefit his fellow men, and at the close of life of over ninety-three years, receives the respect of all his associates. Mr. Wynkoop is a member of the Lutheran church and a lifelong Democrat, casting his first presidential vote for Andrew Jackson.
