Wickham Family Reunion

100th Wickham Reunion: Saturday, August 17, 1985
Each year since 1885, the descendants of William H. Wickham and his wife Phoebe Rose have held a family reunion on the shores of beautiful Seneca Lake in upstate New York. William and his family were the first permanent settlers of European descent to reside in Schuyler County, New York. In 1791, they paddled their way to shore and settled the town of Hector. The line of descent for William is: Thomas the Settler>Joseph>Samuel>William. Below is a picture of the reunion program from the 100th reunion in 1985. Scroll down to see the program for the centennial reunion in 1891.

To mark the 100th anniversary of the settlement of Hector, New York by William H. Wickham in 1791, the Centennial Wickham Reunion was held in 1891. Giving the Centennial Address was former Ohio Congressman Charles Preston Wickham (1836-1925), who had finished serving out his term in office in March of that year. Other distinguished guests included William Hull Wickham (1832-1893), former mayor of New York City, who passed away less than two years later. Attendee Rollin C. Wickham of Rutland, Vermont was an important pioneer in the cheese industry.
