Horatio Nelson Wyckoff – 1900
This photo of the Horatio Nelson WYCKOFF family home, located on Exchange Street was taken in 1900 Horatio Nelson WYCKOFF was the son of David Gray WYCKOFF and Elenor Gray WYCKOFF born 1788. Horatio Nelson WYCKOFF, wife was Elizabeth VAN DORN WYCKOFF born in New Jersey – 1836.
My father Robert Wyckoff Cockrell was born in this house in 1909. Robert W. COCKRELL was the son of Dr. Robert E. Cockrell and Theresa Wyckoff Cockrell Robert E. was the son of Elias and Charlotte (KNAPP) Cockrell. Elias Cockrell a grain operator owner in Jerseyville.
When I was looking through stuff, I came across a graduation program for my grandmother’s brother, David A. Wyckoff. Written on another page was a note saying that the Wyckoff Home was across the street from the Jerseyville High School.
So maybe this can help to decide if this house is still standing. I was wondering if this house is still there today?
